I picked this for my first venture on exploring "the self" because it's a feeling I've experienced a lot. So many times in my life, I thought that people truly cared about me and valued having me in their life. People actually wanted to spend time with me, and I gave my whole self to those friendships. It's taken a lot of hurts to finally realize that sometimes when you invest too much, the relationship becomes unbalanced, and one day you wake up and realize the person you thought was your friend, isn't. I see this as a positive quote, cause it shows that I've learned this lesson, cause I have not had to repeat it in quite a while! It definitely wasn't a fun one to learn, either, but it was well worth it. Sometimes you have to let people go so that you can take better care of yourself. And that's worth it.
