Not only did he betray your trust but at that very moment you should be realizing he doesn’t respect you. Once you make your mind up to stay you loose your self respect… This cycle will repeat until you get your self together and take back your self respect which was stolen from you. Yes, stolen because you wanted love or what you thought was love and let your guards down.
Sadly many will stay until they have only one smidget of respect left and with that they leave & it takes time to gain the confidence needed to pick yourself back up again. To grow consistently you have to leave the past alone and focus on your future only.
Don’t hurt yourself tryna hurt somebody else…
Many people will act out of hurt, pain, anger, and frustration. These emotions have no respect and they just randomly hurt innocent bystanders. You have to go somewhere away from others and heal. Cry because crying relieves pain. Write a letter to that person & don’t hold anything back! Your not going to allow anyone to see it, it’s just so you can relieve the pressure inside.
Whatever is killing you inside get it out, this type of stress is hard on the body & can eventually take you out! Talk to someone if that helps but don’t go crying all vulnerable into a situationship.🤦🏾♀️ Do not use your beautiful temple for payback! The biggest payback is staying yourself & growth, somebody gonna
