When every single day feels the same, it’s hard to break out of your routine. It’s hard to find reasons to pull yourself out of bed in the morning.
Bettering yourself doesn’t mean you’re broken. It doesn’t mean there is something wrong with you that needs fixing. Bettering yourself simply means you’re going to put in the work to take care of yourself.
Lowering your standards isn’t going to help you find love. It might help you find a relationship — but you shouldn’t be settling for any old relationship. You should be searching for THE relationship. The relationship that is going to uplift you. The relationship that is going to better you. The relationship that is going to make you feel completely at peace.
If you’re right for each other, there’s a better chance your relationship will fall apart if you don’t admit how you’re feeling, if you hide your opinions, if you pretend everything is fine in order to avoid confrontation.
Apologizing isn’t going to change what happened between us. It isn’t going to erase the past. It isn’t going to heal my heartbreak. It isn’t going to magically make everything okay again.
How much you accomplish each day doesn’t correlate to your value.
There’s multiple versions of the person you love. There’s the person who makes you laugh, who comforts you, who respects you, who makes you feel beautiful inside and out. And then there’s another person who hurts you, who criticizes you, you shames you, who makes you feel small and insecure.
You’re strong because you have been through a lot but you’re still standing, still breathing, still fighting, still here.
You’re ready for a commitment to come your way — but you’re not going to force yourself to stay with someone who doesn’t suit you perfectly.
Your bad habits don’t define you. They don’t make you a bad person. They don’t make you unlovable.
