Beginning Anew


Lately, I've been doing a lot of thinking. And this quote
comes to mind: "We accept the love we think we deserve." 
(It might also be because I'm re-reading The
Perks of Being a Wallflower before the movie comes out.)

This whole summer thus far has been about being disappointed
in people and situations and I realized, if this is the love I am 
allowing myself to receive, then this is the love I feel I deserve.
But the truth is, I deserve so much more. As do we all. 

Instead of crying about moments that have happened recently 
or becoming increasingly angry over things I cannot change, 
I will rearrange my standards and realize I deserve a lot more
love than I have been receiving.

Close the chapter of past disappointments, learn from them,
and begin anew.
