Somewhere along many Tumblr posts, tweets, Instagram captions and Pinterest pins, I came across an interesting (yet cliched) quote. You’ve probably seen this one before. Maybe you’ve even posted it. But the quote inspired me to start thinking like a philosopher who’s trying to find the meaning of life.
Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you or makes you happy.
— Robert Tew
The quote is so simple, and makes so much sense. Yet, every time I see it, I tend to have such a difficult time grasping the concept. Why is self-respect so difficult to achieve? If we know someone or something is hurting us, why do we have such a hard time letting go? Why do we sometimes settle for pain, instead of setting out on a hunt for something better?
