Read This If You Feel Like You’re Settling For Less

Ariel Lustre

Who the hell told you that you don’t deserve a good relationship because you’re still stuck in a rut and figuring things out in your life? Well, let me tell you something: do not believe them.

Just because you’re still stuck in college,

or you’re still finishing your way out of the career you really don’t like,

or you’re still the lost soul you were two years ago,

or you’re still caught up in the memories of your past,

or you haven’t still discover that winning confidence in you,

or whatever mess you think you are,

that doesn’t mean you don’t have the right to up your game.

Relationships aren’t supposed to be about fame, money, or magazine-good looks. Relationships aren’t supposed to be about the superficial things in life. Don’t get me wrong, those are really great bonuses. But we all know that sometimes those “essentials” do not help at all.

It doesn’t matter if you feel like you are far behind in life. As long as you know how massive authenticity, loyalty, honesty, and sincerity you can bring to the table, you deserve all the best of love and happiness in the world.

Do not get blinded and consumed by thinking you deserve less because of where you are in life.

You deserve someone who can match the goodness of your intentions. You deserve someone who you can grow out the mess you think you’re in.

No matter where you are in life, you deserve to be treated like the blossoming Queen or King that you are.

Embrace the messy phase you’re in. Burn it with your soul’s fire. Make it as a fuel to fulfill more of your heart’s deepest desires. Stop settling and start having high standards. Wave those standards at those people who try to bring you down. And then, smile. TC mark
