you’re not going to buy anyone’s love by giving them everything they ask of you. you are never going to develop deep meaningful friendships by being a pushover, because everyone around you is only concerned with what you can offer them. and the depressing reality is, no one cares if you’re nice. you’re not going to get some prize for having zero boundaries. people are just going to take what they want from you and leave. once you begin developing healthy boundaries you will start attracting the right people; people that care about you, people that you dont have to constantly bribe to stay, people that would stay by your side even if you had nothing to offer.
