Ladies, You Can Do Literally Whatever You Want And You Still Deserve Love

Listen ladies, I’m here to clear something up.

I am so sick and tired of all these articles telling me to ‘do this’ and ‘act like that’ in order to be worthy of love. Is anyone else just totally donezo with those? Because I am.

I am tired of pieces telling me I should put up with crappy male behavior, like not texting me back right away or walking away from our first date not being 100% sure whether he sees me as the future mother of his children. Like, HELLO?! Can you not see a good thing when it’s standing right in front of you? Because news flash: I am a good thing. I am the best thing that is ever going to happen to these subpar males.

And you know what, ladies? You are a good thing, too.

My fellow women, it’s time we got EMPOWERED.

No more pretending to reach for the check. No more worrying about what we can offer a man. You know what we have to offer? The PRIVILEGE of getting to date us. That’s right. Men are just lucky to be in our presence. We are just naturally nice and giving as women (also very, very misunderstood) which means we don’t have to put effort into the people we date – we are just naturally perfect at being girlfriends.

So it’s time we stopped settling for less than we deserve! Because the truth is, we deserve to be treated like the GODDESSES we are.

Women, if your man doesn’t worship the ground you walk on, you need to WALK AWAY.

If he expects you to invest 50/50, it’s time to bail. The man should always put at least 75% into the relationship and the woman should put in 25%. That’s how it has always been! It’s like chivalry is dead or something.

If he doesn’t treat you like you are the best thing that has ever happened to him, that is NOT THE LOVE YOU DESERVE.

You deserve a love that doesn’t ask you to change. A love that understands that you can’t always text back right away or have a logical conversation (hello, you are an EMOTIONAL human being, you can’t just ignore that about yourself).

You deserve a love that deals with you when you’re crying for no reason and blaming it all on him. You deserve a love that stays no matter what – even if you threaten to leave because you want to hear him beg you not to. You deserve that validation!

You deserve someone who will FIGHT for you, no matter what. Because you are a princess. You are a Goddess. And anyone would be LUCKY to just be in your presence, fellow women.

So stop settling for less than you deserve. The truth is, you can act as irrational and unreasonable as you want and you STILL deserve a love that never steps out of line.

Wait for that love. No matter how long it takes to find it. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
