Hi everyone, I'm not going to mention the unmentionable here. I'm looking to start a thread on things you have read regarding healing yourself and your soul in all aspects of life.
I've struggled with boundaries in pretty much all aspects of my life. This quote I heard today was especially good:
"Boundaries are not about pushing the other away. The boundary violator CHOOSES to PUSH you away when they violate your boundaries."
What quotes have helped you in life?

Don't worry about what's ahead of you. Go as far as you can; from there you can see further.
Everything works out in the end. If it hasn't worked out yet, it isn't the end.
I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. I well remember them and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope. Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed. For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great is Thy faithfulness.
This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curses. Now choose life, that you and your children may live.

When life knocks you down, calmly get back up, smile, and very politely say "you hit like a bitch"
"Big girl panties? No, I'm putting on my ass kicker boots and heading out commando"
"Healing is a matter of time but it is also a matter of opportunity"
"You made the best decision you could with the information and tools you had at the time"
"The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem"
"Sometimes you just have to throw on a crown and remind them who they're dealing with"
"I am enough"

"Just remember, if half of all first marriages end in divorce, what do the others end in? Death! So you got off easy."
"You won't believe where you'll be this time next year."
"Nobody wins in divorce. Some people just lose less."
