There is a new trend going around, especially on reality TV where relationships change as often as this crazy weather. And, there is little regard for marriage as a covenant. Yes, I am a Love and Hip Hop watcher. Although, I’ve attempted to kick this addiction, it’s holding on to me.
While chatting with a friend, it made me think about the time I found out that a guy I was dating was married. I was so apologetic, but his wife was so very rude at the end. How can you blame a woman you don’t know for the transgressions of the man you pledged to spend your life with? As naïve as I was, it hurt my feelings not that he was lying to me, but that as a woman, you could be more concerned about the woman’s accomplishments, to make sure that you “won.”
Since I’ve competed in pageants, held leadership positions, and founded my own companies, I have been very conscience of how I will be viewed by young girls. I have always wanted to act as a blueprint. I want my nieces and my future daughters to know that you have to know your worth. As a woman you need to remember these five things:
You are worth it. You are worth the love, the commitment, and the effort.
Trust your instincts. Your gut will never steer you wrong. But make sure your head is not making it all up!
Make sure that you are always working on you. Are you the best you?
The best relationship you can have is the one with God. This will constantly remind you that you are amazing, and help you get to know yourself better.
Have fun! Life is serious enough. Take time out to laugh.
