Don´t feel guilty for choosing yourself because it’s one of the hardest things a person can do. We’re so used to staying in places we’re not comfortable with or appreciated in, that when we do choose to leave those behind, there is a guilt that follows us in our departure.
However, knowing your worth isn’t anything to feel guilty about. It should be one of the proudest moments of your life and no one should be able to take that away from you. If anybody is making you feel guilty because you’re choosing yourself and walking away from something, don’t listen. Choosing to go with what feels right for you is nothing to be ashamed of and nobody, not even your own self-doubts should make you feel as if you don’t deserve to move on to something better.
Take ownership of who and what you allow in your life. There should be no place for people that make you feel bad for putting yourself first because at the end of the day, this is your life and if you’re not happy with it you can change it however you want. You don’t owe anybody anything, not an explanation not even a clarification. Follow your gut and block out the noise coming from those that don’t have your best interests at heart.
