Difficult people are very important, - they teach you tolerance and acceptance.​

If all was going your way all the time, you would become a spoiled child, wouldn't everyone? Difficult people are just one of the ways the world teaches us to expand beyond our egos and accept other perspectives on life.

This one hit me a little close to home:
Understanding comes from love.

You might believe that you need to understand another to love them. The truth is you need to love them to understand them.

I have a 'new page' extension that when you open a new browser page shows an image with an unrelated quote at the bottom. I saw one the other day and didn't save it so I looked.

Found it:
remember that sometimes not getting what you want....png

The first one is especially relevant to old girlfriends that didn't work out but you wish they did at the time!
