Do not settle for less.
If you are in a secret relationship then by all means please get out of it. No one should ever settle for a man who does not have the balls to show the world he loves you. You must never allow yourself to be treated less than what you deserve. When we enter into a relationship we give all that we have in hopes that he is the one.
We love for all that we are, for all that we can and for everything that we have. We whisper a prayer each night before we go to bed that one day this man will be the one whom we will spend the rest of our life with. We secretly wish that this relationship will last for as long as we know how to love and the fire in our heart never ceases to burn.
But what if the man you chose to love does not even want to show the world he’s holding your hand?
Why would a guy not ever be proud of you?
There is no reason to be ashamed of a love that is real. If your man puts your relationship in a secret, then without a doubt everything is so wrong with it. Do not be with a man who is afraid of commitment. Maybe he’s afraid to lose other options if tagged as ‘taken’. Worse, your man might already be in a relationship. Whatever your doubts are, let this sink into the wholeness of your soul – do not allow yourself to be with a man who is afraid to show the world he loves you. Otherwise it was never love.
Do not waste your time with a guy who does not want to commit.
A man who takes advantage of your vulnerability because you are always there when he wants you to be. Do not stay out there waiting in vain hoping one day he will make you his priority. Never miss your chance to be with a better person. Someone who will give you the kind of love you deserve.
Do not wait for a man to love you as much as you love him, or ever call you his girlfriend, if he cannot do it now bitter truth is he may never will or may have never felt the same.
So bravely walk away
Hold your head up high and be the person that you are – strong and independent. Love yourself more. Love yourself more so you will be capable of loving others more. It will make you worthy of a bigger much stronger kind of love we all deserve.
Let your energy and time be spent with someone who is proud to show the world he loves you. Be with the man who will love you back and will never be afraid to hold your hand for everyone to see.
No secrets, no pretensions, no ifs and no buts.
