One of the hardest things, walking away from someone not because you no longer love them … but because you love yourself more.
I’ve been called selfish, heartless and many other colourful adjectives. I probably deserve them.
We are taught to put other people first, it’s the polite thing to do. I find this odd as we are the masters of our own happiness. All too often we rely on others to make us happy, only to be disappointed.
It took a number of years for me to feel comfortable putting my needs and wants and more importantly my happiness first. It’s tough and this is not the first time I’ve lost someone because I don’t want to become the person they need me to be.
There’s compromise and there’s sacrifice and people often confuse the two.
In certain situations I would compromise, but I will never sacrifice my dreams … not for anyone!
