I Decided to Date With A Purpose

When I finally made the decision to want more, I knew I had to change my position. I started praying about my dating life more purposefully. I began distancing myself from certain individuals that I knew wasn’t on the same page as me. Whew, let me tell yall, that was no easy task. I had developed friendships in the midst of my dating life that I thought were important to me. So denying myself and keeping my thoughts together deemed a bigger challenge than I thought. This is important to recognize. A lot of times we develop these situationships or these comfortable relationships in the midst of our relations. Peep what I said folks. We develop MORE than what was ever supposed to be. Whether you feel like it’s his or her fault, or that someone led you on, we have to take accountability for ourselves. I had to take accountability for my part in why I wasn’t getting more from the guys I entertained. I had to change the way I thought of love, relationships, male companions, and re-evaluate what was important to me going forward.
