Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.

Don’t think you get nothing from quitting. You get guilt, anger, depression, confusion, etc…Never said they were feelings you wanted.

Abuse manipulates and twists a child’s natural sense of trust and love. Her innocent feelings are belittled or mocked and she learns to ignore her feelings. She can’t afford to feel the full range of feelings in her body while she’s being abused—pain, outrage, hate, vengeance, confusion, arousal. So she short-circuits them and goes numb. For many children, any expression of feelings, even a single tear, is cause for more severe abuse. Again, the only recourse is to shut down. Feelings go underground.

It is the perfection of God’s works that they are all done with the greatest simplicity. He is the God of order and not of confusion.

Religion is a system of wishful illusions together with a disavowal of reality, such as we find nowhere else but in a state of blissful hallucinatory confusion. Religion’s eleventh commandment is “Thou shalt not question.”

Never hide things from hardcore thinkers. They get more aggravated, more provoked by confusion than the most painful truths.

Eventually all the pieces fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moment and know that everything happens for a reason.
When the test of your character and moral courage comes – regardless of the noise and confusion around you – there will be a moment of inner silence in which you must decide what to do. Your character will be defined by your decision. And it is yours and yours alone to make.
Knowing what to do is the only way to lift you out of confusion, a man of no direction will end up in the valley of loneliness.
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares like you!
I am stronger because of my hard times, wiser because of my mistakes, happier because of my experiences, and smarter because of my moments of confusion.
Stubborn people never forgive or forget, ignorant people forgive and forget, wise people forgive but never forget.
Never pass up a chance to say “I love you” to the people you care most about because we aren’t promised a tomorrow.
Someday life will all make perfect sense, so laugh through the confusion smile through the tears, and keep reminding yourself everything happens for a reason.
