Who are you letting into your life? Be mindful of the energy they bring.
I can’t stress enough how important it is that you surround yourself with supportive people who make you feel important and special, and who enhance your life with their presence. If their presence is making you feel worse instead of better, re-evaluate why you’re letting them stay.
you all need to stop settling
stop putting yourself in the presence of people who make you feel confused or less-than
don’t try to salvage a friendship if they make you feel like shit
don’t try to get into the brain of someone who’s closing themselves off to you
don’t try to start a relationship with someone who’s lukewarm
tell yourself “i deserve better” — because you do. it’s a hard thing to practice, but do it every day. every thing you do, throughout the day, tell yourself “i deserve this.” you deserve good things.
it’s hard to unlearn settling, but trust me, high standards will save you every time
