I think you’re amazing. Your inner beauty is what I love the most. I wish you knew your value because you wouldn’t settle for less than the best. Some people don’t deserve you. I can compliment you all day long but until you realize that you’re a gem, you won’t be convinced. When you know your worth, you won’t keep people around that constantly hurt you. Your friends & your man don’t define you. The length of your hair, the size of your hips, the fullness of your lips, how fly you dress & the amount of makeup you apply don’t define you. You are a child of the King & no matter what your past says about you, you control your future & God loves you so you are what He says you are. Ask God to help you see yourself the way He sees you. Life can knock you down but the best part about it is you don’t have to stay down. Love yourself so much to where you don’t allow people in your life that don’t love you the way God loves you. Real love & real friends exist but you have to stop looking for what’s wrong w/people & love & embrace what’s right. People will call you by your pain, (your past) but God calls you by your name. (Your future) Never let any1 tell u that you aren’t destined for greatness! It doesn’t matter how many times you fall as long as you keep getting up & never choose to give up & stay down. I believe in you & its time for you to believe in yourself! Don’t worry about who won’t let your past go! Focus on those that won’t let you go because they see the potential of your future. No one deserves to be alone. I’m sure every1 has been at the place where they feel alone in a crowded room but it’s the trick of the enemy to make you feel alone when you’re surrounded by people that love you. When you’ve been hurt so much, you can become blind to who really loves you, & who really cares. Because your love has been misused, you are settling but I dare you to look in the mirror & say “self, you are talented, beautiful, strong, loving, kind, & you deserve greatness!” Don’t just say it because I told you to, say it until you believe it. Dear friend, you are wonderful & you can never be replaced but the greatest lesson you have to learn is self love! When you love yourself, you won’t settle. If a man doesn’t support your dreams & do everything in his power to keep you happy w/out you giving him sex, he doesn’t deserve you! If he can’t support who you are w/out trying to make you what you are not, he doesn’t deserve you. If people lie to you & don’t tell you when you are out of line, they don’t deserve you! Real friends love you enough to keep it real! Dear friend, from today on, live your best life for you! Surround yourself w/positive people that inspire you & won’t let you give up! Hang around people that refuse to let you go down the wrong path! Dear friend, (u know who u are) I hope I answered your question :)
hmmm… I think about love often. I used to wonder how tangible real love was but then I realized love starts within me. If I don’t love me, how can I expect others to love me??? Many of us look for love in all the wrong places and things and we get the wrong kind of love in return every time. Let me be real… A lot of us aren’t experiencing real love because we don’t know how to receive it. You would be surprised to find out how many people don’t know what real love is. Some of us are afraid to really love because we are afraid of being hurt. Love is about taking risks. You almost have to love someone so much it hurts. I know what it feels like to give love and not receive it so I could tell you a thing or two about loving until it hurts but I still love like I’ve never been hurt before. It’s not easy and I didn’t learn how to do it overnight but hey, I can at least say, my love is genuine. Everyone that says “I love you”, doesn’t really mean it but a part of growing is realizing who your real friends are. I’d rather you never tell me you love me and show me than to have you tell me constantly and never show it. I will take 1 real friend over 1,000 fake ones any day. I learned what real love is when I experienced GOD’s love. God’s love is unconditional. As people, we fail Him and some of us fail Him daily but guess what… He still loves us. It doesn’t matter what you did and how many times you did it, His love won’t run out. Don’t take advantage of His love because you know that but choose to receive it by receiving Him. People love you with conditions. They love you as long as you never hurt them or disagree with them. They love you as long as you are doing what they want you to do or as long as you’re at a place where you need them. They love you as long as you don’t have more than them but fool around and be blessed in an abundance and see where they’ll be. I tell my friends this often, “I don’t want anything from you but your friendship. I don’t want your friendship if you’re only my friend while I’m on the mountaintop. If you turn your back on me while I’m walking in the valley and I’m at my lowest, I don’t want you on top of my mountain celebrating with me.” Think of someone you really love and care about. Think about that person that you would do anything for… The one you will go out of your way for to make them happy… What if that person constantly hurts you or abuses your love??? What if they lie on you constantly? What if they had an excuse every time you just wanted to spend time with them? What happens when they spend more time pushing you away, than embracing your love??? Does your love for them run out? Does the hurt outweigh your love for them? Are you so battered by their misuse of your love that you can’t forgive and keep loving them? If you answered yes, you love with conditions. That’s not real love. I love the saying hurt people hurt people because its so true. Some people have been hurt by some many people that they refuse to let people in who genuinely care about them because they fear those people will hurt them to. My job as a Christian is to keep loving and do my best to love the hurt out of them. I want people in my life that make my heart smile. Every time I think about them, everything in me smiles. I want to be that person to people as well. To sum it up, LOVE IS beautiful, it’s painful, confusing, great, misunderstood, and challenging. Let’s take a risk and love without limits :)
￼ I’m a perfectly imperfect woman that strives for perfection daily. I LOVE GOD with all that I have and all that I am. I love hard & laugh often & I sing a lot. When I love, I love deeply from the depths of my heart to make sure you feel my love genuinely. I’m straight forward but I’m also laid back. I love being different. I’m not a follower. I’d rather stand alone and stand for right than fit in with a crowd and go along with being wrong. Hey, I’m a believer in standing for something so I won’t fall for anything. Like everyone else, I have flaws BUT, I’m learning to embrace my flaws. I tell myself my flaws are what make me unique and my unique is beautiful! hmph! I believe in me. Sometimes, my fears suffocate me but I am learning to push through them because I WILL NEVER GIVE UP!!! I’m not a quitter. I create my own happiness. I don’t rely on others to make me happy because I know too well that people will fail you. I love myself and no one loves me like I do. I know how I need to be loved so instead of waiting for love to find me, I love me for me. Because I love me, I expect the best for me. I call myself a rose because roses are beautiful but in order to get to the beautiful flower, u have to get past the thorns. I’m tough and can be stubborn. I laugh at myself because a lot of people have these bubbly mottoes they live by but mine is “a frown a day keeps the foolishness away.” My real friends know that I’m a kind hearted person but I don’t let everybody close to me because everybody doesn’t mean well & when I’m your friend, I’m your real friend. If u can’t accept me at my worst, no matter who u are & how much I love u, u don’t deserve me at my best! Every1 deserves love. It doesn’t matter what they’ve done, every1 deserves love. Whether love comes from family, friends, or a significant other, it’s always wonderful to receive it. I’m inspired by music, fashion, & genuine people. I’m honest, sometimes brutally, but I’m compassionate. I’m an encourager. I love to push people toward their purpose. I love & appreciate the small things. I don’t ask for much but the little things are important. I have a heart for kids but I don’t want any of my own until after I’m 30. I just decided 30 is a good age so until then, I will live my life to its fullest so my future kids can have a mommy who has lived her life & be able to share all of me w/them when they get here. To sum it all up, I’m fun, loving, caring, honest, perfectly imperfect, kind, giving, stubborn, blunt… I’m SIMPLY TIFF :)
