you don’t need people but you’ll always need yourself. you don’t need people and so once you get rid of this unhealthy idea, you’ll find that it may actually be easier to choose the right people to accept into your life if you decide to cultivate any relationships outside of yourself. the people you entertain…including family can often have a major impact on your relationship with self as well as others. it is equally important to understand that being alone doesn’t always mean being lonely and sometimes being alone provides the best opportunity to create relationships that truly matter and ones that last but they all begin with yourself. you can’t love yourself and love people who hurt you. it doesn’t work that way. you love yourself enough to do away with any relationship that disrupts your peace. destroy this idea that your life and it’s quality is completely reliant on the bonds you have with others. give yourself more credit and understand that the bond you create your own heart and soul will often be the greatest indication of the type of life you lead.
Ask yourself when you go to sleep at night, how will I be remembered if I died tomorrow? Have I done the best I could? Made amends to those I should? Am I hurting someone I shouldn’t? Can I do better? If you can do better … then start now.
