Ignorance is NOT bliss.
Bigotry & Racism are always unacceptable.
Pretending something isn't happening doesn't make it so.
Not everyone is going to like you.
Not everyone has to be friends. This does NOT mean you have to be enemies.
Peace is the ONLY way to solve our problems.
Your perception of your reality IS your reality.
You are entitled to your own opinions. You are not, however, entitled to your own facts.
Nobody ever promised your life would be easy.
The truth is always the truth. Even if you don't like it.
No 2 people will agree about everything all of the time.
Sometimes, even when you work hard, it's not enough.
You can make a difference in the world.
Stop waiting for everyone else to fix it.
If you stay in your comfort zone you will never achieve anything big.
'Mental illness' is not a death sentence.
Children are supposed to do better than their parents.
Parents never get to quit being parents.
ALL addictions can be overcome.
Willpower does count.
Stand up for your beliefs even if you are the only one who believes in them.
Opinions aren't right or wrong. They just are.
Asking for help does not make you weak.
Children should be our #1 priority.
Parents make mistakes. That doesn't mean they can't be forgiven.
Stand up for yourself.
Nobody has the right to abuse you.
You don't have the right to be abusive.
Everyone has the right to feel safe.
Everyone's rights have to be protected or nobody's are.
Just because you don't like it doesn't make it wrong.
If you don't stand up against bigotry & hatred you are guilty of both.
Times change. Right & wrong don't.
It doesn't matter if it used to be acceptable. If it's wrong, it's wrong.
It doesn't matter if it used to be unacceptable. If it's right, it's right.
Violence is NEVER the solution.
Violence begets violence.
You wouldn't hit another adult for doing something you don't like. Why then would it be okay to hit a child?
You CAN control yourself.
Not everything has to be a 'thing'.
Religion without Science is superstition.
Religion is man-made. Spirituality is God-made.
Everyone has something to offer.
You don't have to accept everyone's thoughts, opinions or beliefs to be respectful.
You don't have to like everyone.
Treating somebody with respect does not mean you have to tolerate their bad behavior.
Just because they are family doesn't mean they have to be in your life.
Sometimes walking away is the only thing you can do.
Treat yourself the way you want others to treat you.
