This book is for all the single men and women who have experienced a series of failed relationships, have not had great luck when it comes to dating, and need some eye-opening, brutally honest advice so that their next relationship…
Thousands of versions of me have littered the passage of my life as I shed skin after skin, lesson after lesson to become the person I honestly can say I am proud of.
External validation feels great and makes us feel worthy and important. Finding validation in yourself is way harder. But when you don’t rely on external factors for value, you are more prepared for life: failure, love, loss, true joy and happiness, and the in-between.
When you start to identify yourself as someone less than who you are is when you need to walk away. When manipulation becomes more harmful than harmless is when you need to stand up.
We sometimes perceive asking for help as a sign of weakness, when it fact it’s the complete opposite. Asking for help is a sign of wanting to improve yourself and being wise enough to know you can’t always do it alone.
Stop apologizing for the person you are.
You are no one’s second choice.
But it is how you handle the downs, that will define who you are. You can be a victim, or you can choose to be a survivor. You can give up, or you can give it your all. You can be defeated, or you can RISE.

I wish you could hear the certainty in my words when I say with unyielding conviction that I love you.
