10 best quotes on priorities and options in relationships

When someone treats you like you’re just one of many options, help them narrow their choice by removing yourself from the equation. Sometimes you have to try not to care, no matter how much you do. Because sometimes you can mean almost nothing to someone who means so much to you. It’s not pride – it’s self-respect.

Don't treat someone like a priority when they treat you like an option. - Marc Twain

If people treat you like an option, leave them like a choice.

I learned that who doesn’t look for you, doesn’t miss you and who doesn’t miss you doesn’t care for you… that destiny determines who enters your life but you decide who stays… that the truth hurts only once and a lie every time you remember it. There are three things in life that leave and never return: words, time and opportunities… therefore, value whoever values you and don’t treat as a priority whoever treats you as an option.

Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option. -Maya Angelou

The only person that deserves a special place in your life is someone that never made you feel like you were an option in theirs. -Shannon L. Alder

Staying in a situation where you're unappreciated isn't called loyalty; It's called breaking your own heart.

If you spend too long holding on to the one who treats you like an option, you'll miss finding the one who treats you like a priority.

You put all this effort into one person. You try so damn hard for them to love you as much as you love them. But the sick reality is they won’t ever love you. You won’t get the happy ending. You’ll keep trying and just get hurt no matter how hard you try because you’ll always be the second choice.

If they act like they can live without you, help them do it.
