Hi everyone, its been a minute so i’ll get right into it
I’ve missed this space. sigh.
You’ve got to know what you deserve. Again – You’ve got to know what you deserve. Know your worth. This comes with a certain level of honesty with yourself, the type of honesty that can sometimes hurt, the kind that makes you more self aware than you ever were.
Let me explain. I’ll use the person i know the best as my example. Myself. I know what I put out there, the kind of commitment and work I put into my relationships, from the one with my father, to the one with my closest friends, from the broken ones to that have never changed. I know when i’ve been lazy but I also know that if i died today, all the people I care about would have no doubts about my love for them. Because of these i have certain expectations of these relationships. And when these aren’t met it’s time to re-evaluate.
Its a hard process, actually demanding what you rightfully deserve, because I know as a person I have invested way too much time in myself, not to get the very best (by my own standards). Because its good to be forgiving, give second chances etc but not to your own detriment. I had being doing this for a long time but after a while you realize the you are the one letting yourself be held back.
Make a mental note to yourself, i’m doing it too, to start asking for more- at your work, from yourself from your relationships, and continue to work on yourself so that you will be deserving of the best when the opportunity comes.
