🔽Compassion & Loyalty🔽
Those two components are truly my strengths.
I feel so much empathy for the women who choose to live and breathe with out grasping the true definition of self-love.
I used to be in a relationship that was so meaningless. It left me stranded, bruised, and to a breaking point I never thought I'd reach.
I thought the more I gave to him the better he'd treat me.
I was wrong. Little by little I gave all my love, time, effort, and energy to someone who would not remain faithful, and would not make an effort to love me the way he knew I deserved to be loved.
I remember the feeling of being cheated on as if it were yestersay.
As if I had no value or meaning.
I felt that way for nearly 3 years.
It broke me apart to the point of hostility and aggravation outside of my norm.
Even after trying to work past that I was miserable. I'd clean, cook, do the laundry, get the groceries, all the normal duties a woman does for her man.
I never got it in return.
Not once did I get back what i so graciously gave.
I would cook, and put the food away. I would make meals then after he would say an ingredient in the meal wasn't something he liked.
I was mommy, girlfriend, housekeeper, and unimportant.
I moved back to Idaho from Georgia. The moment I decided to let our terribly warped relationship go I understood what loving myself consisted of.
It meant putting my needs first, when no one else would.
Even when it was so hard to choose to walk away, I felt stronger with every step I took.
I found my soul again. The One that had been shoved aside too easily.
I vowed to myself to never stay in an unhealthy environment no matter the person, circumstances, and aftermath.
Experiences aren't just good or bad, to be remembered or forgotten....they are lessons learned.
💯Always know your worth, and if someone tries to diminish your value, they are of no value in your life.
💋love yourself ladies.
