But I’m learning to let go.
!!! I NEEDED THIS. I love your art style, too. Can’t wait to read your book!!
I love your art and YOU HAVE A BOOK! And it’s so true about the whole “people love you because they love you” and it can get get pretty ugly when you forget that and you feel like you have to constantly convince people to not want to abandon you
yeah yeah yeah!! needed this :)))
THANK YOU for this! i really needed it
i try to get over people but i think that i always subconsciously believe that they’ll change, or that they’ll change their mind and as you probably already know they never do
i think we might be the same person
Thanks Maggie, your post helped me making a progress for my recent thoughts.
It depends on the person I would hang out with, but sometimes I also see a dog in the mirror. And I know it from my experience that being a dog to someone make the relationship stiff and not fun.
But at the same time, when I act like more catt-y- I mean, if I don’t feel like being with the person, I don’t, even if they seemed to like to be with me-, I felt myself as a bit jerky.
After I read your post, I realised that I also need others to let me go. As long as I won’t forget to respect them in an act, I won’t be a jerk.
