So far I have talked about lessons from my Dad, Mother, Grandma, and Brothers. This one comes from me. It is lesson that took me a long time to learn. It took a long time because I kept on making the same mistakes over and over. It wasn’t until I stopped the chain of bad decisions did I truly find happiness. It doesn’t mean I’m perfect, it just means I’m better at making decisions today, than I was yesterday, at least I hope I am.
One thing is for sure and it is something that I swore to myself that I would never do again and that is I will never settle for less. No way Jose! I will not settle for less, go below the standards I set for myself, or compromise my values in the hopes of making someone else happy. That is just not going to happen anymore. If it does, sue me!
There is nothing worse than settling. Sure you could be cheated on, abused, ridiculed, etc. But settling for less is one of those things that eats you up from the inside out. Sure you might be happy day one, but day two is forever. You will never be happy if you settle. So don’t!
It doesn’t matter if you like blue and she likes pink. However, it when it comes to bigger things such as, you like children and she doesn’t. Well that’s another story. Don’t settle.
Be yourself and be with someone who accepts you for who you are. It doesn’t matter that happen in the past. What matters is today and the rest of your lives together. Remember, people don’t change and you can’t expect them too. If you are hoping they will, then think again.
Thank God I’m not settling now. Woo hoo!
