You don’t have to suffer to receive the love that you desire. You don’t have to suffer to receive the recognition that you desire. You don’t have to suffer to receive all the things of this world that are meant for you.
Why do we wear suffering as a badge of honor? Why do we love to promote how much we’ve been disrespected, walked over and taken for granted? Why do we get upset when no one rewards us for dealing with behavior that shouldn’t have been dealt with in the first place?
The person that has caused you suffering may never acknowledge the suffering that they brought upon you. But I need you to acknowledge the suffering that you’ve brought upon yourself by dealing with this in the first place. You owe it to yourself!
Believe that you are worthy of a love that doesn’t require suffering. Believe that you are worthy of relationships that don’t require neglecting your boundaries. Believe that you are worthy of receiving everything that is meant for you without suffering for them first.
