We Accept the [blank] We Think We Deserve

This is a popular quote from the book “Perks of Being a Wallflower”, and to this day I think that it is the truest piece of knowledge I have ever heard. In the text, the quote is known as “We accept the love we think we deserve”, but I think that it can be applicable with just about anything.

Too often we see people settling for less than what they want, and less than what they deserve. I find myself making excuses for why I settle for certain things.

There’s no need to be dramatic about it all, but let’s all just stop settling for things when we deserve better! It sounds so simple, but in reality it’s so easy to make excuses for ourselves. Self-worth needs to be put higher on everyone’s priority list, including my own.

So let’s all just get a grip, and remember how awesome we are; And if you have had a tough week- just splurge a little on the stupid soup, or shoes, or whatever.
