You need to forgive yourself for accepting less than you deserved.You need to forgive yourself for letting people into your heart who didn’t want to stay and for kissing strangers who only wanted to play.

It’s time to forgive yourself for hoping, for having faith in the softness of love and how it could prevail. It’s time to forgive yourself for believing that “I love you” meant “I’ll stay”.

Forgive the people who walked away and made you feel worthless.

Do not fall back into the arms of those who broke you. Do not let your scars convince you that your heart does not hold value. Fight for the kind of love you know you deserve, demand the kind of love you desire and it will come. 

But first, forgive yourself.
