The art of forgiving and the art of sticking up for yourself are not in the same museum gallery.
Forgiving means opening up your heart for someone you love again. Forgiving means letting go of what someone has done to you because you’re in peace with it now. Forgiving means a lot of different things. But forgiving doesn’t mean that it’s allowed for anyone to disrespect you.
Stick up for yourself, don’t be ashamed.
When you’re held back, step forward.
When you’re treated like dirt, think of the diamonds in your eyes they can’t see.
When they break you, find a way to keep the pieces until you’ll find the strength to be whole again.
You’re worth so much.
