Knowing You Are Worth It

      Is loving someone just enough or should there be more to it? I sit back and watch a lot of broken relationships around me and wonder, if it’s okay to allow yourself to stick with a men/woman who chooses to not acknowledge who you are as a human being. I was not taught how to love a man or even love myself the right way, so I had to teach myself. It was one of the hardest lessons I had to learn in my life. When I finally found my answer, I locked it in my palm and I take it wherever I go. I learned that it’s okay to love myself more than any man that walks in or out of my life, because I’m worth it. I learned that it’s okay to speak up for what’s right and what’s wrong because again, I am always worth it.

      But, I don’t think a lot of people see it from my point of view. I’m a strong woman who believes that when enough is enough, then it’s enough. No more crying and imploring this or that person to change and put you first, because they will never see that you’re worth it. I see so many beautiful women and handsome men go through things that I would never expect to see happening. But, I must ask this question, is it worth staying with someone who doesn’t value who you are and want to see you do better, because you’re worth it? Or is it hard to let go of someone you have so much history with simply because of the history? Having a book of history together does not support your argument on why you choose to be neglected every day and cry yourself to sleep because you’re not sure if you should leave or stay.

     You must look at yourself and understand that no matter how hard things are now, they will get better. But, holding on to something that can eventually harm you physically and emotionally in the end is not a smart outlook for you. The best thing you can do is walk away with your head held high, and not look back no matter how tempting it gets. As I always say and will continue to say throughout my years of writing, love is the strongest drug that will come into anyone’s life. But, all love is not good love. Or, is it even safe to say that bad love is love?

      Take time to sit back and think about what is right for you and what is wrong. What can create happiness and what can create depression. This is the first start to moving on and accepting things for what they truly are. Time heals all and better days are simply sailing on the way. But, never forget to wake up every morning and look in the mirror and tell yourself that you are worth it. Nothing can or will stand in the way of your worthiness.
