Pain is a part of life and it helps you grow.  True strength is smiling when you feel like crying, laughing to hide the pain and going on, no matter what.

2. You are not alone.

When you are experiencing difficult times it often seems like everyone else is doing just fine.  Many of us are fighting to overcome the same battles and we are in this together.  

3. When you depend on people to build you up they’ll have the same power to break you down.

The woman who does not need anyone’s validation is the most feared individual on the planet.  You don’t need to be validated by anyone else.
4. Your mind is a powerful thing. When you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change.

Your mind is everything.  What you think you become.  Train your mind to see the good in every situation.

5. There is always something to be thankful for.

There are shortcuts to happiness and dancing is one of them.  Being positive in a negative situation is a sign of strength.  Someone else is happy with less than what you have.
