If you want me in your life, put me there. I shouldn't be fighting for a spot. If I am important enough that you want me to be a part of your life then I should be enough of a priority that you make room for me and want me around. If I have to fight or compete for your attention and a place in your life then the truth is that I am not really that important to you, and I deserve better than this. You determine who takes part in your life, and when someone or something is important than you will create a spot. If I have to compete just to gain your attention and get a few minutes of your time then you do not truly want me to be a part of your life. Someone who makes you second place or puts you last every time does not deserve you, and they are not someone who truly cares about you.
