Am I Settling?..

You know you're settling when you have to ask yourself if you are, I know you don't want to believe it, I didn't either.

Listen to your gut. Don't let it become overthrowed by your heart/mind, or your 'feelings' or the little things he does/ says that makes you smile. Trust me. I didn't want to believe this either. Be a Diva. If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away, if he doesn't want you nothing can make him stay. Don't compromise your values, even if you think they're only little. If you don't stand for that little thing, you'll fall for every big thing. I know, you feel like you're still not sure. I did too. No one is perfect, so stop your search for the perfect man. Rather, raise the bar to a standard that you feel completely content with. If you want the best, be the best. Let him compliment your shine. Know your worth, if God bought you for a price, how can you allow yourself to depreciate because of a man. You, stand up for you. It's easier said than done but it's easier done now than later. You will have your heart hurt and your arms empty, but these are symptoms of a Diva who regains poise and confidence and let's the right person enter her life, instead of going to find him. There will be a happily ever after, trust me, as said before, big problems now, look so small after a few months, so let it go. Let it fly, let it run wild. Let it teach you lessons about yourself and love. Grow. Get more mature and responsible and love yourself more than anyone else in your life. When you accept his unconstructive critiscism the first time, he accepts that it's ok for him to say. But it's like you don't know what to say the first time, right? Yeah, I know. But when you regain your senses, become the diva that you know you are and nip it in the bud. Even if you have to use those words. Nip. It. In. The. Bud. I am a Diva, of great worth. I am precious, so if your critiscism isn't to build me up then your criticism should not exist. Simple. When you fall over, you get embarassed, but you pick yourself up, embarassed and all. So, when you fall in love, and you've given of yourself, be it mentally, physically, emotionally, or your time, and it's time to pick yourself up, don't think that you can do it without feeling embarassed or exposed or incomplete, it's inevitable, but lasts a short while. He isn't the last, although he may even be the first, at least now you have more understanding of what you don't want. Listen. Listen to words of those who have had experience. You owe him nothing, as he owes you nothing. You decide. You choose who you give of yourself. Live. Laugh. Love. Never settle for anything less than butterflies.

:) Much Love, Growth, Beauty & Joy!
