No matter what, once in your life, someone will hurt you. That someone will take all that you are, and rip it into pieces and they won’t even watch where those pieces land. But through the breakdown, you’ll learn something about yourself. You’ll learn that you are strong. And no matter how hard they destroy you, that you can conquer anyone and anything.
In life you’ll meet a lot of mean and disrespectful people. If they hurt you, tell yourself that it’s because they’ve got issues and you’re on a different level than they are. That will help keep you from reacting to their insensitivity. Because there is nothing worse than bitterness and vengeance. Walk away, keep your dignity and always be true to yourself.
No one has the right to tell you that they hurt deeper than you. No one has the right to invalidate your feelings because they “got through it just fine.” No one has the right to tell you to suck it up because other people have it “worse.” Hardships are not comparable. Your struggles are real, legitimate, and just as difficult as anyone else’s.
To all the people along the way who hurt me, lied to me, betrayed me, disappointed me, broke my heart, you unknowingly pointed me in the direction of my own North Star. Without the messes, I wouldn’t have a message. You taught me MORE than you could EVER take away from me…so thank you!
