It’s been more than a week since I last updated my blog once again and I know that it’s a pathetic and lame excuse to use the term”Life Got in the Way” once again but hey, I guess it holds true for me for the time being with so many things running across my mind right now and trying to device a way on how to balance everything out. I think I have been doing such a bad job lately neglecting some things which apparently should be part of my pressing priorities and just attending to them a tad bit too late which leads me to cram and procrastinate most of the time. Such a bad habit indeed! But, I’m trying to change that already. It’s just that maybe sometimes there are days wherein you don’t feel motivated or compelled to do anything significant. Nothing wrong about that but then again, there are priorities too that needs attending.
If only dreams do come true and I had more time wherein I can whimsically be whisked off to a remote island and just breathe and relax and take my time to reflect on everything before starting out fresh once again and ready for the upcoming hurdles along the way.
So before I run off course again and veer away from the topic, I came across this article from ThoughtCatalog here’s the link for your perusal and leisurely read. It reminds us women to “Know Our Worth” and to “Never Settle for Less than what We Deserve”
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
I once thought love was easy as one-two-three. Popular culture dictates that if you want a man, you gotta plan. Gone are the days when guys would do everything just to prove to you that you are worth the world to them. Today, all it takes is a simple “I luv u ;)” over chat or text for them to get your sweet “Yes!”
Sad to say, some boys will take you for granted. They think they can have us easily or that there is no problem with juggling two or more girls at a time.
While the blame falls on them, it’s also partly our fault. Some girls are content with allowing boys to go through the easy way. Of course, how can you say no when your crush finally notices you? How can you deny love’s knock on the door, even if he’s not just knocking at yours? We allow them to enter our lives so easily. We think that if we make things hard, he’ll go away and see someone else. And we don’t want that.
But girl, know this: you are worth it.
The right guy won’t settle for the easy path. He works hard he knows you are a master piece. He will respect you, your body, and your demands. He doesn’t just use his feelings; he thinks with his brain. The right man will not look at other women for comfort; he will prove to you that you are enough.
Girl, never think that you’re not worth the chase. If a man really loves you, he will do what is right. Even if things don’t seem to agree his way, he will use his brains and be ready to face whatever comes his way.
Don’t be afraid to raise your standards. Never stoop down to their level just to get their attention. If a guy easily gives up, then he is not worth it. But worry not, be confident that the Lord has you. Just be sure to obey His word and the people around you.
When a guy works hard for you, he will definitely value you more. Because he poured all blood, tears, and sweat, it’s enough proof that he really wants to win you over.
I guess in this day and age and especially with the proliferation of all the Online Dating Sites and Apps sometimes women settle for less than what they deserve and instead give up their values and their other hobbies or their careers and lose track of who they were from the get go. Ladies, never lose yourself in a relationship, if he wants you bad enough and he’s dead serious about you, he will wait and take pains to make an effort just because you are worth it. Now if he leaves and just packs up his bags and goes then I guess it’s not your loss but his. At least you get to know who the quality ones are from those guys who are just out there to have a good time.
Happy Reading! :))
