In my lifetime, my teen years that is, I’ve been through so many things dealing with this topic called “LOVE.” Maybe it was puppy love, maybe it was just mind-games, but through it all I’ve learned some valuable lessons. With that being said, I’ve been stuck on this one thing… Can you seriously love two people at one time?
H,onestly, I think you can love two people at the same time, but the love you have for one person will outshine the other. I actually hate it when you’re torn between two people. You may not even EXPECT to fall in love with someone, but sometimes things happen. *shrugs* You do anyway.
SELF-RESPECT. A word that many abuse daily. The literal definition of self-respect is noun - proper esteem or regard for the dignity of one’s character. One thing I know is, if she doesn’t respect herself then who will? LADIES: If you haven’t noticed, guys treat you based off how you carry yourself which includes: attitude, appearance, and confidence.
APPEARANCE: If you walk around with skimpy, short clothing, what will you think a guy will say about you? Exactly. Negative thoughts such as “Oh, she easy.” “She a hoe.” She do this, and she do that when in reality you could be just the opposite of what that guy thinks. And most girls wonder why they attract the wrong dudes. I’m not saying you should wear church clothes all day, but dress with RESPECT - like your body is the most valuable thing on Earth. If you do not want a guy to approach you in such a disrespectful manner, then I insinuate(suggest) you come with it. You are a lady which means you are CLASSY. Don’t talk about it - Be about it.
ATTITUDE: What is up with these girls and these nasty attitudes? How can you be so pretty with the attitude of a guy? I don’t know about you, but I like to leave a good impression upon people. With the loud talking, and devilish ways, I do not think any gentlemen will like to even be around you. That is a BIG turn-off. Like i said earlier, you are what you attract. If you want a classy, smooth guy, you’re not going to get ‘em with that. Instead, calm your tone. I know the person is going to be able to hear you, Most girls do it for attention, but that is the WORST way to get it. And about the attitude - nasty attitudes get you no where but in a bad place you do not want to be in. You’re always fighting -TURN OFF - you’re constantly pushing people away - TURN OFF. Get some act right, ladies. We’re better than this.
Another thing, CONFIDENCE. Confidence is something most people, not just girls, lack. With confidence, it shows that you KNOW that you’re comfortable with yourself and no one can bring you down. When girls don’t have confidence, they tend to be insecure about many things that they shouldn’t worry about. When a guy see’s a girl with no-confidence, it shows him a couple things: 1. He can probably take advantage you. 2. It shows him you have no self esteem which is VERY unattractive. Instead of letting someone tear you down, pick yourself back up. Confidence is sexy.
I was debating on what my very first journal entry should be and I know the perfect thing: a very concise quote that a friend referred to me. The funny thing is - is that my friend and I was just going on and on about different subjects and topics. I asked him if I should start this online journal thing, and he replied , ” Why not? I think you should.” And, he hit me with this quote. So enjoy it. I did.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
