I’d rather have a muffin top than to go on a awful date that makes me want to throw up. I’d rather gain a few pounds than be with someone who doesn’t love me in the same way. I’d rather eat alone in my apartment, then go through a really awkward and anxiety inducing date.
Stop settling for the relationships where you are unhappy, and undervalued. Cliché as it could be, you deserve the love you give to other people. If you know you’re right, go, fight for yourself. Never allow those bad things to outweigh the good ones. The world is much better than we know.
