Sometimes being nice is not good enough. Whether we like it or not, there is someone who will take advantage of your kindness. It gets exhausting, reaching to the point where you just want to walk away. And yet, here we are, still believing in killing them with kindness.
There are more than 102 million people in this country alone, and we choose to spend our time over someone who only makes us feel bad about ourselves. Aiming to get their approval to make us feel better and accepted, fearing rejection while hoping and waiting for them to change, but will it ever happen?
You give them your time and effort, but what do you really get in return?
There will be days where in we’re hoping for them to wake up on the right side of the bed. Hoping in the back of our minds that they will be nicer to us, if they happen to be in a good mood. The fact is, we don’t have to be bothered about it every single time.
If someone doesn’t know how to respect you as a person, then it’s time to walk away. You don’t exist to be pushed around, to be involved with someone who thinks that they are better than you, to be their go-to person ONLY when they’re bored. You deserve better than that, you deserve someone better and you deserve to feel better. You don’t need someone to tell you that you are not good enough, because you are good enough.
You need to let go of those people, who doesn’t know how to treat you well, because it’s emotionally deteriorating. Don’t let them pull you down, just to make themselves feel better. We deserve the space to grow as a person, and the only way is to detach from toxic people. Set yourself free from the chains, and walk away.
As sad as it may sound, they don’t need us to stick around, as much as we may want them to. If someone wants you, they would know how to treat you better. We have options, so do they. There will always be something or someone worth your time, and sometimes, being alone and away from them is better.
