“The more chances you give someone the less respect they’ll have for you.
They’ll ignore the standards you’ve set because they know another chance will be given.
They’re not afraid to lose you because they know no matter what you wont walk away.
They depend on your forgiveness and they are comfortable disrespecting you because you allow it.
You are worthy, take control of your life, and demand the respect you deserve.”
We all know someone like this! Whether it be a family member or friend, we all have people whom will continue to disrespect us. Sad but true!
In my case, it’s family members. Im not going to go into detail about what they’ve done because frankly, Im embarrassed by them.
The first lesson is dont let them bring you down to their level. We are stronger and smarter than they’ve ever anticipated. Being kind and forgiving does not make us weak. We have true character and are worthy of being respected. Dont let their petty bullshit phase you! They have no character, people with no character dont belong in your life.
Lesson two, let them go. For some, thats easier said than done. But whomever is treating you unfairly and disrespecting you is NOT worth your time and efforts. They’re not worth your respect. Spend that time and effort on people who actually respect you, treat you like a person, and dont look down on you with judgements and harsh criticism.
If you have someone in your life who is toxic, they wont change, theyre only goal is to use you until you’re no longer useful, then move on to the next til they need you again. These people smile and lie to your face then turn against you as soon as you turn around.
Comment below if you are having trouble letting a toxic person go and/or tell me your story about what obstacles you’ve overcome to rid yourself of those whom have no character nor know what true character is.
Thank you for reading, have a wonderful rest of your day!
