You feel miserable. You think you’re not good enough. You feel worthless. You’re stuck at something. And there you go again, sobbing under your blanket and getting off the social world.

But it’s okay, dear. We got you inspiring quotes from real inspiring folks to pick you up when you feel like giving up.


That’s the positivity of the late Hisham Go cheering you up from our interview with him last May 2017. It may be hard for you to walk alone in the darkness, but remember that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Get yourself up and claim that “you can do it!”


It's easy to feel pressured, it often comes in a single swipe from our phones through social media. We easily see someone get promoted, engaged or ticked off a travel goal. But man, we have our own timelines, different paths to go, and yes you can also go as far as they can. Just go along and wait for the best upshot to come.


They said you must always put your best foot forward. But, if there is any other way of getting the best results you always wanted, it is being your better-self compared yesterday.


Giving precious things up is part of loving someone. The minute you let yourself into the door of love and commitment, is the minute you surrender yourself to the consequences that may come along the way. Laugh as much as you breathe, and love as much as your heart beats.


“The happiest people on Earth are those who help other people. Not the richer nor the famous ones, the happiest are those who do the most for others.”

Helping and showing your kindness wouldn't cost you anything. And it will not hurt you and your wallet to give sympathy to others.

Now, you fighter, please keep this in mind: you are strong and brave enough to face your problems and the hurt you may be enduring right now will make you a better person. Maybe not today, but sooner.
