No Guy Is Worth Sacrificing Your Mental Health For, Because That's NOT Love


No Guy Is Worth Sacrificing Your Mental Health For, Because That's NOT Love

Admit it, you've probably done it...

You see a super cute guy, who you think is so perfect, everything about him is attractive. That is until he starts diminishing your self-worth, telling you what to do, dismissing your opinions, and the list goes on and on. You know you should leave the relationship, but you don't. You stay and let everything he does eat away at you because you know it's not OK for him to treat you this way and you know that this relationship is far from healthy. Yet time and time again you let yourself go through with it.

If you find yourself in a similar situation, you need to get out of there.

I'm sorry to say this but leave him. Leave him if he makes you feel any less than what you are. Leave him if he tries changing you. Leave him if he does anything that you don't like. He is not in charge of you. He is not in any way allowed to tell you what to do or who you are. You are so much more than this relationship and if he doesn't see how valuable you are, don't worry about him.

Leave him. It is not worth sacrificing your mental health over.

You deserve so much and if he can't give it to you, why stay? Why hurt your heart even more? It is not worth it. More importantly, he is not worth it. Losing who you are for a guy who only wants to change you is freaking crazy. If he doesn't love you the way you are, he doesn't really love you.

You may love him, but it's not worth losing yourself over.

These kinds of relationships do real damage to your mental health and that is not OK. Leave him.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

You don't just start as the person you are meant to be; there is a journey full of ups and downs that mold a person, so this is my journey.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.
