The Recovering Pessimist: You Deserve Better (Free Yourself) -- If people cannot accept all of you, you don't need to hold onto them. Cut them loose and move on. | www.therecoveringpessimist.me #amwriting #recoveringpessimist #optimisticpessimist Fantasia’s “Free Yourself” is one of my forever jams. There are two lines in the song that were a major life lesson for me:

“If you don’t want me, then don’t talk to me.”

“Go ahead and free yourself.”

Too often people hold on to people who serve them no positive purpose. I’ve been through this more times than I’d like to admit. You care about them and don’t want to end what you have with them. I tried over and over to make it work, just to have things fall apart again. I even went as far as to change parts of my personality to make things better for myself and others. That didn’t go well.

You can't choose the parts of a person that work for you. It's all or nothing. Click To Tweet

You deserve better than this.
