You feel fine apologizing incessantly, but never ask for apologies from other people who have wronged you.
So sorry to disapoint you, but I’m keeping my standards high. And that doesn’t make me a bitch. That doesn’t make me snobby. That makes me brave and courageous. Because I’d rather be single for a long time, than get mistreated by people who don’t give a crap about me. I’d rather love myself, than to be half loved by some asshole who only wants to get in my pants.
It is not cowardice or weakness. It is your sole responsibility to protect your well-being and your emotional health.
Inner emptiness is a sign that love is lacking inside. When you feel empty inside and you haven’t learned how to fill yourself with love, you might turn to food, alcohol, drugs, TV, sex, porn, spending and so on to try to fill the inner emptiness. These addictions are a poor substitute for love, which is what you are really needing.
When we don’t believe we’re worthy we’re playing small, accepting less than we aimed for in the first place.
We ignore the red flags because we think we can handle them, we think we can live with a few unanswered texts or flaky behavior or a few months of confusion but we can’t.
every person is a dream that lingers even after it’s bound to forgotten
There are people who love you, simply because you are you.
If you spend the majority of your time in worlds where people are accomplishing incredible things, all of a sudden that starts to seem normal.
You appreciate yourself for the imperfect, complex, and astounding being you are.
