Being Aware of When to Take a Step Back (Letter to Me)

Dear Jennifer,

This is an open letter to you and to your audience to read your very thoughts in this moment in time.

Take a moment to re-evaluate everything that has been going on in your life. You have been fighting an internal battle with your lifelong goals. It’s been a great week so far. Don’t stop. All you’re doing right now is for you.

Take a step back from the helping hand you’ve so freely given to others especially those who don’t value you. They can say they value you but talk is cheap sometimes. Using words to affirm someone for their own benefit will only cause unnecessary and unwanted frustrations.

I know you have an open mind, an open heart and you speak as you please but there are just some people in this world who don’t deserve to hear your reasoning. There are people in this world who don’t deserve the advice and or help they ask for. Sometimes you just have to say “okay” and just let it be.

Taking a step back to let others realize what they’ve taken for granted is a great lesson. Maybe they’ll learn from it. Maybe they’ll talk shit. Maybe they’ll try to tarnish your reputation. No matter what, at the end of the day, you do you for you. It’s a salty world but do yourself a favor and stay sweet.

Your heart is pure and your being is genuine. I’m excited for you. It’s one step back and another step in a different direction: this is your time.

Love yourself as much as the love you give,

Relatable + Empathetic (2019)
