Through the stories that I hear and my own experiences over time, I have to say that enough is enough! I’m worried…
When did dating and relationships become THIS thing?! At some point in time, people started treating each other as disposable objects. People are so oversaturated with all that’s available at any given time, that the fear of losing out on something “even better” makes them let go of others without even giving it an extra thought.
People became numbers instead of names. Lovers became distant strangers without a goodbye. Feelings are thrown away like yesterday’s garbage, and so many are used to doing so that they don’t even feel bad about it.
I’m not saying that this is how everyone acts. There are nice, honest and loving people out there! I know many, and I’m grateful for every single one of them.
They are the ones that brighten up your day.
The people that will always have something to say to make you laugh after you’ve shared your stories of heartbreak and sorrow.
The ones that will remind you to not spend time, wasting energy on the people that drag you down and make you feel unworthy.
The ones that love you for you.
The ones that help you along the path to self-love.
The ones that will remind you of why you should love and respect yourself enough to let go of anything toxic that takes up space in your life.
The ones that will always tell you the truth, even though it might hurt.
Those are the real ones! The good people of this world ❤️
And wouldn’t it be nice if (like the good people) everyone would have enough respect for other people’s feelings, to have the guts, to be honest about their own? Because honesty might hurt, but playing games and serving lies (or even worse; just silence) is even more painful. It leaves people with big questions unanswered, trust that’s broken and hard to mend, and hearts shattered into a million pieces.
We need more of the good people out there. We need to all work on loving ourselves and treating ourselves right so that treating others the same way will come as natural as breathing.
Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, and don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours. (one of my favorite quotes from Sunscreen by Baz Luhrmann)
We need to be kinder. We need to love more. We need to treat each other better!
We can do better than this ❤️ I know it!
