I know it’s not my place to judge. I know that my life isn’t better than theirs and that I’m not perfect. I don’t know their lives, the situations that they really are in and the choices they have made to get them there. I do know, however, that life is short and we deserve to be happy and to be treated with respect. There is nothing I hate more than settling. OK, I also hate whales, “50 Shades of Grey,” drive-thru windows, and the stalky white part of romaine lettuce. We’ll save that for another day.
If someone in your life is making you feel like you aren’t a special creation of worth who is loved by God and others, then I believe you should seriously reevaluate that relationship. I’m talking friendly or romantic here, people. I think the best thing I’ve learned in my life is that if you truly love someone then you should be able to be open and honest with them about anything. If someone you love is treating you like garbage or is making you feel sad then you need to talk about it! Don’t tip-toe around it and hold your feelings in and only confide in the cashier at Target or other irrelevant people. Be an adult and go to the source to solve the issue. You can do it in a loving way without blaming. Simply state what you’re having a hard time with. Someone who truly loves you will work on it and try to do better.
