In my years I've learned a few things. Maybe not the easy way, but at least it's been learned.
First off, if your relationship doesn't work the first time, it's not gonna work the second, the third, the fourth... by then, people are betting on how long it lasts "This time".
Ladies, take heed, hear my words; He will not change for you. Therapy won't change him, your actions won't change him, your threats won't change him, God can change him but only if he allows it. Ladies, he will NOT change for you, he will just change for the next woman. He already knows what he can get away with when it comes to you.
Sometimes, staying is worse then leaving.
No matter what you deal with, or how you feel, you're a dope ass woman with an even more dope ass heart. It's been shattered, broken, pulled, and stabbed, yet it still beats and you still search for love. Props to you because you're an amazing beautiful kickass woman.
Life isn't easy, especially for a woman but lowering your expectations will not get you what you want, it'll only make you miserable.
Hold tight. Your on your way, and when you find him, you'll know why it didn't work out with anyone else and you'll be thankful.
