Beautiful sentences by Anna Gavalda
I have learned that you should not become dependent on anyone or any relationship! And this damn. It was the most impossible thing I have ever learned.
When you stay and forgive, they think you do not know how to go. People should be reminded of the loss, people do not always stay in any situation; They open the door and leave forever.
You have to cry for everything once. Until the tears are dry. This sad body should be tossed and then the book of life should be flipped. He thought of something else. You have to move your legs and start all over again.
It is always easier to be sad in life than to be happy, but I do not like those who choose the easiest way at all! Rejoice in God and do whatever you can to be happy!
