So. I’ve been seeing a guy.
Who seemed REALLY great!
Super sweet, thoughtful gestures, texting me daily in a non-overbearing way.. we’ve gone on 3 dates over the last 2 weeks.
But then out of nowhere last night, he texted me to say that he “tried” but he just can’t get over the fact that I’m overweight and the skin issues that I have. He apologized for being shallow but my stretchmarks and my acne/scarring was something he couldn’t get past.
At first, I was devastated. I mean, it made me feel UGLY.
But then I realized, nah, I’m GORGEOUS. Who does HE think he is to think that my value lies on my physical attributes?
And also to realize that we all have our own flaws and our own preferences regardless.
Ladies. I’m sharing this with you because no matter what a guy says, YOU ARE WORTHY.
Get into a place where your confidence overrides any negativity the world has to throw at you!
Don’t let negative experiences/words/hurts linger in your heart.
Recognize the TRUTH that you are amazing, wonderful, intelligent, classy, DROP. DEAD. BEAUTIFUL.
I was crushed, hurt, and self-conscious at first.
But that lasted all of 2 minutes.
I replied with class and kindness, “Thanks for being honest with me and not wasting any more of both of our times. Best of luck to you.”
Block and delete. Move on.
Granted, it was only a couple of weeks.
And I know the longer you invest in someone, the more it hurts.
But that’s also the thing.
CONTINUE BEING YOUR AWESOME SELF IN THE RELATIONSHIP.
Just because you have a man doesn’t mean you have to flip, flop, and turn over for him. In fact, a real man wouldn’t make you do that – he wouldn’t make you earn his love (I feel like a majority of us can relate with the narcissistic guys we ended up being with)
Stay the beautiful, magnificent woman that you are, single or taken ❤
