And who better you know than your own self? I admire myself for the courage I had to continue with my life when I didn’t feel like, I admire myself for the kind of patience and love I have poured in relationship without some or no reciprocation, I admire myself for picking myself up when I was broken into zillion pieces after facing personal and professional set backs, I admire myself for fighting many silent battles and being able to calm myself when I was hell restless.

I wish I could exit from relationships as easily and swiftly as I could handle other things.
