DON’T SETTLE FOR HIM

Hey friend,

Happy Monday! Have you listened to the latest episode of the project lumière podcast? You can listen to it HERE. It’s all about the complexities of being human. Here’s a part of it:

You can be shy but also not at the same time. You can be gentle but also loud at times. You can be reserved around new people and fully yourself with others. Your voice can be spoken over and it can also be raised. You can recharge by spending time with people but also by spending time with yourself. You can be still some days and super energetic others. You can be half extroverted and half introverted at the same time. You are such a complex beautiful being and you do not just have to be one thing. You can be intricately complex and beautifully simple at the same time. You’re still growing, becoming and you’re allowed.🌻

Being human is so beautiful. I also just want to encourage you. I was talking with a friend and this statement came up:

You can’t settle for that guy. You can’t settle for the controlling guy, because when things get hard he’s going to be the one to tear down not build up. Remember he’s going to be the one who disciplines your kids. You can’t settle for the lazy guy because when the going gets tough he’s going to sit down instead of trying to work hard and get money for his family. You can’t settle for the guy with low standards because when things get tough he’s going to be the one to get intimacy from someone else. You can’t settle for the selfish guy because when things get tough instead of serving his family and putting them first, he’s going to put himself first consequences be damned. Have grace and become the future wife your future husband is looking for but don’t settle or lower your standards. Don’t settle but also don’t be the one someone settles for either.
