There are people in my life I have had complicated relationships with, up and downs such is life. For years there has been someone in my life I have continued to do the most for. I have moved heaven and earth to make things happen in this relationship. Always trying to go that extra mile, not always succeeding but doing the heavy lifting.
Yesterday something shifted for me. I was once again on the receiving end of someone who claims to love me doing the least with no explanation and no alternatives. I immediately went into doing the most…for about 4 seconds. As I thought of offering fixes that would have me doing more than was necessary I just shook my head. I didn’t even attempt to “make things work”
I have many issues that are residue from childhood. I have allowed some people into my life who refused to make even an effort to put me first. For numerous years I have accepted that and continued to try and keep those people in my life.
I HAVE people in my life who have done the most for ME and I in return have tried to do the same. I know those people see me as someone who is to be cherished and loved. They do whatever they can when they can, with no excuses no apologies.
It’s officially official. I’m done doing the most for those who are worth less than the least.
It feels good. It feels right. I am so very thankful for this growth and realization.
