Caring too much… Guilty
Loving too much… Guilty
Giving far too many chances… Guilty
Forgiving someone who was never sorry… Guilty
Thinking all people are inherently good… Guilty
Waiting for change that would never come… Guilty
Staying too long… Guilty
Imprisonment for life inside a heart full of hurt and pain.
Love that person you see in the mirror.
When someone shows you their true colours, believe them the first time. Never try to paint a different picture.
Set your standards high and keep them there.
Set boundaries and don’t let anyone cross them.
Respect yourself enough to walk away when someone treats you poorly.
Don’t make anyone else pay for a mistake they didn’t make.
Set yourself free and live and love your life, your way. That is not being selfish, but absolutely necessary.
