As a girl who has been hurt time after time throughout countless breakups, I've searched for someone who not only values me, but values my character, morals, and so much more. I told myself when my last break-up ended, that I would never "settle" for anyone else that didn't value me and my life, nor would I just "settle" with someone for anything other than who they were as a person.
Not to sound low, but of course there are other factors to a relationship other than the character of the two partners. These factors could be things such as things such as a vehicle, job, etc. Not the actual materialistic things like what kind of car, or what kind of job, but just the fact in itself of having a car and/or job, or things of that nature. Not that I wouldn't not be with someone because of whether or not they had a car or job, but that would be a pretty big factor in a relationship, as I would want my partner to be just as successful and I want myself to be. Therefore, I told myself that I wouldn't let myself "settle" for anything less than the future I have portrayed for myself.
As I searched for someone who would value me as much as I value myself, I finally found someone who could. I found someone who can love me for who I am, despite all the trials, tribulations, and hardships that God has put me through. I found someone who can deal with me and love me despite how broken I am from the ex-boyfriends that have mistreated me.
I finally found someone that has been sent to me through the eyes of God for a reason. I have prayed and prayed for someone like the man I have found, and God finally sent me in the right direction to one of the greatest blessings I have ever received, and for that, I am forever thankful.
Ladies — and gentlemen too — I cannot stress or reiterate how important and vital it is to find someone who is good for you, knows how to love you, and treats you the way that you deserved to be treated. It is so crucial to find someone who values you and everything that you have to offer and to always remember to never settle for anything less than what you deserve. Always remember to know your self worth because you don't deserve anything less.
