you have to respect and love yourself enough to understand that you dont deserve to be treated, responded to, or dealt with in a certain, demeaning way by people whom you know and/or dont know, especially as a woman.
and you also have to respect and love yourself enough to surround yourself among people that understand that; that believe that; that value that; that will make things right in order that you are treated in a deserving, upright manner, no matter what the cost.
but also respect and love yourself enough to let go of those people in your life that are able to recognize that, but fail to do anything about it. let them go. just let them go.
sooo true. This is exactly what I realized today. That I am worth so much more than letting myself be trapped in this endless cycle where I am the only one who gets hurt. If I don’t mean enough to somebody else for them to change the fact that they are hurting me, why should they mean anything to me at all? They can apologize all they want but that doesn’t change anything at all. The fact remains that their actions haven’t changed a bit. And there isn’t room for that kind of anguish in my life. It’s time to let go. Completely.
