If you love him, don’t settle for a friendship with him.
If you want to really be with him, don’t be pretend that you are okay with being the other woman.
Don’t be the woman he hides with at a quiet little restaurant outside of town. Don’t be the woman he calls in the middle of the night when he’s up for some fun. Don’t be the woman he only texts when he’s bored. Don’t be the woman who would do literally anything to be with him. Don’t be the woman who settles for this kind of relationship.
Don’t make that mistake.
He is not the first, nor the last one on this planet.
And trust me, he is not even close enough to what you deserve.
I know exactly where you are now. I know women who have been in your shoes, fighting the same battle, going against themselves to win the love of a man who wasn’t capable of loving them. I’ve heard many stories. The patterns fit. The pain is exactly the same. And the men?
These men don’t change.
They don’t have what it takes to love you unconditionally until life sets you apart. They don’t know how to embrace you in a way that you crave to be embraced. They aren’t capable of being there for them the way a real man would.
So, how is this okay with you?
Why would you give up on finding real love and settle for someone who treats you like an option?
Why would you condemn yourself to a life of pain and misery?
You, my dear, deserve more than you think. You are not enough for this man. YOU are more than enough. You are a woman that a real man would do anything to have by his side. You give so much, and all you get in return are crumbs…
Stop settling for less.
You don’t have to wait for his message to cheer you up. You don’t have to depend on his call. You don’t have to neglect yourself for the sake of his needs. You don’t have to prioritize the man who doesn’t even want to hold your hand in public. You don’t have to sacrifice yourself for someone who only sees you as an option. You don’t have to waste your life hoping for a miracle that will never happen.
You deserve to feel love. You are worthy of your own life fairytale. And you don’t have to wait for anyone to give that to you. Let go of your fear of ending up alone and make that step.
You can be everything and you can do anything if you only stop settling for less.
