Inspired by Bloom For Yourself By April Green
There are few things in life we have control over..
The food we eat, the clothes we wear, the texts we send, and most importantly the way we let others treat us.
When we’re not treated fairly, we tend to forget that.
We say people walk all over us, but what we’re really saying is that the value of our self worth belongs in someone else’s hands.
And the truth is, the way others treat us is just a reflection of the way we value ourselves.
Because if we were treated any worse than the way we treat ourselves, we wouldn’t take it.
But we tend to ignore the signs that are right in front of us.
And I want you to know that ignoring red flags isn’t “loving hard.”
Ignoring red flags isn’t going “all in.”
Ignoring red flags is not a pattern of love
It’s a pattern of suffering.
But there’s hope.
Maybe if we treated ourselves a little kinder, a little softer, we could re-set the tolerance of what we’ve accepted from others.
Instead of fearing loneliness we can learn to embrace it, instead of holding onto cold hearts, we can start by warming up our own.
And instead of letting people walk all over you, be brave enough to let them walk away.
