You Do Deserve Better, Really

Such a good read, i teared a bit. Because the realization finally hits me like a train on a track. Better without you, toxic people.

The Perks of Being a WallflowerThe Perks of Being a Wallflower

Why is it so easy for us to settle for so much less than we deserve? Why do we let people use us, time and time again, and only blame ourselves? Thinking there’s something wrong with ourselves instead of seeing that it wasn’t us, it was them. They were the problem. Instead, we believe that it was something we did or said, the way we look, the way we overthink and over analyze. It only leads to a lower self-esteem and even lower standards. You create this poison in your mind, missing the point entirely.

It isn’t you.
It’s them.

Now, put feelings into the mix and things get even more complicated. If you feel something for this person who keeps using you, you’re even more likely to believe it’s something you’ve done. You’re the reason that they can’t commit; you’re not good enough.

False.
