Don’t ever participate in belittling yourself to make others feel comfortable with you. It’s better to stand strong and suffer rejection.
It is a terrible thing to under-rate oneself. It opens one up for exploitation. It gets to a point where others see in you what you don’t see in yourself.
Never live under the threat of someone exiting your life. There is so much God has in store for you that your mind can’t comprehend. When they walk, you will see the future much clearer.
