It's time to stop.
Stop apologizing for being emotionally unavailable.
Stop saying you're sorry because you're incapable of loving anyone but yourself right now.
Stop making yourself feel like the villain for following your gut instincts.
Stop allowing others blame you for putting your heart first.
Stop letting them make you feel bad for not being interested in things that don't help you grow.
Stop looking for someone else to complete you when you are already whole on your own.
And then you can start.
Start embracing it all.
Start living boldly and unapologetically.
Start listening to your heart and only your heart.
Start pleasing yourself more often instead of being hung up on what others think.
Start treating yourself with the same dignity and respect you give everyone else.
Start loving yourself.
Start refusing to settle for anything less than the best.
Start thriving for your individuality.
Start shaping your life into exactly what you always hoped it would be.
Starting creating your own happiness.
Never be sorry for the way you feel, be free; and most importantly be YOU.
