Here I am on a Friday night, & always feeI inspired to write late. I have many journals!
My thoughts...on a topic I rarely discuss.
I have to admit, I've been treated poorly by many guys throughout my dating career. And yet, I've dated a lot of great guys too. Probably missed opportunities that I could dwell on to keep me up at night. But for the most part, BIG EGOS out there.
I'll never forget being told "you probably get told your pretty all the time" (an excuse for not giving a compliment) which is NONSENSE. Who cares if I do or don't? Doesn't everyone deserve a compliment from someone they are dating?
Regardless of such a shallow comment (these type of guys are not worth your time), I appreciate the many guys who have been kind.
I'm no expert on giving dating advice, but I think the best advice I would give, is to follow ur INTUITION-amid all the opinions and judgements out there of who is right for you. This is something I've had to work on because in order to do that, it's important to know what u want, what u need, & where u are heading in life. Don't wait for the perfect guy, & don't wait for someone to solve ur problems either.
Above ALL of that, don't rely on social media like we do from time to time, to only leave you feeling BROKEN, as if you're missing something in life. There seem to be many happy couples out there with the perfect SOCIAL MEDIA relationships. If you're like me, you can be hard on yourself. I have waited to be "IN ❤️" again for a long time, yet have avoided it due to being scared it wouldn't work out, or fear of being with the wrong person.
You know what I think?...it's our CHOICE.
Don't wait on someone to make you happy. Find your passion, go after it, chase your dreams, and above anything...Do NOT let guys get in the way of your SELF-WORTH. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It's hard, but you have to keep moving forward. Be with someone who makes you feel happy, loved, cared for, & believes in YOU.
LOVE does exist. There is no room for fear or jealousy. We have the CHOICE to LOVE
