Before I get too preachy, let me start by saying that late last week, I had a major lack of self-confidence, which coincided with one of my guy friends basically rejecting my asking him to prom. I spent days wondering what could possibly be wrong with me, why there has never been a decent fellow who has wanted to go out with me, or at least get to know me better. In other words, I was fairly depressed. During this time, I prayed to God for strength and guidance, and talked with my mom a lot. At first I still felt awful, but over the weekend I came to a point of self-realization. God helped me to realize that I am a strong, independent young woman who most certainly shouldn't rely on a boy as a source of happiness. Don't get me wrong...it would be wonderful to be loved by somebody, but I most certainly don't need the opposite sex for self-validation. I am kind-hearted, loving, caring, selfless, intelligent, humorous, and beautiful. In other words, I am the entire package, and I know it! So, if a guy passes up the chance to be with me, it's completely and totally his mistake and his loss, rather than any fault of mine. There is a very, VERY slim chance of him finding anyone else like me!
Ladies, I encourage each and every one of you to have the same mindset. I'll be praying for you every day! Just remember that you are worth infinitely more than what some boy happens to think of you.
Peace, love, and blessings to you all!
