"I know that you’re confused about who you are. So I’m gonna tell you. You are a hero, who helped your people. You’re a beautiful woman who loved an ugly man. Really, really loved me. You find goodness in others. And when it’s not there, you create it. You make me wanna go back, back…to the best version of me. And that never happened before. So when you look in the mirror…and you don’t know who you are…that’s who you are. Thank you, Belle."
Mr. Gold / Rumpelstiltskin - Once Upon A Time (via jenromance)
We’re all seeking that special person who is right for us. But if you’ve been through enough relationships, you begin to suspect there’s no right person, just different flavors of wrong. Why is this? Because you yourself are wrong in some way, and you seek out partners who are wrong in some complementary way. But it takes a lot of living to grow fully into your own wrongness. And it isn’t until you finally run up against your deepest demons, your unsolvable problems—the ones that make you truly who you are—that we’re ready to find a lifelong mate. Only then do you finally know what you’re looking for. You’re looking for the wrong person. But not just any wrong person: the right wrong person—someone you lovingly gaze upon and think, “This is the problem I want to have.”
I will find that special person who is wrong for me in just the right way.
Let our scars fall in love.
"You know what the issue is with this world?
Everyone wants a magical solution for their problems
and everyone refuses to believe in magic."

"True love isn’t easy, but it must be fought for because once you find it, it can never be replaced."
I honestly think we all love Belle because she teaches us a very important lesson in life and that is that there is always good in a person. Nobody is perfect, everyone makes mistakes, everyone has something in the past they regret, but even through all of those struggles a person is born again and is pure hearted. A person’s actions do not define them for life but they help develop themselves as well as a sense of pride, endurance, and love.
