Settle For Less

"We accept the love we think we deserve" -  Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being Wallflower.
   And we left with settling for everything less than we deserve nowadays because all of us want to be in love but only a few understand that 'word'. Some are confused it with loneliness. And how the idea of being alone and lonely petrified us, till we allow our loneliness to lower our standards. We allow ourselves to be taken for granted and to belittled and feel less than human. And the funny part is, how we are so determined to be in a relationship that is toxic, self-degrading which makes us feel as if we would never be good enough for that person. And the sad thing is we let this relationship continue because we think we deserve that.

  And funny how when thing ends, we comfort ourselves with "you deserve someone much better than that" when it's all about our choice at the first place. We are so caught up with these kinds of life. And we don't even know what we deserve, maybe that's why we always settle for less, convenience and mediocre. I was once a wanderer but I guess now I just know where I'm heading.
“The biggest human temptation is to settle for too little.” - Thomas Merton
