We want to be loved after we've been hurt, we want to feel accepted, we want to feel as though we are the most beautiful woman in the world, the apple of your eye. All of this sounds so good to be true but we have to be very careful as to what we are asking for. I've been in love and been in lust, both seemed to similar to me because I was so clouded by the two. To be in love is "a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend" (dictionary.com). To lust "intense sexual desire or appetite" (dictionary.com) there is a difference between the two even though sometimes we get the two confused.
We want to be in love so bad that we assume that lust is love causing us to become so desperate to be with someone because it "feels good" but the question is....is it really good for you? After 6 years with a child I realized that it wasn't. Yea the sex might've been everything but the relationship was garabge (just being honest) I didn't even think about the fact that my child was involved. Doesn't mean I'm a bad mother but it does mean I wanted to be loved so bad that I almost put my daughter in jeopardy with someone who had no problem raising their hand to me, yelling at me or disrespecting me.
Desperate-"having an urgent need, desire." Don't be so desperate to be in love with someone who won't love you back. Especially for moms even though you want to be loved and have someone to hold at night etc. Always remember someone loves you, your child. Don't put a man's love over your own flesh and blood I've been there and done that. I took time away from my child to be "loved" by someone who didn't love me right.
I WAS desperate but I am sooo worth the wait! 🌻
