No man who loves you will make you feel as if you’re compromising yourself to be with him. Because that’s not love, that’s manipulation.
Sometime bravery is letting go.
Quit. Just walk away. From the work that isn’t fulfilling, the boyfriend who brings you down, the marriage that makes you feel like shit, the booze that you feel guilty about, the guilt you carry on your shoulders. Whatever. Give it up.
Saving yourself is your own job. Full stop.
Sometimes you can’t be someone’s savior because they need to fix themselves, love themselves, and learn to love you.
You see, we wreck ourselves because we keep looking at the wrong direction, we keep searching for the incompatible lover, and we keep believing that everyone’s going to hurt us
There will be nights when even though you’re sleeping next to him, you will feel lonelier than being in bed by yourself.
The reality is, most times YOU need to show the average person how to treat you; male or female.
What we don’t need, is someone to save us. Only you can save you.
It’s not endearing or romantic to depend solely on someone else. Just as it isn’t a testament to your strength if you force yourself to be alone by denying your emotions. You have to find a balance.
