Don't Suffer Needlessly
Misery loves company. Don’t let the struggle of someone who’s miserable become your burden.
Hurt people hurt people. Don't let someone else's pain be the cause of your suffering because they refuse to forgive. Let go and be free.
If someone is not treating you with love and respect, it is a gift if they walk away from you. If that person doesn't walk away, you will surely endure many years of suffering with him or her.
Walking away may hurt for a while, but your heart will eventually heal. Then you can choose what you really want.
You will find that you don't need to trust others as much as you need to trust yourself to make the right choices.—Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom
