7. Contacting your ex’s parents. “I wanted to call to see if your daughter is okay, since she broke up with me last Tuesday.”
“But I love him!” makes me cringe. To this I say, “So what?” Lots of people love hard drugs, but that isn’t exactly healthy either.
If you choose to forgive, you’re choosing yourself.
By holding on to hurt and upset, the only person we’re really hurting is ourselves.
You teach people how to treat you.
You are number one. You must walk away.
If they’re not in an emotional space where they can handle further responsibilities, it might be a considerable wait before they’re ready to settle down
Repeat after me: depression is not a choice.
Hint: Love is not enough.
The real problem happens when we compromise when it comes to the big things like who we’re with, what kind of treatment we should accept or who we’re “good enough” to date.
