I'm old enough now to do this. When I was younger I "took" a lot in relationships. I thought that if I didn't, I would lose those people. Never once did I think that maybe I SHOULD lose those people. That I was worth more and better. That my happiness counted for anything.
At 51 I can now see what an amazing person I am. ;) You know what I mean. I deserve and have earned my happiness. So if I have to walk away from a relationship in order to preserve my own happiness I do. Because I choose ME! Nobody else will choose me first! HA! I have to do it!
Do you do that? Choose yourself first? You should. Examine your relationships and stop being an option. ♥
