I have just divorced and I can tell you what I have learned over the past several marriages, dating in between and being single now...If you want someone to REALLY get into you...First you have to love yourself enough to become interesting, FIRST and Foremost...to yourself. If you have many interests, keep up with world events, develop a truly outgoing and funny persona...you cannot help but attract as many as you can handle no matter what size, shape or situation you are in. I am talking from experience. The greatest gift you have to give someone is a winning, positive,
outlook and personality. No one wants a downer, a whiner, a negative spirit draining the very energy out of them. We all have more to offer than we think until we hear the POP...That means when you hear yourself pulling your head out of your rear and starting to become all you can be. As a former psych nurse I can tell you....Be all you can be, and you will never have to worry about being alone again.
I figure I'm me, take me or leave me. It has taken me a long to time develop into the person I am. Like a Phonenix, I've risen from the ashes. Only this time I have learned to see things in a different light. Look, we all need to vent to someone. Life isn't perfect. Isn't being able to vent to a friend something friendship is about? And if you are working on a relationship, isn't it fair that they know both the good and the bad? It's all a part of life and if you're looking to share it with someone, then I've learned I have to take the good with the bad, as long as the good outweighs the bad! LOL It's just your individual choice as to how much and what kind of drama you want to deal with. Have a great day people!
Yon beauty speaketh the truth! In addition to strength within yourself, belief in your own worth can also aid in shrugging off the slings and arrows of those who treat you badly. I think it was Eleanor Roosevelt who said, "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."
