Know Your Worth

There’s not a day that goes by where I don’t hear a woman complaining about her non-committal situation with a man (and sometimes with another woman). I’ve been there and often traveled down that non-committal road of temporary sexual satisfaction (mostly from him), frustration (not knowing where the “situationship” was going), anger (mostly because he didn’t text or call like he said he would), confusion (a part of me wanted to end it, but I didn’t want to be alone), trust issues (questioning his every move), blindness (purposefully ignoring the red flags or jumping over the roadblocks), and looking for love (looking for what I didn’t propose to myself).

I’m not feeding you any bull shit or trying to come off as a wailing bitch because “one man hurt me.” I speak from experience. I still don’t know it all, but my life experiences have taught me to be more on guard. I can honestly say, I stand as a woman who loves and appreciates herself.

If that complementary man was to fall from the sky and land on my doorstep (wishful thinking), I would be willing to share that love with him (never giving all of me … saving just enough for myself).

We often place ourselves in situations then blame the disastrous outcome on the other party. It’s not just the men … ladies, you play a major role in every sequel. Knowing your worth as a woman will open doors (not bedroom doors, but car doors, restaurant doors, museum doors … you get the picture). A woman’s worth is like a rare pearl just extracted from the shell of a mollusk … it is invaluable … it’s indissoluble … it’s the closest thing to the soul of a woman. A woman’s worth combined with a man’s courage may cause an out of body (or out of reality) experience.

Be a woman of stature! Know your worth!

  1. Very well said. I think all women, young, old, single, dating or married should never lost due of their self worth and always say….. “save just enough for myself”

  2. I think that we get so caught up in trying to be who we think our significant other wants us to be that we get lost in the process. And when we look in the mirror we don’t even recognize our self anymore. This was a great topic I’m sure many people can relate to.

  3. You guys have covered it all. I have been married for several years now and i lost myself in the beginning. Once i regained my individuality he said he didnt know who i was. Wow, im still dealing with that. I must say it is very important to find a balance between being a woman, a mother, and a wife. Try adding employee to that mix. It seems that we must be everything to everyone and still be true to ourselves. Remember that girl that liked to have fun. Its what attracted him to you in the first place. Its great to be responsibe but let loose too!

    1. Yes! Yes! I’ve lost myself in the past, but presently I continue to reign above those things that held me down. I can only imagine the roles that must be played as a mother, wife, friend, sister, employee, etc. At times, we may often ask … Who am I?
