I wish more women could see the value in themselves without feeling like they need a man to be complete. There is a sense of pride and fulfillment that comes with knowing you can stand on your own two feet without the support or help of a man. Too often I see women who have self-limiting beliefs. They don’t put enough faith in themselves or have the confidence to conquer things on their own. Far too many women believe they NEED a man to be happy. After my divorce I felt that way for many years, but I did not find true happiness until I realized I did not need anyone. I was perfectly capable of making myself happy and doing things on my own. I am a single mom in my 40’s and the happiest I have ever been in my life. I got here by working hard and taking on challenging tasks that provided a sense of accomplishment in knowing I DID THAT! I may not be able to do everything a man could help me with, I do know how to find the resources to assist me.
There is such an unexplainable feeling of pride that you get when you know you can do things on your own and you are happy with yourself and love yourself. Self-love is so important. If you don’t love yourself how can you expect anyone else to love you. Spend time alone and get to really know yourself. Discover your likes and your dislikes, what you are willing to put up with and what you aren’t. Become confident in who you are and what you have to offer and then you will be less likely to put up with anything less than you deserve.
