DO NOT SETTLE. When you look at him or her and you recognize that they are not who you can grow with, be your Self with, be “WE” with, raise a family with, have in your corner REGARDLESS of what happens…when you see that…MOVE ON. Why …stand there and lie to each other?
I have a firm belief that God did not put me on this Earth to settle for a situation that I can not fully thrive in. Especially when it is a situation that I have enough control to walk into and away from if it doesn’t suit my needs spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally, or financially, etc.
Recognize when you are misusing your time and energy. And recognize that you staying in a situation that is not conducive to your ultimate good is not only misusing your time and energy, but the other individual’s as well.
