I am lonely, yet not everybody will do. I don’t know why, some people fill the gaps but other people emphasize my loneliness.

—Anais Nin (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.

—Nelson Mandela (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

In general, people are not drawn to perfection in others. People are drawn to shared interests, shared problems, and an individual’s life energy. Humans connect with humans. Hiding one’s humanity and trying to project an image of perfection makes a person vague, slippery, lifeless, and uninteresting.
