Choose yourself: When they take your love for granted, have the strength to walk away
When you are giving your all to someone but receiving nothing in return, choosing to stay is the worst thing you could do.
Because staying with someone who no longer brings value to your life means giving up on yourself.
And giving up on such a kindhearted, loving, compassionate human being is a crime no one should ever commit.
But even in the presence of such a pure soul like yours, some people fail to see the natural beauty you carry. They take your kindness for granted and disregard your generosity as if it meant nothing to them. They grab your loving heart with their filthy hands and play with it until they get bored and move on to the next innocent soul.
Still, you are too kind to chase them out of your life. You are too gentle to cut them off with ease. But sometimes, prioritizing your own needs is much more important than worrying about someone else’s comfort. It is not selfish, or rude. It is necessary.
Do you want to know why? Because you are too good to let someone mess around with your feelings and get away with it.
You are a person who sees the beauty in everything and strives to make this world a better place. The warmth you carry in your heart is enough to melt the iciest souls out there. The softness in your voice can calm the fiercest minds. And the light within you can put a smile on the faces of everyone around you, even when you don’t see it.
You carry a power you may not even know about. This power is what makes you so exceptional and rare. It makes you the extraordinary human being that you are. The vivid energy you bear makes you stand out of the crowd wherever you go. This power is called love.
Love is all that you are and all that you believe in.
You are someone who knows that love is the answer in all aspects of life. Where there is love, there is peace, harmony, and growth. And because you believe in love so much, you find it extremely hard to come to terms with the fact that there are people who don’t see its value. This is why your fragile heart has been broken so many times before.
You hope that everyone else sees the world the way you do. You wish for the ones around you to be as kind, as benevolent, and as empathetic as you are. So you put your faith in them. You give them multiple second chances, trusting that in the end, they would change. But they never do, do they?
And because they would never change, it is time for you to realize that you deserve better. You are worthy of love. Not the shallow love they have been giving you, but a love as powerful as the one you hold in your heart. You deserve to be cared for, respected, appreciated. Your worth deserves to be recognized.
So, please, be strong enough to leave behind those who take your love for granted. You owe it to yourself.
Once you draw the line, you will finally be able to see things clearly. You will realize that no one else gets to decide your fate but you. You will start investing all of the energy, kindness, and empathy you treat others with into nurturing your own delicate soul.
And it will be magical.
