When you let the fear of being alone control your dating choices, you tend to rush into situations with guys who you know aren’t right for you.
Fear of being alone makes you move an unemployed grown adult man who has a questionable history and multiple children he doesn’t support into your house.
Fear of being alone makes you call a guy who slept with you and then didn’t call you for weeks to ask for some more mistreatment.
Some women are so afraid of ending up alone with loads of cats as friends that they compromise their self- respect, dignity and common sense just to be with someone.
You know what’s ironic? This type of woman still usually ends up alone in the end after a divorce, being abused, being dumped or experiencing another setback.
Here is the question that all of us ladies must ask ourselves at some point in our lives.
Would I rather be patiently single and have my dignity intact as I grow into my full womanhood, allowing the right people to enter my life
Be in a series of unhappy situations with men throughout life that leave me feeling used up and unfulfilled? Oh yea, and possibly still alone or even *worse* stuck with someone who makes me absolutely miserable?
All because of fear…
When we operate in fear we make really bad choices in men and in life.
So what are the steps to overcome this often debilitating fear that some of us women have about being alone?
1) recognize that you are living in fear
2) spell out the worst case scenario that you’re fearing (like being a cat lady)
3) realize that even if that were to happen, it’s not the end of the world!
4) release the fear and start LIVING your life free and bold with a clear head!
