I stole this from Facebook today, text and all:
"Choose your relationships wisely. Being alone will never cause as much loneliness as the wrong relationships. Be with people who know your worth. You don’t need lots of friends to be happy; just a few real ones who appreciate you for who you are. Oftentimes walking away has nothing to do with weakness, and everything to do with strength. We walk away not because we want others to realize our worth, but because we finally realize our own worth."
I remember lying in bed wondering what I did to deserve to be in a relationship that was so wrong for me. What did I do to deserve this?
You know what I did? I didn't value myself enough to realize that being without someone is much better than being with someone who you're fundamentally unhappy with.
Glad I finally realized that. It took 35 years, but I finally realized my worth and grew the strength to move on.
Here's to choosing wisely!
