Even though you’ve been taught that you should never quit, quitting can actually be a type of freedom. You shouldn’t continue down a career path that makes you miserable, just like you shouldn’t keep people in your life who make you miserable.
It’s not enough that you’ve hurt me. You had to turn everyone against me, too.
You shouldn’t settle for someone you feel iffy about because you are convinced they’re the only one who is ever going to show interest in you.
You don’t have to accept half their love and half their attention because you feel like that’s as good as you’re going to get.
You don’t call it quits because things have gotten too hard. You don’t assume you are destined to remain in the same place for the rest of your existence. You don’t lose faith in yourself.
Toxic people are so hard to walk away from because there are plenty of good qualities to cancel out their bad qualities — but you can’t pay too much attention to how they treat you on their good days and completely ignore how horribly they treat you on their bad days.
You’ve been tricked into thinking that your emotions are wrong, that your gut feelings are wrong, that everything about you is wrong, wrong, wrong.
Don’t stay in one place when you’re ready to leave. Don’t allow your history to tether you to the past. You don’t have to keep repeating your routine because you’ve grown used to it, because it’s the scary to switch things up, because you would rather live a predictable life than step into the unknown.
There are moments when bad timing is simply procrastination. It’s your fear grabbing ahold of you.
When you love someone, you don’t distance yourself from them emotionally. You don’t put up a wall, shutting them out. You don’t allow your fears from past experiences cloud your current relationship.
