Quotes that help or have helped you??

So what are some quotes ( they don't have to be famous quotes) they could just be something a friend, therapist or w.e have said to you that help you get through your day, have helped you get through your days in the past or that have helped you make a big life changing decision ? What are the quotes and how did they help you ?

 "A child would rather come from a broken home than live in one." This quote from Dr. Phil helped me make the decision to leave my son's father.

 "You have your child's whole life to prove to him/her that you are a good mother, not just today."  A therapist said this to me when I was going to her to get help for my postpartum depression. I remind myself of this every single day I wake up. It helps me be the best mother I can be.

"Do the best you can do THAT day and that's all you can expect from yourself." The same therapist said that to me when trying to receive help for my PPD and again, I say that to myself every single day I wake up. It helps me stay sane and be the best mother I can be.  

I believe that any mother that has or have had PPD will understand those last quotes/saying better than most people. ya know ? If I didn't hear them quotes, I don't know where I would be today!!

Thanks for your replies!! Maybe your quotes/saying can help someone now :)

  • "Life would be Impossible without great friends"


    my sister said this to me after a very hard year that her and I both just had. It is so true family is great, but when you move away and they can't be there all the time you need great friends to see you through the hard stuff and to laugh with you when there are good times.
