Don’t trade your best for their worst

There is rarely a day that passes without me reading or hearing about someone who invested years, if not decades of their life, to people who were not invested in the relationship.

When the reality of that betrayal finally hits home, it destroys our spirit and convinces us that we’ve sacrificed the best years of our life while having nothing more to look forward to.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The same way we were able to create beauty in such a desolate landscape, we must recognise that the best of us that we gave was simply the truth of who we were. And are.

The moment we discard that because it was discarded by an ingrate who was looking for servitude of their ego when they could have had love for their essence, we become ingrates just like them.

Don’t trade who you are for who they were. It’s never a fair trade. You owe yourself more than that.

And self-pity will only ever prevent you from being true to yourself.

Embrace the beauty of who you are despite the ugly of who they were.

That’s how we take back the gift that they discarded so that we may be able find a more fitting recipient.

As long as you’re breathing, there’s always hope.
