"Someday everything will make perfect sense. So for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears, and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason." Even if someday it doesn't make perfect sense, it happened for a reason.
"The beginning of love is to let the one we love be perfectly themselves, not twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them." - Thomas Merton, No Man is an Island
