You don’t deserve to only feel loved and respected on a handful of days, only to have to build yourself back up after he’s torn you down on all the others.
We know what we want. We’re not going to settle for less, because we know we deserve more.
You might like the instant gratification of being wanted, but it shouldn’t mean a thing if he doesn’t respect you.
You need a man who loves you enough to put your needs first; who is proud of you and your accomplishments; who accepts you despite your imperfection.
When a woman tells you no, that is the end of the conversation. It does not continue. You don’t find a loophole or think it just means you’ve got to try a little harder.
Knowing that you don’t have to hide your scars, your flaws and your insecurities from this person because you know they’ll be sharing theirs with you, too, makes your friendship special.
Act with kindness seeping out of your heart, even when there might not feel like there is any good left in the world because there is, I promise you there is.
An Aries love a straight shooter, and an independent person. If you have a life outside of your friendship or relationship with an Aries, they will respect you deeply.
I want our love to respect us, to respect the beauty of what we create together. And though I want our love to be a fighter, the kind that pushes and battles and draws every weapon it has just to stay in the war against goodbyes, I want our love to know when to walk away. When to lay down its arms. When to let go.
I learned that in order to demand respect from others you need to respect yourself first because if you don’t respect yourself you’ll allow others to walk all over you.
