Loving someone who doesn’t love you back is like hugging a cactus; the tighter you hold on, the more it hurts.
Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy.
We have to hurt in order to know, fall in order to grow, lose in order to gain, because all of life’s lessons are learnt through pain.
It’s terrible to lose someone we love, but it’s even worse to lose ourselves while loving them.
