“You Deserve Better”
The only way forward is with courage...the courage to move forward ALONE....and to decide that you would rather be alone than repeat unhealthy patterns, because that decision is ultimately a gift to yourself, a chance at finding something truly beautiful, and meaningful, something you are deserving of.
