Nothing like snark on a Thursday morning!
But seriously, the more I learn about human nature, the more I realize that people treat us only in the way we allow them to. If someone mistreats you or uses you, you must demand respect. If they won't give it, you must walk away.
Easier said than done, sometimes, I know, especially if we're still clinging to the hope that the other person will grow up or change. Let that go. If they ever do, they may one day return to you wanting to make amends.
But don't count on it.
"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." --Eleanor Roosevelt
