Inspiration: Love Yourself

Weekend inspiration #1

About a week ago, I received a phone call from an ex friend. This ex friend and I use to party, drink, laugh and have lots of fun. We were inseparable. So inseparable, in fact that her best friend would question my loyalty and friendship. As if that was a requirement to her happiness. Her best friend was jealous of me. I couldn't understand, for the life of me, why I made said best-friend jealous. If anything they were so close in mind and thought, that they would finish each others sentences. They had there own language. I admired that.

Until one day, I realized, to be her friend, I had to be at the center of all there jokes. I hated that. There happiness and continued Best friendship required each other to belittle or embarrass me at my own expense.  My ex friend was like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. When it was just her and I, the world made sense--we understood each other, we supported each other, we cared about each other. However, when her best-friend was around she was a total B*&ch. Like, straight out of a Mean Girls movie. It was Night and Day.

I begin to question my own logic. Why was I putting up with this? Why did I need her part-time friend ship? Why didn't I speak up? Why didn't I do something in those regrettable moments I can never get back? Just Why, Why, Why.  

My Point is...

  • Love yourself. 
  • Love who you are. 
  • Don't waste your time on people who do not value you. 
  • Never tolerate BS. 
  • Never regret anything you do  
  • Always put your feelings, emotions, your heart and your love first. 

I was so focus on having a friend that I forgot to be the ultimate friend to myself. So, it's been over 6 years since I ended that toxic friendship and moved on.

...By the way, I sent that phone call straight to voicemail! Girl Bye!
