Love you......mean it......

Don't be so desperate to be in love that any person that gives you attention you will give them your heart! Learn to love yourself before you can love on anyone else. Don't get me wrong I want to be in love again and married but I want to do it the right way. I want to be able to love my husband and myself, instead of giving my all to someone and still feeling empty. I was with someone where I gave all the worldly possessions they desired and saw them happy but I felt empty and used. No matter how much money I spent to try and make him happy to continue to stay with me I did not feel respected or loved. Love should be given on both ends! Don't be so desperate that you rush love just to meet your "deadline", and end up being with someone just because you don't want to be alone. My goal was to be married by thirty, and I will be thirty next year and don't even have a boyfriend. At first I was so depressed and kept asking myself what is wrong with me? Why doesn't anyone want to be with me let alone make me their wife?! Then it doesn't help when people keep asking me "when are you going to get married? Your sister just got married so does that mean your next?" When my sister got married I was a little jealous and wishing I had someone who loved me like her husband did. But over the years I've learned to love myself and just wait on God's timing. I rather do it right then do it for a show and please other people because they are rushing me.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.
