It doesn't matter if HE gets it - it matters if I get it. Why would I expect someone else to care about what I am sacrificing, when I think so little of myself.

I was the QUEEN of martyrs. I like what my therapist told me early on: no one appreciates a martyr while they're alive. Screw that! LOL

Today is a new day to start again, sketscher. Learning to love myself enough to know I deserved better has been a great gift.
