On Being “Loved”

I saw this today and agreed with most of it, except for the line “Love yourself enough to hold the people who harm you accountable for their words and actions.” This could lead people down a dark road of retribution, seeking some kind of apology that will probably never come, dependent as it is on the offender having a conscience.  It’s more powerful to not care about the opinions of others so much that they are unable to hurt you.

Many believe that strength is thinking “I know they’re going to love me” but a greater strength is thinking “I’m okay if they don’t.”
