I Will Not Settle Again

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 59 People

    Lesson Learned

    I did it once. I married him. I'll never do it again. I didn't know any better back then. I thought this was what love was. He loved me, and in my mind, he was the only one who ever would, so I had to marry him. Who else could possibly want me. I locked him in. I didn't...

    Settle? That's What Food Does In Transit!

    I am not potato chips at the bottom of a bag, I am a beautiful woman with a myriad of hopes and wishes. My partner should want me to get them, in turn I want them to get their wishes. Nobody ever should "settle for second best" either.
