Please…Don’t settle for a mediocre life. You deserve SO. MUCH. MORE.
It would break my heart to see you settle and squander the days, months and years of your life. You were beautifully designed for so much more. So whether it is about you, about your career or about love, settling is never an option.
Don’t settle in the absence of self-love. Don’t settle with feeling uncomfortable in your own skin, nor settle in your beliefs that you aren’t good enough or that you don’t deserve more. You don’t need to wait to like yourself. Now is the time to understand your worth and realize your strength. You are created to be exactly who you are, so love yourself enough to know you’re worth more than feeling inadequate.
Don’t settle in a career that doesn’t set your soul on fire. You spend the majority of your time working. Therefore, don’t lose your dreams and spirit to a career that barely allows you to live the life you’ve always dreamed of. Stop settling for a work environment in which you’re made to feel like you don’t matter, like your voice isn’t heard or like you’re a disposable object instead of a person. Pursue something that fulfills you and ultimately makes you happy to wake up every day and do.
Don’t settle for a cheapened version of love. When you settle in your love life, you aren’t allowing yourself the time to find true love. There’s something better out there – someone better out there – but you’ll never find them if you choose to stay complacent in a mediocre relationship that doesn’t suit your needs. You don’t deserve words and actions that aren’t genuine, nor do you deserve a love that’s less than honest, real and raw. Rather, you deserve a trustworthy relationship that won’t give you a reason to be guarded. You deserve a lifetime of feeling secured and protected. So hold out and be patient. Don’t be afraid to lose the good for the great. You deserve nothing but extraordinary, genuine love; a cheapened version of love will never do.
When you settle and opt for autopilot, you lose pieces of yourself you didn’t even know you were giving away. Therefore, you must abandon the idea of settling. Don’t even treat it as a possibility, nor squander your worth when you have so much to offer. Don’t allow yourself to ease into the comfort zone because that’s where dreams go to die.
Remember, you are greater than the one who settles for a mediocre life. No one is going to make sure you’re getting what you need, want or deserve, so you have to do it for yourself. I promise there will be more…much more. So gather up your courage, strength and resilience to choose your life; don’t settle for it.
