A strong man respects a woman who stands up for herself and gives as good as she gets. Only weak men name call and accuse women of having a mean streak when they don't just roll over and take the crap they dish out pretty much lol
When nobody else celebrates you, learn to celebrate yourself. When nobody else compliments you, then compliment yourself. It’s not up to other people to keep you encouraged. It’s up to you. Encouragement should come from the inside.
When thinking about life remember this: no amountof guilt can solve the past and no amount of anxiety can change the future . Amen to this. I struggle with the guilt from my past, and daily with the anxiety my future holds.
