I realized I was in a relationship with a narcissist who got off on my empathetic soul. That’s problematic because it destroyed my self worth.
I put all my happiness and who I was into him, which is exactly what he wanted. This way he would always have power over me. He won’t ever admit what he did. He won’t ever apologize.
But I’m choosing to let go and grow myself to be my best self.
Someone brilliant told me, when you have so much to offer it limits your pool.
People who don’t match your level try to reach for you and sometimes you let them, but it always leads to disappointment for someone.
I’m making a promise to myself to not lower my standards.
I’m making a promise to swear off boys. I won’t fall for the skeezy lines and the toned arms. I won’t fall for the beautiful eyes or the great smile.
I’m going to fall in love with myself.
This is the start of a new chapter.
