  • I’m sorry.
  • I forgive you.
  • You can do it!

  • I disagree with you, but I still like you as a person who is a human being and I will treat you like that because if I didn’t it would make everything bad and that’s what a lot of people do and it’s lame.
  • Sometimes you just gotta scream.
  • Life is tough, but so are you.
  • Something nice!
