Long drives make for lots of thinking.
Tonight on the way back from visiting a friend, I realized something. It’s both embarrassing and enlightening.
I value people — men, anyway — for the wrong reasons.
I value men who don’t value me.
I don’t value myself at all.
I deserve better.
If I want to have a healthy, happy relationship, I need to drop those men who use me, value the men who treat me well, not find value in men for stupid reasons (looks, money, charm), and value myself. A relationship is not a priority for me right now, but until I do these things I will never have one that works.
