Without fully realizing it, we women tend to make a lot of mistakes when it comes to dating and relationships. Fortunately, once you recognize that you are making them, you will be able to break free from these self-destructive patterns and start leading a life of abundance and self-love. My hope is that you beautiful women find the courage and wisdom needed to take whatever action is required to lead a joyous life filled with love and happiness. Without further ado, here are the top ten mistakes you should avoid:
Mistake #1: Comparing yourself with other women and your man exe’s- Why do it to yourself? Quit comparing yourself to other women. Just be yourself. She’s not you and you’ll never be her. Let all the jealousy go and focus on what is great about your relationship with him.
Mistake #2: Choosing the same type of men- Ladies, not all men are the same. Instead of being better, stop choosing the same men. Be aware of your values. Establish personal values and stick to them.
Mistake #3: Putting up with shi**y boyfriends- Staying in an unhealthy relationship far too long in hopes a man will change.
Mistake #4: Entertaining temporary people- You are not obligated to engage with everyone you cross paths with. Whether it’s a friendship or a relationship, it’s important that you strive to only build connections with those you see a potential future with.
Mistake #5: Being too forgiving- Falling for the “I’m busy” excuse. We’re all busy and we all have the same 24 hours. Nothing stands between a man and the woman he loves. A man who genuinely cares for you will make time for you. Don’t put your effort and time on someone who only wants you around when it’s convenient for them.
Mistake #6: Fighting for a spot in someone’s life- If someone truly cares about you, they will commit to you. Don’t waste your time and effort on someone who only wants you when it’s convenient for them. You deserve someone who makes you a priority and makes it clear he wants you and only you.
Mistake #7: Settling for “good enough.”-Never settle for mediocrity. Especially when it comes to love. If someone is not giving you their all, it’s time to cut the cord and make room for someone else. Love should never be ordinary. You deserve the mood and the stars.
Mistake #8: Feeling obligated to confront someone about their unacceptable behavior- You are entitled to your beliefs and values. Speak up and stand up for yourself. Be clear on what you want and need. Remember, what you allow, is what you condone.
Mistake #9: Changing yourself for a man- Don’t ever alter your life for a man. No matter how bad you want a certain person in your life, there are times when you just have to let go. Focus on being a better you and true love will come when the time is right.
Mistake#10: Focusing on the past- You can’t change the past. Whatever happened in the past cannot be changed. It’s time to let go and focus on the present moment. Keep moving forward.
My guess is that you found yourself where I once found myself- making one, two, three, or more mistakes. My guess too, is that this makes you feel embarrassed or ashamed. Don’t worry about it, lady. We’ve all been there, and it’s never too late to turn things around. Stay strong and keep a positive attitude!
