Woman to Woman: Stop Settling…

October 8, 2011  |  

Darlings, who told you that you weren’t good enough for the best? Who said you should accept mediocrity and be happy with it? Was it you?

Ladies, lets’ stop settling for the things we know we don’t deserve. There are too many of us who are scared to speak up and demand that we get treated better because we are battling with our own insecurities and shortcomings. It’s so easy to accept something rather than to try and change it – but you can’t fall victim to this easy way out. Stop being afraid to be alone; stop assuming that you wont’ find anyone else; stop allowing your so-called physical flaws or current circumstances to hold you back from receiving what you deserve. The reason why so many women settle is because they feel as if they don’t have any other options. Once you limit yourself to your immediate surroundings, you’ve automatically been defeated.

You should never put yourself or your feelings on the back burner for anyone. Don’t you think you deserve happiness like everyone else? The secret to not settling is being clear on what you want and not being afraid to demand it. If you don’t know what you want in a man or from a relationship, than you shouldn’t get involved with someone. Don’t try to figure it out as you go along because you will only end up hurt and confused. Even if you know what you want, what good is it if you don’t demand the respect to receive it? If you say you want to be loved and to be number one in somebody’s life, why are you sitting around waiting for a man to leave his “situation”? That doesn’t make sense right? Think about it – why settle for good when you can have great? Woman to Woman – stop settling.
