"Don't waste words on people who deserve your silence. Sometimes the most powerful thing you can say is nothing at all."
It all comes down to having respect. Respect for yourself.
This little quote has been really helpful to me lately with some things in life. We as humans are so special individually and so many times we forget that and sacrifice our sanity, happiness, and self worth for others. I'm going to be honest, we are all really smart, and you know when someone doesn't give two poops about you. Think about that one person, friend, ex, anyone that made you so mad and they know those buttons to press to get a rise out of you. Those people know how to bring out the worst in you, and don't deserve to be in your life. If they have the ability to turn you into a monster, they have no business or PRIVILEGE to be in your life. end of story!
So instead of screaming, crying, lashing out, wishing the worst for someone, losing sleep and your voice. Do nothing.
holy shit right? That is SO hard. Especially for me.
But I think about it like this now, wasting all that energy and time and tears on something or someone is pointless. They don't care about you for even making you feel like this, so why give them the gratification of you hurting.
Pick and choose who deserves to be touched by how special you are.
Because you ARE AMAZING and ONLY AMAZING humans should be in your life.
And those that are too messed in the head to see those amazing people, well I feel sorry for them and you should too.
Open your eyes, ears and heart to all the incredible people around you. Don't be egotistical or selfish. Don't settle for less because it's comfortable, don't hold onto nostalgia or memories because it makes you feel safe. Go make new ones with new people who love you :) every part of you, your words and your silence xo
Go forth this week and KICK ASS
