Oh sister, I feel you! First of all, your friend. So rude! And second of all, a very good wise friend of mine once told me — that I remember every word to this day — you teach people how to treat you by what you allow, what you stop, and what you reinforce. Really helped me with the one-sided people. You’re absolutely right. We should keep being kind! Starting to ourselves first :)

Thank you for this great piece, Jessica! ❤
