Some of it...

I learned the hard way:
~Forcing results often leads to breaking something or someone.
~Rigid beliefs render us fragile.
~Listening to understand is love in action.

I read on the page:
~It is more effective to provide inspiration for what others might do than to have aspirations for what others should do. (Jerry Harvey)
~It will make an immense difference with your faith and spirit whether you look upon civilization as a good thing that is becoming better or as a bad and evil thing that is decaying. (Wallace Wattles)
~A simple truth, repeated as often as it is ignored, is that if you tell a child it can do absolutely anything, or that it can’t do anything at all, you will in all likelihood be proven right. (Fredrik Backman)

Came from heartbreak:
~The lifespan of a dog is significantly shorter than that of a human.
~Failure simply means something greater is waiting for you to find it. Keep going.
~You must get up and move forward knowing as sure as the sun rises, your heart will be broken again.

Came with age:
~Life is what you make of it.
~I am 100% responsible for the energy I bring—to everything.
~When I call on my higher nature, better thing show up.

Their rationale is that comments are difficult to moderate and individuals paying to invite publishers into their minds and hearts will behave appropriately. Since Born Free is subscription fee free, we’ll stick with email communication for now. If you’d like to tell me how you feel about paid subscriptions, I’m interested in your thoughts. The creators of Substack do not charge publishers directly. They fund themselves and the platform through fees on paid subscriptions—they keep the place advertisement free.
