|Wise up girl.|
So yeah... I've decided that it's kinda bullshit. That maybe it doesn't make me the "better person" to always be piping up and taking the blame for everything and that maybe I should hold them accountable for their actions and be willing to watch them walk out of my life if they are not willing to man up and do the right thing.
"When someone shows you who they are, believe them the FIRST time." -Maya Angelou
That statement is my promise to myself in 2014. This is going to be the year that when I recognize that behavior on someone new, for the FIRST time, I am going to wash my hands of them and run the other direction. I am going to proactively spare myself heartache and needless self-destruction. I am going to selfishly put my happiness first. I am going to expect more and refuse to settle. I am going to be perfectly happy alone, blissfully so in comparison to the negative energy these relationships have brought me year after year. I am going to stand up for myself and repeat the motto "one and done." No more second, third, or three hundred chances. If you show me who you are, I am going to believe you, and take a pass if it's not a match for me.
Here's to finding happiness within and loving myself enough.
|Good girl... now keep your promise.|
