Only care about those who deserve it

All my life I've thought that I shouldn't give up on people.

I believed that as soon as someone came into my life, I should do everything I can to keep them there.

I always thought that whoever comes into my life has to stay there. But you have no idea how wrong I was

Because I was so naive as to believe that whoever comes along deserves a place in my life and in my heart, I was always hurt, betrayed, and abandoned in the end.

The worst part is that I got this on myself.

I kept hurting myself because I couldn't accept that not everyone I love will love me too.

I just couldn't imagine that people could cause you pain if you gave them a basket full of love.

I could not believe it. Why would anyone want to beat me up when I'm always good to them?

It took me a while, a lot of lovesickness, and a few lonely nights crying myself to sleep to realize that there are people who are born mean.

And there is no heart big enough to change it.

I thought if I showed them what love felt like they would choose to be good, but they didn't.

And then I lost myself.

I had no idea what to do.

I just couldn't understand how they could live their lives like this, so I just kept giving and giving and they continued to take my love and kindness without ever giving anything back to me.

Not that I asked, but still ...

One day I just couldn't do it anymore. One day I got so tired and exhausted that I could hardly get out of bed.

I just hated myself for being so weak and I had no more love to give to anyone.

I loved everyone else and forgot to love myself.

And when I did my best to be good to the people around me, they did their best to take advantage of me as best they could.

And then they turned their backs on me when they realized they had nothing more of me. Is it going to get worse?

And then I realized something.

After getting emotionally drained, after doing my best for the people who didn't deserve my best at all, after being left alone when that was the last thing I needed, I realized that sometimes you are your own Have to be a hero and protect your own heart.

Because sometimes people, without whom you cannot imagine your life, can live normally without you.

I'm slowly learning that just because I love someone that doesn't automatically mean that someone is good for me.

Just because I want someone in my life doesn't mean they deserve to be there.

Just because I do my best to be there for people doesn't mean they will appreciate me.

Because some people won't love me no matter what I do. But I haven't completely lost hope.

Because I also know that some people won't stop loving me no matter what I do.

I am slowly learning to distinguish between these two types of people.

I am learning that some things have to happen when we don't want them to, and that there is nothing we can do to prevent it.

I'm slowly learning that there are things I don't want to know, but life will teach me anyway.

I am slowly learning that there are people who I love, but whom I have to let go because they are not good for me.

I am slowly learning to let go of the people who do not appreciate me, and I am learning that by doing this, I am not giving them up, but just doing myself a great favor.

I don't want to hold on anymore just because I think there won't be anyone else.

I'm slowly learning that there will always be someone else who finds me good enough.

I learn that I deserve more than getting hurt over and over by someone who doesn't really mean anything to me.

I am learning to trust in my future and in the fact that there will be someone who values ​​me for who I really am and treats me as I should be treated.

I am learning to protect my heart and I am learning not to let anyone who has wronged me convince me that something is wrong with me.

I'm learning not to devalue myself just because someone else doesn't appreciate me.

I remind myself of what I am worth that no one else can determine my worth and that I am worth it even when others do not see it.

I have now realized that I have done too much for others - and that the only right thing to do is to stop now.

I learn to let go of the people who don't appreciate me and I just leave.

Because no matter how much I care about them, they will never care about me.

No matter how good I am to them, they will never return a favor or choose to be good to someone else.

No matter how selfless I am, you will never stop being selfish. So I let go

I let go of all of the toxic, narcissistic, selfish, and self-centered people in my life.

I'm tired of giving my love, my time, my friendliness and what else do I know to people who don't appreciate it.

No matter how big my love for you is, I let go of you.

I slowly walk her out the door of my life and I learn that it is better to break my heart once than to allow others to break my trust, my expectations and my heart over and over again.

I am learning that not all people who come into my life should stay.

Some of them are just meant to teach me a lesson, such as letting go of those who don't appreciate me.
