“As for looks? I’m nothing special, but I’m told I have beautiful eyes. Eyes from which nothing but truth could possibly seep. They say the sea is actually black and that it merely reflects the blue sky above. So it was with me. I allowed you to admire yourself in my eyes. I provided a service. I listened and listened. You stored yourself in me.”

– Diary of an Oxygen Thief by Anonymous
The imagery and the wording of this quote are just so beautiful. I haven’t gotten through the whole book, but I fell in love with the first page. Definitely recommend it! 

Why do we settle for less but tell others not to? Why do we uphold other people’s value but undervalue our own? I just don’t get how we can tell someone else to value themselves when we don’t even do it ourselves. We settle for less and get manipulated all the time and yet we tend to spread positivity for self worth.
