It’s a nice feeling to admit when you’re at fault. I just wish other people didn’t have that much of an ego to admit their mistakes too. 
In order to get respect from others, you first have to find it in yourself … to respect yourself.  Because as soon as you do, you’ll be able to find the courage to walk out of a situation where you’re being treated less than you deserve. You won’t even feel the need to demand for an apology, or an acceptance of the apology you’ve just asked. 
Not all friendships you’ve had for years are the way you thought they are…or, were. At one point you will realise that all this time you’ve felt so small around them. And that’s not good for you. You should feel grateful and thankful for everything but that doesn’t mean you have to settle. 
As that saying goes…NEVER SETTLE. And this doesn’t just apply in romantic relationships. It applies in all of them.
