You are not second best.

You are not a back-up plan. You are worth more than someone’s second choice. You can’t force yourself to stop caring for someone, but you can tell yourself that you deserve better. Never settle to be someone’s second best. Raise your standards and choose to be with somoene who will treat you with the same respect and consideration you would treat them. You can’t expect to be someone else’s priority if you aren’t your own.
