Sometimes people are the most interesting creatures on the planet, and the rest of the time they’re the most frustratingly complicated. They’d like the liberty, but when you give them the liberty to be happy, to be genuinely happy, they take it as if they’ve done something wrong to get there. It seems to happen more times than I can count, people sabotaging their own lives. Turning down a long-standing crush that asks you out at your locker just because you think that “they can do better”, or breaking off a relationship because you don’t deserve someone that treats you with as if you have worth. I can’t seem to wrap my mind around why people don’t think they deserve anything that comes their way, good or bad, and both seem to hit the extremes. It seems to be worth more just view everything as positively as you can, without sabotaging your life. The memory of what you could have had isn’t worth the pain you think you deserve. Believe me, I’ve been there too, but I still haven’t a clue. Can any of you think of why? Think about it the next time you turn down a lunch date, or more.
