Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy. If you aren't being treated with love and respect, check your price tag. Maybe you've marked yourself down. It's YOU who tells people what your worth is. Get off of the clearance rack and get behind the glass where they keep the valuables.

Pain makes you stronger. Tears make you braver. And heartbreak makes you wiser. So thank the past for a better future.
You deserve the very best. You don't need to 'put up' with anyone that doesn't truly love and respect you. It isn't always easy to know who the people are that are going to break your heart. But, each heartbreak is a lesson. 

The problem is, projecting your expectations onto people you love.... 
You love them, you would do anything for them, you are trustworthy, loyal and true and you expect the same from them. This may be unrealistic. You are simply projecting your expectations on them. BUT.. They are who they are. They will do what they do.   And if you think about it, it is not a surprise. You just didn't want to believe that they weren't the person you wanted them to be. When someone tells you or shows you who they are, believe them, you cannot change them. 

The other problem is, self-esteem..... 
If you love yourself, you would never tolerate anything less from another. You need to believe in yourself and what you have to offer. If someone doesn't appreciate all you are, that is not your issue. They have come into your life to teach you something. It may be to help you to realize your value, and that you are deserving of all the happiness in the world. 

“A heart given freely is the most vulnerable and selfless thing one can offer another human being. It can be as fragile and needy as a newly born infant, or as solid and self-supporting as a granite pillar, yet it is the hands of the recipient that determines its ultimate fate.” ―
