That girl in his Instagram pictures could’ve been you. Should’ve been you. You’ll stare at her for as long as your damaged ego can take, trying to figure out why he thinks she’s more attractive than you.
You have to fall in love with yourself, first and foremost. You need to be whole on your own. Don’t purposely leave yourself incomplete, naively believing that someone else is meant to fill in your blank spaces.
The Proverbs 31 woman is the kind of woman who loves people to their very bones; she loves like Jesus.
It’s funny how much an animal can teach us about love.
So please, be the girl who still believes in love even after everything she has been through. After the pain and hurt you’ve felt and suffered, still love with all your heart when love presents itself to you again.
As far as we’ve come, people today are still confused if a woman is not married and beginning to start her family during her peak fertility years. We think we should be worried about her, and her life choices, and her happiness. Sure, women can work and have careers – but only if they are also mothers and wives, of course.
I can’t wait to get to know you without your make-up on – the real you – no façade. I can’t wait to get to know you without your make-up on – because that’s when you’re most beautiful to me.
“I just wish she’d take control sometimes. I know she likes to be dominated, but it’s so hot when women just take control and lead the way it takes some of the pressure off us.”
There is a whole life to live outside doing things for others. I promise you life will continue if you start putting yourself first, just like I promise you the sun will continue to rise and set every day and every night without you guiding it.
I want you to remember our love when you’re out in the world pursuing this brave new world you’re seeking and I’ll remember you when I’m making a home in mine because part of you will always live in me.
