When you start seeing your worth and suddenly realize that you have always been stepped on for a very long time and you decide to stop being a doormat, you’ll find it harder to stay around people who don’t value you.
The most important relationship you can have in life is one with yourself. If you have that, then any relationship is a PLUS and not a must.
You are not a back-up plan. You are worth more than someone’s second choice. You can’t force yourself to stop caring for someone, but you can tell yourself that you deserve better. Never settle to be someone’s second best. Raise your standards and choose to be with someone who will treat you with the same respect and consideration you would treat them. You can’t expect to be someone else’s priority if you aren’t your own.
