Be Honest With Yourself

Every woman/man has their dream woman/man. They want that person to look a certain way, act a certain way, even want certain things, well, I wont say them out loud, to “occur” when it comes time for intimacy. So, why does the man/woman feel the need to cheat? If you aren’t happy, let that person know and let go. Fasten your seat belt.

People cheat because they want to. Its not a mistake, an accident or a see what had happened was. Relationships are about love, honesty and trust. If a person is truly happy, someone can run around naked in front of them, (hypothetically speaking), and it wouldn’t phase them at all. But you have some people who cant resist temptation. This is a weak-minded individual.

All too often, people have already decided that they have been tempted long enough so they are giving in. And its sad because the other loving individual isn’t aware that this is taking place. That’s just how things are now and its sad. If you are not happy with who you are with, move on. Life is too short to play with peoples’ emotions. If you don’t want someone to do you like that, then don’t do it to them.

Some people cheat because of what the person doesn’t have or doesn’t do. It could be money or a lack of what doesn’t “occur” in the bedroom. Okay, here’s the thing. You knew what the situation was from the jump, so don’t act surprised. If you didn’t like what didn’t “occur”, why continue? Happens too much these days.

Getting back to the person of your dreams. Its just that, a dream. There is no perfect man or woman so…STOP LOOKING! Everyone has flaws, (maybe their looks), or baggage (children, ex-husbands, ex-wives). This mentality of getting a person with a house, car and a job needs to go out the window. Why? Because nobody in the world, even that person, has it all together. I don’t care how established it may look from the outside, that person has flaws. Nothing is perfect about anyone. Another big one: Just because that person goes to church means…what exactly? Just because a person is in church doesn’t mean that they are all that. Devils exist in the church. Some just don’t show it.

I will take someone who is trying to make something out of himself opposed to an established man. You know why? Because I know that man has goals that he is working towards, and he knows what he wants out of life. At that current point, he may not be able to provide certain things, but the attempt is better than nothing. It’s about the heart, not what you can get or don’t have. Some men that are “established” as they say, keyword some, think that they have arrived at their final destination. They have it all, they don’t have to go any further. They are large and in charge. How arrogant can you be.

I don’t view a man as rich or poor. I wouldn’t want him to look at me that way. A relationship is what you make out of it. Not everyone is going to be happy for you. But you aren’t dating everyone, including your parents. If you know you love this person, go for it. After all, you worked together to build something so that says a lot. You stayed by each other’s side, and you worked things out together. That’s what relationships are about. Exclude people who never have anything positive to say.

To conclude, I say this: A mirror is your true reflection but what do you really see?
