10 Kelly Cutrone Quotes That Will Change Your Entire Outlook On Life


If you’re like me, you first fell in love with Kelly Cutrone during her time as the sass queen on MTV’s “The Hills.” She is the ultimate badass bitch we all secretly (or not so secretly) want to be. Her accomplishments are endless, and she is definitely my spirit animal. Even though her book “If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You” was published in the far ago year of 2010, her words of advice are timeless. Check out this list of quotes that you need to read right now:

1. “Here the game was on, and if anyone didn’t like it, they could just fuck off.”

2. “Dreams won’t always take you on a straight path of destiny, but they’re usually related to what your soul wants for you.”

3. “Sometimes, if not most of the time, you find out who you are by figuring out who and what you are not.”

4. “I advise you to stop sharing your dreams with people who try to hold you back.”

5. “After all, you can’t truly be happy if you’ve never known pain. You can’t truly feel joy if you’ve never felt heartbreak. You can’t really know what it’s like to be filled unless you’ve been empty. And here’s the other thing: sometimes in life seasons don’t come in order; instead of fall, winter, spring, summer, we get three winters in a row. But that doesn’t mean spring won’t come eventually.”

6. “I had no idea there’s a difference between being in love and being life partners.”

7. “I learned that you have to give up your life as you know it to get a new one: that sometimes you need to let go of everything you’re clinging to and start over, whether because you’ve outgrown it or because it’s not working anymore or because it was wrong for you in the first place.”

8. “This is an important lesson to remember if you’re having a bad day, a bad month, or even a shitty year. Things will change: you won’t feel this way forever. And anyway, sometimes the hardest lessons are the ones your soul needs the most. I believe you can’t feel real joy unless you’ve felt heartache. You can’t have a sense of victory unless you know what it means to fail. You can’t know what it’s like to feel holy until you know what it’s like to feel really fucking evil. And you can’t be birthed again until you’ve died.”

9. “We’ve already established that life is going to kick you in your ass sometimes and that there’s no way to avoid that, but if you get up and keep doing what you do, giving your best self each time, you eventually achieve not only success but that great psychic coup of detachment.”

10. “When you’re following your inner voice, doors tend to eventually open for you, even if they mostly slam at first.”
