But the one thing you should not do
is lose yourself.
There’s such a thing as toxic love
but we fail to teach our children about it.
Don’t stay for someone who knows only
how to tear you down. Who throws around words like
knives with you as the target.
Remember the child you used to be and
Learn to how to hold your own hand and
sleep alone. You’ve done it before,
you can do it again.
You are not weak for leaving.
Repeat that. Tattoo it into your heart.
Sometimes saying goodbye is
the strongest thing you can do.”—Tina Tran, Life Lessons #1 (via senpai00)
