Jonathan, I wholeheartedly agree with this entire article, but especially this part. I have made some epic and stupid decisions, relationship wise, simply because I was lonely as well. And for the most part, I made them because I didn’t love myself, so I chose someone who was bad for me, simply because I didn’t think I deserved any better. Could I have told you that at the time? Hell no. But hindsight is truly 20/20.
I don’t regret the choices I made, honestly. They were situations that happened, I lived in them, and best of all, I LEARNED from them. I learned about myself, how to love myself because no one else did, but most of all, how to avoid those traps again and again.
Trust me, I had to make quite a few mistakes before I learned a damn thing.
Thank you for this wonderful article.
