"Christmas is a time for miracles, love, and forgiveness. It is time to love and forgive yourself, Dandelion."
"There is only one person you need to save right now, and that’s yourself."
"Dani didn't recognize the woman staring back at her in the mirror. She saw herself with open eyes. His love changed her.”
"This time, when he looked at her, he saw something different. It wasn’t a broken girl with shattered, out-of-place pieces, barely holding it together. Now he saw the quiet strength of a survivor, with beautiful light shining from the cracks in her armor. If she endured all of that, she’d survive him pushing her to redemption.”
“Let my love heal you, let it strengthen you, let it put the broken pieces of your heart back together. If it takes every day for the rest of my life, I won’t give up. I’ll be right here, picking up the smallest of the shattered shards and carefully gluing them back into place. Allowing nothing but the light of your soul to shine through the splintered cracks that remain.” “You’d do that? You want me? Like this?” “Yes. Unequivocally, without hesitation. Yes. I want you. All of you. But first, I want you to love yourself. To see your worth and own it. Because as much as I love you, Danielle, nothing is more powerful than loving yourself.”
