If you don't respect yourself, no one else will. If you let people put you down, who is going to make them stop? If you let someone treat you in a way you know you shouldn't be treated, who will treat you right?
It's hard for people to change. Change isn't easy. And the longer you let things go on that you know are wrong, the harder it will be to break the mold in which that person has become accustomed.
Now I realize that walking away from something you truly think you love is hard, I get it. But you have to take a step back and go over all of the horrible things someone has said, all of the horrible things someone has done, and all of the horrible things that someone has made you feel, and make a decision that in the end is going to save your life. Don't waste your life trying to make someone else happy when all they do is cut you down every chance that they get. Spite is not something that should ever be in a relationship. Eventually you'll be forty, miserable, resentful, and regretful.
A life wasted is a life lost.
"I float on the streets that are empty
take the path that the wind only knows
Tonight is the last time that I'll ever be here
It's never quite simple, it's never that safe
it never seems perfect until it's too late
It's never the right time to find a new way
There's an answer in the sound of a train
there is wisdom past the bridge on the bay
There's a lifetime through the fog, in the rain
there's a beauty in walking away"
Sometimes admitting failure is just
what you need to become successful.
This one's for you. <3
