When the person you truly care about has a different idea of life and different priorities, all you can do is respect his mindsets. What hurts is when he tries to force it unto you and put you down because he doesn’t think you can handle it. To avoid conflict, you choose to be quiet and let the other person win because you cherish the person more than your own ideologies.
That’s when you start to lose little bits of yourself in silence… you slowly forgot to love and respect yourself first, your pride fades as the day goes by, and your last bit of dignity is being shred and thrown away.
Before you knew it, you’re stuck. Stuck and dependent on the other person to give you an idea of what’s right and what’s important because you no longer have your own sentiments. Because your own ability to think for yourself is out the window.
If you realize this, wake up now! You can still save yourself. It’s not too late. Choice is yours to decide whether you wanna be happy or stay miserable with that person due to fear of losing him.
Ask yourself this question, if he really loves then why is he trying so hard to change you instead of using that effort to accept who you are and the way you are?
