And I think, you know, you get to a point in life where you start listening to yourself talk. How you rant, how you give in, and make excuses for another person’s behavior. You think it’s compassion instead of realizing there will never be a good enough excuse that justifies you being treated any less than what you deserve.
You start to hear yourself — really hear yourself.
And you start to find your own way out of the maze.
And it’s sad because you realize, in that moment, that it’s time to walk away.
