Coming to terms with the truth is sometimes the hardest reality to face. Acknowledging that cruelty and selfishness are guiding a persons actions you believed to be so good is a painful experience. Realizing just how quickly hate can enter your heart and contaminate your very core is a damaging moment in itself. However, the surprising generosity and support and love of those around you just help you push forward and remember to believe in the goodness of this world allover again.

I think it’s important to remember that if someone in your life is causing you harm, whether it be physically or emotionally, it is okay to stand your ground and remove them from your life. No matter who this person is to you, you deserve to be treated with respect. We have to remember our worth and remember that every one of us deserves to be loved and surrounded by people who honestly care about our well-being.
