Elisabeth Shue Quotes

Sadness, joy, wonder - all feelings come from a place of grounded strength that comes from trust in yourself. We spend so much time trying to control our feelings out of fear that something may happen, that somebody may not love us, or walk away or die. It's only when you stop living in that fear of what other people might do to you or how they will react, only then are you free to be alive.
I understand now that the vulnerability I've always felt is the greatest strength a person can have. You can't experience life without feeling life. What I've learned is that being vulnerable to somebody you love is not a weakness, it's a strength.
I don't have high expectations anymore. Maybe they've just been beaten out of me.
It would be really wonderful if people connected to the loneliness of what it means to be a human being in the world today.
Every experience makes you grow.
