I received this as a text yesterday, and found it to be so impactful I knew I had to share it with all my SisterFriends:
"Never make a man a priority when he only makes you an option!!"
I was totally blown away when I really sat down to think about this because I was going through another disappointment in a relationship. I'm not sure about any others here, but I'm not the type of woman to accept being an option, and thus I often find myself alone. I believe that life is too short to sit back and wait on something to happen, so I often make it happen myself. Yeah, I'd love to be in a loving relationship with a man that loves and respects me, but I REFUSE to be taken for granted. I don't know where some people get it that all BBW are so lonesome and desperate for attention that they'll let any man do anything to them, but I simply am not the one!! Whoa, didn't mean to rant like that, but I had to get that off my chest. Anyway, SisterFriends, I sure hope you enjoy my 2009 Mantra and please feel free to share it with all your SisterFriends!!
