In society today, I see a trend of people accepting less than they truly deserve and actually criticizing others for wanting more for themselves. Often they settle because of low personal self-esteem, insecurity, feeling damaged, or even out of fear of being alone. This behavior not only hurts the one doing the settling but ultimately hurts the one being settled for. This is wrong for everyone. We need to step back and evaluate ourselves. Ask ourselves why would we think so little of ourselves that we would be okay settling for something or someone we knew from the start wasn’t right for us. The important thing is to not ignore the red flags. If you see red flags in a situation be sure you are paying close attention to them and not just brushing them aside. We all have intuition we just rarely acknowledge it. If you are settling for a person in the end that person is and you will get hurt because one or both of you will eventually move on. Focus on your needs and be a little selfish as in the end you want to be with someone that wants you happy and you want them happy as well.
How do you think of weakness? Do you see it as debilitating? Or do you embrace it and learn from it to empower you? If you allow it to tear you down then it can truly become a handicap. You have to break down those weaknesses and analyze them. Find the core and tackle it at the roots. Our weaknesses can become our great strengths when we acknowledge them.
Wow is it ever so important to search and find that place in your life that makes you feel content and happy. That place that you can go to when things are not making sense in your life that you can just relax your mind and body to search for answers. It may be different places for different times. Don’t think you can only have one “Happy Place!” It is perfectly fine to have a few that each individually inspires you in different ways. Be sure you are opening your heart and your mind when searching for that “perfect” place for YOU. If you only search with your eyes you may miss what you are truly searching for.
This is for all my single readers primarily. Do you often hear the phrase, “Age is just a number” when meeting new people in the dating arena? I think about these 6 words quite often as I don’t agree that is is just a number. Now do I believe it is a make or break in a potential partner? Absolutely not! There is someone for everyone and every situation in our lives for sure. However, if you are very accomplished and have your share of experience you may look for a partner with similar experience. Well often, not always, with every day of age comes a day of experience right? So if you try to say that age is just a number then you are discounting the importance of the experiences that are acquire with every day you are alive! Myself, I appreciate every experience I am given and consider them a badge of honor that I either enjoyed them or even survived them. Never discount what you have learned with every day you are alive and continue to go out there and push yourself further and further to achieve so much more!!
