In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.
"We must be our own before we can be another's." Wise words to live by. Love yourself. Respect yourself. Give yourself what you deserve. Work for what you long for. Find yourself in the process. And along the way you'll find someone just as driven, accomplished, loving, and accepting.
