Emotionally I have paid the price. My emotional debt cup is full.
I would choose a relationship over myself always being the first to apologize.
I was needy. I was nice. I would overshare.
This went on for some time.
Is it possible to be too loyal?
One day I got mad. Being fed up was the catalyst for change.
I had to become independent of people and practice self-reliance.
Maya Angelou talked about belonging to yourself.
Brene Brown spoke of having the courage to stand alone.
It’s important to have your own back and not be too vulnerable.
Walk away from people who don’t respect you.
Become a private person rather than answering people’s every question.
Don’t always be calling people. Let them call you.
Don’t always be available. People can wait for you.
Don’t seek external validation when you can give it to yourself.
Become mysterious. Saying less is more. And don’t waste your breath on just anyone.
You must protect yourself.
These days I put on my suit of armor. It’s an attitude really.
I think wearing shoes with a bit of a heel would do me just fine.
This is the me I’m becoming. It’s about time.
