It is so easy to settle. Yes, that's right, it is easy to pass things by, choose to not see, accept the things that you wouldn't accept in a different time etc. This is the unfortunate thing that happens when your self-esteem is all out of sorts. I mean let's think about this for a second....
When you gain weight, when you reach a different age, when you get lonely, when feel like you can't measure up to friends/colleagues. You lower your defenses, you change your agenda, you dumb yourself down, and you are more opened to things you probably wouldn't have given a second thought when yourself esteem meant something. Ladies the scary part is until you reach a level of self-love and self-care, you could possibly reach this level by default.
Is this a black woman thing? is this a white woman thing? is this a distinguished woman thing, or a poorly managed woman thing? The answer is all of the above. When you aren't focused on building those areas in which your lacking, your self-esteem plummets and you are liable to accept anything, you're more willing to be "less picky or demonstrate a standard", Ladies, Ladies, Ladies, ladies stop it!
Make a commitment to yourself right now! Decide that you are one of a kind, you don't have to settle and anything worth having you will show up correct. You won't have to make any adjustments, you won't need to dumb yourself down, you won't even need to be different in fact you will be able to be YOU and that will be the one adornment that you don't have to change or take off.
Ask yourself, why can't I be me? I mean the real authentic me. What standards am I aligning with and is it something that measures up to where I am or want to be? What's my value and am I charging the full value of me or giving people a discount. Ladies take the time to reflect on old behaviors and make a decision that this behavior will not be a driving force for you. YOU deserve so much more.... Now start walking in it!
