Instagram photo by whittneyywilliamsI'm tired of letting myself settle with the crappy end of the stick. I'm tired of not getting what I deserve. I'm tired of not being loved the way I should be. I'm tired of not being adored and wanted the way I should. I'm tired of people doing me wrong and always looking great while I look crazy. I'm tired of my heart hurting and being left alone.
I've been told a million times to put myself first, to think of me a little more. I always thought if you treated people the way you wanted to be treated, that's how you would get treated. It's not.
I was told to cross oceans for people who wouldn't jump puddles for me because you're supposed to be the bigger person. Always be kind, they would say; walk away. Don't fight fire with fire. Be a lady, be nice, don't raise your voice.
From now on I will love myself. I will not put anymore effort into those who do not put forth the same. I will not cross oceans for someone will not jump a puddle for me. I will use my voice. I will say no. I will not let you push me around because I want you stay around. I will treat you the way you treat me. #loveyourself
