Easier said than done. Im guilty of wanting the people around me to be more content then myself only to open myself up to being walked on and treated less important to a point that they become almost mentally abusive to me as the relationship progresses.
"the woman who does not require validation from anyone is the most feared individual on the planet" - becouse she does what she wants,when she wants,where she wants and doesn't give a damn about what others may think or say about her. She gives no fucks.
This will be something I live by for the rest of my life. I feel like this to a few people & I'm not having it anymore. Don't do to other people what you wouldn't like them to do to you. Your life isn't more important then theirs. Remember that!
Someone left me and I was made to fear life without them, but it was a blessing in disguise, I then realized how toxic they were and my life today is just Wonderfully bet idyl and happiness surrounds me, I don't allow toxic people into my life. :)
