I saw this quote in a group post on Facebook, and it really resonated with me:
"YOU WERE NEVER HARD TO LOVE. YOU WERE JUST GETTING HARDER TO MANIPULATE." - @love bombed_md
I believe my subconscious mind was aware of it somewhat, but my conscious mind never really registered it, until now. I was "never hard to love"..."just getting harder to manipule..."
What an extraordinary realisation and an immense feeling of freedom.
I am loveable and capable of loving and being loved. But I am much smarter at who I love and whom I allow to love me.
