I found this excellent bit of advice at I post it here because this morning it says a lot to me. ;-)

“Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option” - Kelly Angard

Yeah cause if you make your world revolve around someone who treats you like a disposable object-- that's broken hearts ville.

Possibly relevant:
I did a lot of urban ministry trips in college. We'd visit inner city shelters & help with the meal services, donations, etc.
SO many of the abused women have the names of the boyfriend/husband whatever tattoed on their body.

And y' just KNOW so many of 'em will go running back.

Wise words, indeed.

I've experienced quite a few lopsided relationships (romantic and otherwise) in my time. Never again.

From here on, it's just myself and I. Me and me. Us. We. We've known each other for as long as either of us can remember, and we get along just fine.

Matter of fact, we're living proof that two can live as cheaply as one.

You probably won't believe this, but we're both writing this note together.

Oh@ Oh! Mr Kelly, I believe, I believe, I believe. . . .

Belief is easier and simpler than dis-belief!

Excelent advice indeed.

You see this way too much in the job market as well as relationships. I lived that way for 30 years. Now, I know better and hope to save a few others along the way.

Excellent advice. Sort of a variant of the told adage that you should never negotiate from a position of weakness.
