Being a second best or being expected to be someone you're not unfairly takes away some of your dignity. Being loved for who you are and being a priority should be an unbending principle. Remember your worth, be your true self and know you are valuable to someone. Respect and true love should not come with a price to pay. Don't settle for less or be with someone who doesn't defend your honor under any circumstance. Live a deserving life and live bigger than a second choice.
There is always someone somewhere who wishes to be with you and to treat you like a treasure so don't be sad for those who don't even take care of you.
Self-respect is the greatest love we can give ourselves. I will only be in a relationship where I am treated with respect and total love, I know my true value.
