I posted this in the Divorce/Separation forum, but felt like I needed to post this for those who just found out as well.

I read this earlier and really felt like I needed to share it with all of you. In the beginning, I felt worthless and "what did I do wrong". This made me smile

"You don't need anyone's affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn't actually about you. It's about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don't have to internalize that. Your worth isn't contingent upon other people's acceptance of you - it's something inherent. You exist, and therefore, you matter, You're allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You're allowed to assert your needs and take up space. You're allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough. And you're allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise."

Everybody have a happy Sunday and remember that the person who abandoned you does not determine your worth.
