It is a gift if they walk away from you.

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.

  13. Powerful! Unfortunately this applies to a daughter that continues to treat once close family members with no respect or love since she has found a new boyfriend that she plans to marry. She’s a grown woman with 3 children of her own. Hurtful for sure but better off instead of walking on pins and needles around her all the time and being hurt.

  14. I have never been on this website until today. Low and behold, the quote of the day really spoke to me. My husband of 7 years decided he wanted a divorce. I live him dearly & wish with every fiber in my body that it could work between us. I’ve had enough. Cheating,chat lines & dating websites. I found out & now I get treated like crap. He will NEVER change & I know in the end I will be better off. I’m going to keep moving forward in life & if it’s meant to be…he’ll catch up! Bless all of you going through trials & tribulations.

  15. This is only a thought ; i feel that if i love and respect myself i don’t need to take from others i don’t need or want anything therefore i won’t experience sorrow . I always have a choice ;i am a creator of my life , i am a master .Sending you all acres of good wishes and lots of love and light
