Do you check in with them? Do they cross your mind often? Do they help you grow in any way?
As much as I love human interaction and making connections, I believe that most of them are just distractions.
Words are just simple gestures that make you feel good in that moment.
I value myself more now for not settling for anything less than what I put out. You tried and I respect you for that. You just didn’t try hard enough to make way for a different outcome.
When someone makes a decision that directly affects you but doesn’t involve you, it says more about their character and less about what you are worth.
I believe this self-journey is meant to find what’s really important.
