You ever notice how we tend to make excuses for people?
Like, after a while, they don’t even have to give a reason for why they disappoint anymore & we settle for getting our feelings hurt again.
We sit back quietly because we don’t want to ruffle their feathers, all the while, we’re setting a precedent for what we’re willing to accept.
When you see him down the line, you may wonder why he seemed to be different with the next one. Perhaps it was because she required more of him. Perhaps she recognized her value.
I’m sure we all do, right. Or at least we claim to. But if we really valued ourselves, then we wouldn’t allow ANYONE to give us any less than we give.
If you want someone to stop treating you badly, then stop making it easy for them.
