Unfortunately we’re surrounded by selfish, self-absorbed manipulators. Most of those don’t even love themselves, because they are incapable.
Instead of trying to persuade them that we’re efficient and deserve to be appreciated, quit it and be entirely convinced that you’re wonderful and in no need to attract them. They will see what you believe in yourself. ~ Rona SE
You can’t fix broken people. They can only fix themselves and even then only if they’re wise enough to see that they’re broken. ~ Nicole Mazza
