When you get used to being on your own, you don’t try to fill the void with fake romance or empty relationships because you’re already filling it with other activities. So you don’t really run the risk of breaking your own heart by settling or being with someone who is not right for you just because you don’t want to be alone.
A man is not a financial plan. If you were raised looking for Prince Charming to swoop in and take care of you, then you are setting yourself up for a lot of financial frustration and failure.
You’re over the games, you’ve dealt with being alone and you’ve experienced love followed by heartbreak. You know what you want and that shouldn’t be your fault.
Wait for a relationship that is filled with goodness but that is completely imperfect – so that you can understand and experience how much better love is when it’s real and human as opposed to perfect and flawless.
You are loved, even when you do not love Him. Loved, even when you feel you are alone and forgotten. Loved, even, and especially when you are broken.
