And although it may seem as if everything is falling apart, it isn’t! It just means that you are going through changes and that’s a good thing. And this time in your life could be a godsend for you. Maybe this time and this experience is here for you to reassess your priorities, help you figure out who you are and what you want out of life and for yourself.

And if you cannot love yourself, you cannot love anyone else. And people who cheat just do not have enough self-love to own their truths.
