Stop blaming yourself. Stop climbing mountains for people who don’t even walk one step forward for you
You are not selfish for putting yourself first and protecting your heart from people who don’t take the time to consider your feelings.
I’ve run out of fucks to give and am searching for grace and goodness through the struggle.
Being selfish for the right reasons is a form of self-preservation, an act of self-love.
The truth is that there is immense power in quietly pursuing your dreams, even though it may not seem as impressive on the surface.
It boils down to knowing your true worth and standing in your own power. As you do, others recognise your genuineness and will treat you accordingly.

Saying ‘no’ is honouring yourself, your time, and your worth. If you keep letting people taken an arm when you just offered a hand, eventually you’ll have nothing left for yourself.
