We all have had that one person that we thought we can help change; help become a better person, but in attempts of doing so, we, you; I have lost myself.
Many of us believe that when we truly love someone we will stick with them no matter what. We will stick with them when things get rough. We will stick with them when they are going through the worst of times, and we will stick with them when they treat us like a worthless piece of garbage.
Life and love isn’t about making yourself and your self worth any less because you have come across someone that is complicated and needs a push in the right direction.
Someone comes along whom we see potential in. We become so intrigued and fascinated, that all of a sudden it begins to consume our mind; our body and our soul. We can’t think straight and we have lost all focus on what is really important; WHO is really important. You, I; US.
More than ever we want to show them that we are worth it; we are worthy of their love and no matter how much they push us away and say all these hurtful things to us, it doesn’t matter because we know they do not mean it and that deep, deep down inside they truly care about us.
They are so insecure with themselves and their own life, that they choose to prey on our vulnerabilities and sense of caring. They feed off our positive energy and become motivated to destroy it, to destroy us and who we are.
But we allow this when we willingly tolerate their ruthless behavior and disrespect. We allow the negativity into our lives when we let them in. We allow them to suck the energy and all the goodness that we have so preciously took the time to invest in ourselves; for what?
To help them? To help someone that doesn’t want to be helped? Showing them that their behavior is okay and anyone will deal with it.
NO man or woman that truly cares and loves you will ever, try to intentionally hurt you. They will not sit there and tell you all these things that make you question yourself, make you question if you are worth it or not,
because darling; you are worth it.
WE are all worth it.
I am worth it.
It doesn’t matter how much we care about someone or how much we can see them in our future if they were to just change that one thing, which is by far the biggest thing about themselves.
People don’t change, they just become better at hiding their flaws.
Sometimes the best thing is, letting go.
Letting go because we know that no matter how hard we try, they will never be happy with us because they can never be happy with themselves.
Letting go because we love them, and loving them enough to know that we have to.
And letting go because we love ourselves and will not stand for the pain inflicted upon us.
That’s love; Not perfect love, but realistic love.
Love for yourself.
Love for ourselves .
Love, for myself.
