The hard truth is that it’s your responsibility to make sure you’re getting want you want out of your relationships. If you want commitment, exclusivity, or intimacy that goes beyond the sheets, it’s on you to make that happen, not the other person. It isn’t fair to shame someone for not wanting what you want out of life or out of that interaction.
It’s time we alter our internal narratives and stop believing our worth is tied to our relationship statuses. In addition to that, we owe it to ourselves and other women to remind those that unknowingly encourage this mindset that doing so is damaging, as unintentional as it might be.
