You just gotta learn it for yourself, you can’t let broken people break your heart. No type of emotional abuse should ever be allowed to touch your conscious and the way you view yourself.. because then you’ll start to excuse their behaviour and let the guilt keep you loyal to an undeserving person.
It’s natural, for me, to be kind to others.
But I definitely had to learn the hard way to be kind to myself.
And once you’ve got that figured out — love won’t seem so scary anymore. In fact, her arms widen with anticipation: finally, finally you’re home.
