I have spent the last couple of years trying to truly believe that my worth is determined by the way I treat others, not by the way they treat me.
Is it just me or does it feel like the world is dark? When I say the world is dark I actually mean people.
The best thing to break darkness is light. If I can't stand someone's ignorance, I should be more poignant with my truth. If I can't stomach someone's hate, I should be more open with how I love.
Our relationship wasn’t perfect, or even healthy, but up until the exact moment that it ended, the thought that I may actually not marry him really didn’t enter my mind.
