Narrow Their Choice

Know Your Worth
When someone treats you like you’re just one of many options,
help them narrow their choice, by removing yourself from the equation.
Sometimes you have to try not to care, no matter how much you do.
Because, sometimes, you can mean almost nothing
to someone who means so much to you.
It’s not pride, it’s self-respect.

Don’t expect to see positive changes in your life
if you surround yourself with negative people.

Don’t give part-time people a full-time position in your life.
Know your value and what you have to offer,
and never settle for anything less than what you deserve.
