“The only person that deserves a special place in your life is someone that never made you feel like you were an option in theirs.”
― Shannon L. Alder
We give up on people who don’t truly see our value in this world.
The people who take us for granted and refuse to accept us for our true selves. Those who make us feel unworthy of their attention. Those who act as if we’re just one of many fishes in the sea.
We give up on the people who think they can get away with lying to us. Those who almost never stick to their word. The people who like our positives but don’t want to accept the fact that, just like every other human being, we too have flaws. The people who criticize us for our shortcomings.
We give up on the people who don’t truly care whether we fail or succeed.
Those who have no compassion for us and don’t value our input. Those who don’t respect us. The people who always put themselves first, no matter what may happen to us.
We give up on the people who make us feel as if we have no value. Those who decide to spend time with us only when there’s nothing better to do. Those who could do with or without us. Those who make us feel like we always have to fight for their ever-so dwindling attention. Those for whom we are always last on the list.
We give up on the people who don’t treat us with the respect we deserve.
Those who treat us as if we have no dignity. Those who take advantage of our good nature. The ones who act as if they’re above us and think we should be on our knees for their crumbs of attention.
We give up on the people who couldn’t care less whether they’re losing us, because they will never know who we truly are, and how much unconditional love we are capable of.
Because we know we deserve more out of life.
Because we know that we are valuable.
Because we still have some dignity left in us to let anyone make us doubt our worth and wonder whether we are good enough to be treated with kindness, love, and respect.
