If you are a good woman, you are strong, established, loving, and loyal, and you deserve a man who can bring just as much to the table as you do.
A good woman should not have to settle for less in life when they have so much to offer. Being a good woman is not necessarily only about looks and accomplishments in life, but more about how you act, treat people, relate and what your goals are. If you are a good woman and you know it, you should accept no less, and you deserve no less than the following things in your relationship.
You are a good woman, and you know that your honesty is one of the best and worst things about you. You do not sugar coat things, and you tell things like they are, as it should be. You should expect your partner to be honest no matter what the circumstances are. You deserve no less than honesty!
Trust, like honesty, go hand in hand. You deserve a man who will give you trust. If your partner does not trust you, then you have nothing. Without trust, there is no belief in honesty. If your man doesn't trust you, do you think can you really trust him?
If your man trusts you, and you trust your man, you should be allowed freedom. You deserve a man who will not smother you, and you deserve to lead your normal life as you would without him, with him. Your partner should not be mad or jealous if you want to hang with the girls after a long days work every now and again, nor should you mind if he does the same once in a while. Trust and honesty play a huge role in this as well.
Although you both have friends, jobs, and lives of your own, you deserve a man who will always find the time to be with you. You should never have to beg him for his time. Your texts and phone calls should never go unanswered for long. Your man is supposed to be excited to hear from you, and even when you are going through a rough patch, he still should never ignore you.
Your goals and dreams should align with your man. You should not be the only one striving to hit goals in your career, and personal life. You deserve a man who wants to hustle and strive for things with you. You need a man who will encourage you as you encourage him to succeed. You deserve a man who sees and works for a future with you. One who discusses what he wants and is straight to the point, without games, about his life.
You deserve a man who will give you all of the above, and more. Never settle for less than your worth. You are an amazing woman with so much to offer to the right man. Make sure you settle with a man who is just as amazing.
Being put on the spot makes it harder for us to define our boundaries. In our attempts to appease the person giving us their attention, we agree to things without meaning to.
But failure to have boundaries lets other people force us into situations that make us resent them. As long as you think having boundaries makes you rude, the wrong people will continue to put demands on you and you will end up resenting them.
You also need to stop equating having boundaries with lack of compassion. Instead, see it as a way to have self-respect. After all, you wouldn’t go around imposing responsibilities on people if it would make them uncomfortable.
Before anyone can respect you, you have to respect yourself first.
So, don’t be in a rush to give a response the next time someone asks you for a favor. Take your time and think it over and then give an answer you will not regret.
It’s okay to be honest about what’s not okay and what is.
