Love isn’t supposed to hurt, or so I’ve been told but I am old enough to know that things don’t always turn out as planned. I never understood why people find it necessary to test another human being’s limits in order to truly call it love. In my lifetime I have loved and lost but I never could explain why some people felt it necessary, to attempt to break me down, only to come back into my life and claim how much they missed me and loved me.
Now don’t be fooled, we could 100% relate this to romantic relationships without a doubt; men willing to push aside a good woman who would walk on water to give him anything he needed, to be a nurturer, a support system, his freak in the sheets and lady in the streets, you made him feel loved, needed and wanted, like a man. Then you got the stand up dude, might not have the most money but he’s a protector, a provider, he cares if you ate and if you get home safe, he misses you when your not around, he calls you beautiful, and knows what it takes to make you feel good in and out the bedroom. These are the people who are tested and I never figured out why. People like to gamble, know they have something good in someone; whether it is your girl, your man, your family, your friends and that is the person they shit on.
When it comes to matters of the heart you deserve to be with someone who loves you and isn’t afraid to admit it, appreciates you, makes you feel safe and secure and who is trust worthy. When it comes to your friends someone who can hear you out, has your best interest at heart, can hold you down when your down and out, someone you can confide in, who is non judgmental and reliable.
In any kind of relationship, don’t be so desperate that you settle for less than what you deserve. Hindsight is 20/20. Know your worth and don’t apologize for having high standards and above all remember: “Happiness comes from within”.
