“Life is more beautiful knowing that we’ve taken a loan on death. Even light is treasured more when there’s darkness.”

“You can do it man, you can do it. Let’s be less lazy and work harder tomorrow. Let’s become me who loves myself. It’s important to love yourself, please, cherish yourself. Rest a bit, enjoy life, comfortably.”

“Maybe life is a procedure of realizing how things that looked trivial at first were actually most shining moments, rather than finding shiny things among trivial moments. We all are obsessed with results, even myself right now.”

“If short-lived resolutions continue, they become lifelong. Giving up is nothing bad, just give up and start over. So please don’t underestimate yourself no matter what happens and consider yourself as a valuable person.”

“If you look only at the current moment, it’s obviously difficult. But where you go next after this moment is a beautiful place. I’m sure you can overcome this.”

“Wouldn’t it be so sad if you get tied down by one mistake, which already happened, and let it mar other things you could have done better? That mistake belongs in the past. If you’ve learned at least one thing from it, then it’s fine.”
