“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. -Proverbs 4:23
Dating, falling in love, marriage. Three words that personally make me shake in my boots. The reason being, is that it means opening myself up again to another person and potentially facing rejection, or worse, getting hurt again. Now here is a solution to this particular fear that’s helped me. Be smart and know your worth, don’t settle. My mom always used to say “don’t put all your eggs in one basket”, boy do I wish i would have listen more.
Don’t give a man you are just “crushing” or “dating” everything a husband is supposed to have. I know this has been said before but it could not be any more accurate. I am not just talking about physically. I mean emotionally as well, & just giving way to much of yourself up for a maybe husband, or but he has potential and he loves me. I myself was this girl then reality hit me. If I wanted a good man to marry me I was not going to get him that way. I also know so many wonderful women who are doing this. Lovely ladies your body is a temple, your mind and heart are things to be cherished and I defiantly feel that is how you tell the men from the boys. The thing is there are just to many women out there willing to do anything. So set yourself apart and be a women with morals and standards she is not willing to just give up. Stand firm and believe in what you are standing for. It was once said if you stand for nothing you will fall for anything. Could not be more true. Don’t settle for anything less than what you deserve. A good man will know this and respect it. If he does not and leaves, let him. Do not think for one second there is not a man out there willing to do it. There is. You just have to think about this… You attract what you are, you are treated the way you carry yourself. And most of all a good man will be found doing good things. So yes, be good, do good and you will attract a good guy. Have respect for not only yourself but your body. I feel this would defiantly help in weeding out all the bad guys and open up your life to more of the actual husband material men.
Its not a bad things to just wait and be patient and let God do his thing. Its hard, believe you me I know. Just know he has created one man just for you but how is that man going to find you if your busy wasting your time on an imposter dressed in a prince’s armor? So realizing and reminding yourself that you are worth the wait is important. Your are unique and beautiful. Your are a prize to be cherished. Good men do exist and he is willing to honor, respect and treasure you, so I too will say this and know that falling in love is truly a beautiful thing and something we were created to do. But be smart and careful of who your heart to.
