Self Worth: Never Settle in Love
Ladies, Know Your Self-Worth.
It's hard to understand your self-worth in a world that consistently demands you settle. We don't make demands freely when it comes to love and who we allow into our space. Why not? Typically, making a demand only involves crisis situations…Demand $100 million dollars be wired to a secured Swiss account. Snatch a kid in South America then demand the family drop a bag of money at the train station by noon. Or take over a plane with a few Americans on board! However, PLEASE don't demand a man be absolutely incredible before he can get to second base, that somehow is wholeheartedly unreasonable. Right?
You meet a great guy. He's perfect. Except for just a few things, he’s 39 and still has roommates. He has his law degree yet, somehow, he hasn't taken the bar and doesn’t have his license. Oh, and there's always that one guy you were crazy about. Except he's started 123,098 businesses which have ALL failed and now he needs you to believe in him, one more time! He also needs you to be his newest investor. Maybe Jim, yeah, Jim is gorgeous but he's married yet says you're the one. If you can just look past the fact he has a wife, three kids, a mortgage and two car notes…because he's definitely worth sticking around for. (Pause, lemme take a sip of my boxed wine!)
Knowing how amazing you are and how much value you bring to the table is the first step to eliminating losers from your life. You are not the moon, you are the sun; you make your own light. Only allow men into your space that - from the jump - aren't a waste of time. Ensure everyone in your life fits the criteria of being worthy of you and all of your incredibleness. (Is that a word? Who cares.)
Get a plan, get ahead, and put yourself first when it comes to love. Self-worth is self-love.
