I asked my friend, “Do you stay with them and put up with their bad behavior because you think you don’t deserve better?”
They needed a pep talk: “Do you think that just because at one time you were different you deserve to be treated like back then? You’re who you are right now. Forgive the past and allow goodness into your life. You deserve someone great and you’re great.”
Life is all about choices that lead me in different ways. What’s great are u-turns. Maybe I’m going somewhere and one day realize I don’t want to go there. Eerk!! Back up. Try again. I don’t have to do anything I don’t want to do. I’m in charge of my life not anyone else. I decide who and what are in my life because I have plans for me.
