When I look back at my life, it’s glaring how little I valued myself. Despite wanting my own needs met, I was essentially giving myself away for free.
The big question I asked myself was: WHY?
How many of you remember a time you’ve given yourself away for free?
At the time of my sexcapades, I had no thoughts of the dangers nor emotional aftermath that might come from my casual sexual encounters.
Fast forward 4 years and I just can’t believe I gave myself away for minimal texting, a FaceTime call, and a coffee. For little to no effort men had access to the most precious part of me.
Did I really set my price under $5?
Is that what I really thought I was worth?
The brutal answer: YES!
When you give yourself away for free there is something broken inside of you. Not to mention the perpetuation of hook-up culture that is damaging to the foundation of relationships.
Let’s face it, as long as there are women who are willing to give themselves away for free, men will NEVER be forced to step up to the plate and treat us the way we deserve.
The only way to make wide scale change is for women to collectively STOP GIVING THEMSELVES AWAY FOR FREE!
Know your worth and don’t accept anything less. If you’ve lost sight of your worth, then go to therapy and start learning to love yourself.
A woman who loves herself doesn’t give herself away for free!
A woman who loves herself has high standards and doesn’t lower them for any man!
Learn to love yourself and encourage others to learn to love themselves so we can shift the dating paradigm in a positive direction!
Only YOU can elicit change in your life!
