The more chances you give someone the less respect they’ll start to have for you. They’ll begin to ignore the standards that you’ve set because they’ll know another chance will always be given. They’re not afraid to lose you because they know no matter what you won’t walk away. They get comfortable with depending on your forgiveness. Never let a person get comfortable disrespecting you. — Trent Shelton

Thank you, Gretchen, for sharing exactly what I was thinking. I know I was a “people pleaser” all my life, but now I please myself FIRST!
And when you doubt your self worth, do you wonder what was the “precipitating event”? Or, was it a series of events, several disappointments, several whuppings, several broken promises. And you kept letting them happen. To turn back the time, to hug up the little girl, to be there, to call when you said you would, what a difference it would have made.
Every obstacle became an opportunity to learn something.
