Have you ever met someone who claimed that being in a relationship helped them find their self-worth?
I can’t help but feel bad for people who rely on other people to give them the self-worth they desire. People can most definitely have positive effects on people and help them on their way I becoming a better person. From experience, I am definitely a believer in helping someone on that journey. However, I never want to hear people giving someone all of the credit for finding their self-worth. You should have self-worth before, during, and after each and every relationship you have in your life. Regardless of if a relationship ends, do not let a person year away your self-worth. It is something that can be really hard for some people to get, but it can so easily be taken away from each of us.
Please don’t just rely on boyfriend/girlfriend relationships to build your self-worth.
It breaks my heart to hear people feel lowly about themselves because someone doesn’t find them attractive, someone doesn’t want to be with them, etc. Seriously, f*** that.
If you need a sign that you are beautiful and worth it, this is your sign. Don’t let someone’s ignorance and pure rudeness stop you from obtaining and keeping your self-worth. If someone ever calls you ugly or any other demeaning words, they are not worth it.
Do not settle for less than what you deserve. Ever.
