Don’t give people so much power over you that their silence leaves you questioning your worth.
I just love this quote so much because it really hits home. I have to remind myself of this every single day. Multiple people I never imagined putting me through this, have, and it simply hurts. When the other end of the line goes silent it’s only natural that your mind starts to question :
- What did I do?
- How could they just stop all contact?
- What could I have done differently?
- Does my presence in their life mean that little?
- What did I really mean to this person?
…and the list goes on and on, always putting ourself at fault. I’m such a “let’s talk this through” kind of person. Everyone in my life means so much to me and I don’t ever want to picture my life without them. I think that’s where I have the biggest struggle; that someone could so easily ignore and remove me from their life without a word.
I can sort of even understand a blowup or something of that nature ending in two going their own ways, but if I’m being honest, even that’s hard for me to grasp. I guess it’s all really situational at that point.
I will always fight my hardest for you and never want you questioning how special you are and how much you mean to me. I could never let someone go on thinking they are anything less. You and I both deserve so much more!
