When Painful Things Happen and You Don’t Understand Why | Tiny Buddha: Wisdom Quotes, Letting Go, Letting Happiness In | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it

The people we want to change—there are others out there who'd accept them, just as they are. We can choose to do that, or we can set them free and create the possibility of finding people we'd never want to change.
