“You’re feeling very sensitive to the problems of other people — your empathy is high, and your thoughts could be distracted by worry. This is not a comfortable feeling, and this level of compassion for others might not be too healthy for you. You’ve been putting the needs and wishes of other people over your own for too long, and you need to work harder to find balance. You deserve to think of yourself first once in a while. Don’t concern yourself with the problems of others.”
Maybe it’s right. For a long time I've shown my “Superwoman” personality. Now I’ve come to realize that even superheroes do get hurt sometimes.
I put the needs of other people above my own. I let my own happiness pass by cos I thought I’d be happier by helping someone in need, by supporting him all the way and providing everything even without him asking for it. For a time it was fulfilling, I realized my worth as a person as well as a significant other. That I could make a change in a person’s life.
But when reality punched me so hard, my world turned upside down. I thought I made a mistake. I did the improper by giving everything to the wrong person. He’s not worth my sufferings, my sacrifices and my tears.. yet after some time it came to me that there is nothing to regret.
Everything I did came out of love. I should not blame myself for giving him the whole universe. Instead, I should applaud myself for showing people what true love means.
By knowing what true love is, I should then learn to love myself from now on.
