" Don't stress over anything that you can't change."
Written in 2008 by Cedric Johnson Jr. --- Oregon
I selected this passage because so many people go into depression over things that can't be changed or replaced. Therefore we find ourselves in a place of guilt and regret instead of looking and evaluating the situation, thinking to yourself and asking, "How can I make this better so that it won't happen again? Or how can I make this situation, this burden, help me realize that it's not all that bad?"

" When we're kind & good to people, they look at us like we're weak but we are stronger than them; that's why we're nice."
Written in 2010 by Renee Scalfani --- Massachusetts
I thought of this because so many nice people are taken for granted or thought of as weak individuals for our kindness when we are truly strong people wanting to share.
