Respect Yourself enough to say I deserve better


Respect yourself enough to say,"I deserve better."


This quote reminds me of my old self. In the past, I had been struggling to let go of someone who didn't deserve my love, tears, attention, time, energy, etc.

When you truly love someone, you will lose yourself. You will give your all to that person and even think you can't live without him. It would be great if the person you love treated you the way you treated him. But if he didn't treat you like you treated him, you should better move on. 

Letting go of someone and moving on is not easy, especially when you are genuinely in love with him. It is like myself in the past that I allowed someone to stay in my life longer than he deserved. I tried to hold on to him because I thought I didn't want to lose him. I thought I couldn't live without him. 

And the more I tried to hold on to him, the more I was hurt. Often, I cried myself to sleep. I even felt like it was the end of the world. I had let myself wallow in self-pity for months until there came a time when I realized that I am more than my pains and my feelings; I am worthy, and I deserve better.

When you acknowledge your worth, you love yourself enough; you respect yourself and won't let yourself stay in a relationship that does not serve you. You won't settle for anything less than you deserve.
