little talks

a place for my weekly baby rant

this week’s topic is : chances

sometimes we give people chances without them ever asking.

in one of my favorite movies, one of the main character’s husband is cheating on her. once he realizes she’s pulling away, he attempts to win her back. probably aware of her suspicions, his actions towards her begin to change. he brings her to dinners and paying close attention to her.

when her friends call her out for letting herself close to him and allowing him to reel her back in. she responds, ‘sometimes you need to forgive people in order to move forward.’ in which her friend responded, ‘but he didn’t ask you for forgiveness.’

we are taught to make ourselves small for others. a lot of the people closest to me, especially women, have been taught their entire lives to be someone – for someone else.
