Hey guys! Welcome back. As you can probably tell by the title, there is something I need to say. It has been on my mind a lot these past several days and I wanted to share it with you. My hope is that it will help some of you. Maybe it will inspire you or give you hope. Regardless of what it is I want you to hopefully take something away from reading this. If you read my weekly recap yesterday, you know that I now have a boyfriend. And even though it is fairly new and I haven’t shared much about him, I have something that I really want to share with you.
If you have been around for a while you know that several months ago I was in a relationship. I was with a person I had planned to marry. We were engaged, we had started planning the wedding, and I thought everything was going to work out. But as time went on and things started to come out I knew in my heart and in my gut that I couldn’t be with that person forever. I knew I deserved more and I knew that if I stayed in the relationship I would be settling for something I didn’t want and I didn’t need.
But now being here in a new relationship I realize how bad it would have been if I had stayed with that person. I realize how unhappy I would have been. I also realize how I would have missed out on ever knowing what real love feels like. This is the kind of relationship that was worth waiting for. This is the kind of relationship that is worth all of the bad first dates, terrible relationships, and break ups.
So I guess what I’m trying to say is don’t settle. And I know you probably hear it all the time because I did. But now I know why we shouldn’t settle. You shouldn’t settle for someone who doesn’t make you feel special. You shouldn’t be with someone who you aren’t completely happy with. You should be with someone who knows your worth and continues to remind you of it everyday.
No love is perfect. No relationship is perfect. No person is perfect. But the right person, the one you are truly meant to be with, will make it worth it. The right person will go through the bad times with you and you will come out the other side knowing it was worth it and that you still love that person. Don’t settle for someone who does things you don’t like or a person you can’t trust. Because you deserve so much more than that. You deserve someone who treats you the way you deserve to be treated. So don’t settle for anything less than that.
Life is too short to spend it with someone who doesn’t make you happy. Be with someone who let’s you be you and who you feel comfortable with. It won’t always be easy, but with the right person it will always be worth it. Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did.
