This quote spoke volumes to me. I’m that person who suck it up and says “I’m sorry” EVEN if I did nothing wrong.
My heart has been a blessing and a curse. I always seem to care a little bit too much about other people(I’ve told you all this before, lol).
When I don’t see eye to eye with my family & friends my heart won’t allow me to hold a grudge. I always find myself reaching out to them eventually. Why do I do it you may ask?! Well, I think that’s just how God made me AND from experience I know it’s not what actually happened but how people perceive what’s happened that matters most.
However, I get tired of always being the bigger person and reaching out or trying to make amends. I’d love to not care and not act on my feelings, but to do that means I’m not being my true self. One of my goals when making decisions is being true to me, so I’ve come up with a way to acknowledge the situation and leaving the ball in the other persons court.
For example, I’ll speak my peace (via text) and let them know I’m available to talk if/when they would like to and go far enough to say what days I’m available, lol. You may say this is petty but this is just enough to see if you mean as much to them as they did to you.
Message: You can’t have a relationship by yourself so if they take you up on your offer to talk about it, cool. If not, live your life without them. Cherish the memories you share and keep on keeping on. Oh yea, ALWAYS BE TRUE TO YOU!!!!!
