Who’s keeping you in check? Who’s calling you out when you’re settling? Who’s giving you the push you need when you feel like giving up? Who’s loving on you and acknowledging you when they see you grow?
For most of my life, I was this person in all of my relationships. And trust me when I say, I loved how much value I knew I held because of it. But when it was my turn, when I needed some tough love, when I needed some motivation, when I could have used a little acknowledgement, these relationships were no where to be found. I thinks what’s even worse is that, many of these relationships were secretly afraid of me changing, so if I stayed stuck, I couldn’t out grow them. Can you relate?
When I first met Brad, I truly realized what unconditional love and support meant. Because of the example he set for me, it was easy for me to recognize the relationships that were taking from me more than they were giving. I decided in that moment that I would rather have one solid relationship that I knew would help me grow into the woman I aspired to be, than have several relationships that kept me small & held me back.
So, I broke up with them, & I spent the better part of a year having no friends. Was it easy? No, I cried and felt lonely A LOT, but still, I was convinced that I would rather be alone than to continue settling.
As I continued practicing this habit of choosing myself over the past few years, I started attracting people who respected me, who appreciated me and who supported me, simply because they see me doing that for myself.
So my question for you is, if you’re looking for relationships that will serve and support you, then it’s time to take responsibility in what you’re settling for. It’s also time to check in with how you’re teaching your family, friends and significant others to treat you by how you treat yourself.
But most importantly, it’s time for you to start showing up & being that person for you 💯 comment “AMEN” if you needed this reminder 👇🏼
Your hungry kisses are all that makes me wild.
Your hands rushing through my body and tearing my clothes down.
Your kisses tracing my neck while my body screams for more.
Pulling my hair and whispering to my ear,
baby I want you now,
I want you each day,
piece by piece,
with your every touch and kiss.
