If You Don’t Read Anything Else, Read This: YOU ARE WORTHY

Life has a funny way of working out. Sometimes we want something so bad that we lose sight of what’s really important. People are always asking me for advice on relationships and the truth is, I tell them what I would want someone to tell me. However, in past relationships, I’ve found myself going against my advice. I often wonder why people come to me for relationship advice because I’ve only been in ONE successful relationship: my current one. Growing up I watched my mom go through an unhealthy number of bad relationships and I often felt sorry for her.  

As a young child, I wanted nothing more than my mom to meet someone who would love her and appreciate her as well as take care of us. Loser after loser would stumble through the front door with whiskey on his breath, instantly becoming my worst nightmare. Luckily, my mom’s boyfriend’s never abused us. My mom is a beautiful person inside and out. She has always put her children before herself and she has done whatever it takes to see us happy. There were times growing up where I wondered if we were going to make it, but somehow my mom always made it work. The sad thing about this is, I don’t think that my mom knew her worth. If you don’t read anything else please read this: YOU ARE WORTHY.  

I believe that I’ve learned a thing or two in my twenty-three years on this Earth. I know what it’s like to hurt so bad inside that your heart feels like it’s in the pit of your stomach. I also know what it’s like to have the biggest smile on your face because in that moment you believe you’re the happiest person on the planet. The key to living a worthy life is being happy with yourself first. You cannot be happy with someone else until you know your own worth and NEVER settle for anything less than you deserve. My grandma once told me that not everyone who came into my life was meant to stay and that sometimes God places those “temporary people” into our lives as our stepping stone to help us get to where we are meant to be. If there’s someone in your life that is bringing you down, the best thing to do is to let them go. Toxic relationships are the worst kind of relationship and for me, my toxic relationship was with my father.  

My dad is an alcoholic, plain and simple. He claims to care about his family but the truth is that he only cares about himself. Growing up I struggled with anger and depression from not having my dad around. Nobody wants to admit that they were abandoned by their father but this is the cold hard truth. I felt unworthy because I didn’t understand how someone who claimed to care about me was never around. When I was nine years old, I didn’t understand how my dad could vanish for three years without one phone call or much less a birthday card. It took twenty-three years for me to realize that my dad will probably never learn how to keep a promise and he will only call when it’s convenient for him or he’s trying to play the good dad card. Once I made the decision to not care that my dad didn’t care about me, I felt like one-thousand pounds lifted off of my shoulders. The most important lesson I’ve learned from my dad is this: you cannot care for others that don’t care about you because it will only make you feel unworthy.  

If someone doesn’t care about you enough to help you when you need it, then you don’t need them. If someone doesn’t care enough to pick up the phone and see how you’re doing, then you don’t need to worry about them. If someone doesn’t cry over you, then you don’t need to cry over them. Life is hard, relationships are hard. However, when you have those positive people in your life that make you want to be a better person, don’t let them go. It’s these people that show you your worth and make you feel like you can conquer the world. When life gets you down on your knees and you can’t feel like you can go on, get back up and know that at least one person in this world thinks you’re worthy.  

-XOXO Ashley

PSA Indefinite Hiatus

These aren’t the types of posts I like to make, but it needs to be done.

I’m taking a break, a long indefinite one.

I’m at a point where I’m starting to feel like writing isn’t worth it anymore. I spend hours putting effort into stories that barely get any feedback and honestly if I’m not getting feedback from my followers why even bother posting? It’s extremely disheartening to spend time and effort into something I’m proud of to post it here and only get a hand full of responses.

I understand that since I rarely write Dean/Jensen anymore and I don’t write smut that the love for my blog and my feedback levels are going to be fairly low but it’s gotten to a point where it’s just not enough.

I appreciate every single reblog, reply and ask that I do get. They mean the world to me and I thank all of those people from the bottom of my heart.

I will be back on to post the master list for my 12 Days of Christmas challenge when the due date for that rolls around but other than that I don’t know when or if I’ll be back.

I’ll still be on my main blog, @ashleymalfoy, and I may even be hanging around on my TWD blog, @daaryl-dixxon, but I make no promises on the latter.

That being said, I love you all to pieces.

xoxo Ashley

Hey Taylor! It’s Ashley here :). We need to have a little conversation. I wanted to share a little story with you about my mom. Okay long story short, she’s been by my side for the last 26 years, and we’ve definitely had our disagreements in that timespan, but if it wasn’t for her I honestly don’t know where I’d be in my life right now. Because of her, I’ve been able to make my dreams a reality and have realized how important it is to always follow my heart because it can never steer you wrong, but if for some reason it does, well, those mistakes were meant to happen and I can only learn and get stronger from them and that’s what life is all about. Things happen for a reason, as my mom always says, and me finding you ten years ago was icing on the cake of this beautiful life that my mom has given me. We saw you two years ago on the Red Tour in Tulsa, and it was such a wonderful experience to share with her, one we’ll definitely never forget. I love her so much, Taylor, and I would just like to kindly request that you sing “The Best Day” on the B-Stage in Dallas Oct. 17. I thought this would be even more fitting because AT&T Stadium is where your mom presented you with your Milestone Achievement Award, and that was such a beautiful moment. So, I thought it would be amazing if maybe you would consider playing this song not only for my mom, but for your amazing mother as well because she has also done so much to make so many people happy. I’m so appreciative and grateful to have my mom in my life, and Mama Swift is a precious gift to this world as well. Thank you for everything, Taylor, and me, my mom, and my bestie @alltoowell89 will be singing and awkwardly dancing along with you in Sec. C138 Row 5 Seats 7, 8, 9 if maybe you wanted to say hi :) We all love you so very much Taylor, and we cannot wait to spend the best day with you on Saturday!!! Xoxo, Ashley.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! :) This morning my fiance’ picked me up for breakfast, and in the car was a dozen beautiful red roses waiting for me!

I hope you are all having a wonderful day! I just wanted to make a short little post! Valentine’s is and always has been one of my favorite holidays. Even as kid I always loved it! I love the colors, red and pink! And I love that it’s close to my birthday! I was actually supposed to be born on Valentine’s Day! Anyways, every year, I see negative comments from people. This year, I’ve seen a lot more, and from people who are married!! It makes me sad because Valentine’s Day is not just for those who are married or who have a boyfriend or girlfriend. It’s a holiday for EVERYONE. It’s a day to show your loved ones how much you care and appreciate them! You know? Celebrate with your mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, siblings, etc! It isn’t just for those who have a significant other! So just because you’re single, don’t go and post stuff all over your social media accounts, because it ruins it for those who actually love the holiday! I love all of you and truly hope that you’re day has been amazing! If I knew you all in real life, I would give you all some sort of treat or gift, kinda like when we were in elementary school, and you passed out a valentine to the whole classroom! Anyways, I’m mumbling..

Happy Valentine’s Day again! <3

Feel free to inbox me and share with me how your day is going and if you got anything I would love to hear!!!

XOXO, Ashley
