You don’t listen to her, you don’t care how it hurts, when you lose the one you wanted cuz he’s taken you for granted…
Oh, I’m sorry. I forgot. I only exist when you need something.
I was born to be the other woman.
Who belonged to no one,
who belonged to everyone,
who had nothing,
who wanted everything.
“I don’t have a choice, but I’d still choose you.”
-Poison & Wine, The Civil Wars
When someone treats you like you’re just one of many options, help them narrow their choice by removing yourself from the equation. Sometimes you have to try not to care, no matter how much you do. Because sometimes you can mean almost nothing to someone who means so much to you. It’s not pride, it’s self-respect. Don’t expect to see positive changes in your life if you surround yourself with negative people. Don’t give part-time people a full-time position in your life. Know your value and what you have to offer, and never settle for less than what you deserve.
“I don’t know how it is you are so familiar to me- or why it feels less like I am getting to know you and more as though I am remembering who you are. How every smile, every whisper brings me closer to the impossible conclusion that I have known you before, I have loved you before- in another time, a different- some other existence.”
