I wrote this today for my inspirational site.
I recently heard this quote:
“In life, you’re going to be left out, talked about, lied to and used. But you have to decide who is worth your tears.” – Unknown
I considered other ways Unknown could’ve phrased it.
“… But you have to decide who will bring you down.”
“… But you have to decide who is worth losing sleep over.”
“But you have to decide who is worth sacrificing one more moment of your precious life allowing their thoughtlessness to negatively impact your health and peace of mind.”
Although more could’ve been said, the anonymous writer opted to leave the thought fairly open-ended, perhaps because the outcome *is* open-ended. People will let us down – as will other things in life – and then we have to decide where we take it from there.
