"Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind" - Taylor Swift
Ever felt like you’re always the one who cares more in a relationship? Whether it be a platonic relationship or a romantic one, I think it’s something everyone has gone through at some point in life… Unfortunately!
You feel like it’s always you who puts in the effort, is there for support and takes time out of the day to be there for that certain someone – whether they deserve it or not you’ll be there in a flash.
Personally, I have the very common flaw of giving people WAY too many chances because I always hope that somewhere down the line, they’ll change. I’m only beginning to realise that there’s only so many chances you can give until you’re just being plain blind and stupid and I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be blind and stupid anymore.
So if someone hasn't come to mind already, think about someone you could apply this to and ask yourself: is the relationship really doing anything for you, or are you just clinging onto something that is no longer there?
If someone really wants to be in your life, you’ll know it – you shouldn’t have to question it or force it.
Letting go is so difficult, especially if you have a big heart. Sometimes, however, you get the best light from burning a bridge. Don’t let how you’re feeling now make you think that your kindness is a bad thing because it’s not, it’s something beautiful.
So the moral of the story is, don’t let one bad experience or relationship make you bitter. Would you prefer to be remembered as the person who was kind, or the person that turned bitter?
