We should all want more for ourselves. Whether it’s more money, a better place to live, a better job, the relationship of our dreams or that car you’re trying so hard to save up for. We seem to have a tendency to settle and go on as if we can’t get any better. We should go for what we want. What we deserve.
You stay in that job you hate, continue to be depressed, stressed and worn out. Of course you need to pay bills but you deserve better. You’re in a relationship that leaves you feeling alone, worthless and taken for granted. You deserve better. You don’t trust your friends, you know they talk about you behind your back and only invite you over when its convenient for them. You only hang out with them because you don’t want to be alone. You deserve better.
Let’s not forget how important our state of mind is and how much we should take care of ourselves internally in reference to my previous post click to read It’s not easy if you’re someone like me. Someone wanting to stick things out, stay in that job and progress without feeling like you’re being manipulated. Being patient in a relationship for your partners sake. To then be left alone with no explanation time wasted. To hold onto friendships for the purpose of having someone around.
We all hold onto things longer than we should, accept things when were not obliged to. Take crap when we know, we deserve better. Ultimately this leaves us worn out. Depressed even and feeling forced to do things just to make someone else happy. What about you? Aren’t you important too?
I’m not telling you to leave that job, definitely not without having a well thought out plan in place. I’m not saying cut off those friends or leave that relationship. I’m saying put yourself first. The love, the energy the time you put in yourself should be put before and much greater than anyone else.
It’s taken me a long time to get to this stage of my life where I’m okay with moving at a slower pace than everyone else. Taking my time to figure out what I really want and what I truly desire. My journey is my journey. I deserve every blessing that comes my way and I will work hard to pave a pathway for many more.
You deserve any and everything you want in this life. It’s about how bad you want it and the risks you are willing to take to get it. Stop settling. Don’t push that dream any further under the rug than it already is.
You. Deserve. Better.
