Affirmations for today

I am committed to growing my standards.

I am worth Love.

I am honest about how I feel without needing to justify it.

I think it’s safe to say that almost everyone on the planet has been hurt in a past relationship. If you haven’t yet, then you will at some point. Heart-break happens. It will either be a personal relationship, or a business partnership or a friendship. It’s not always in the love and relationship category, but many times it is.

Today I want to talk about trusting even after you’ve been hurt.

As a man, I believe that it is important to show up and to be consistent – to be THERE for your woman. This is one of my primary commitments to Jenna.

I think that one of the most valuable things in the whole world is the heart of the woman you love. And I believe that it is a man’s duty as part of loving his woman to protect her heart and never let it break.

Ladies, how many of you have been hurt in the past? My guess is, most of, if not all of you.

Because of this, it’s vital that we guys understand that you are protecting your heart.

I’ve learned that women really want a man who is consistent, who shows up for her and who doesn’t waiver. It’s a man’s grounded, single-pointed focus on following his purpose, plus showing up for his woman that proves to her that she can open to him.

A woman just can’t open herself and give herself fully to a man she doesn’t trust. (Editor’s note: This article is written about “men” and “women” but applies to all relationships. Each person occupies one of those energies,.

Given that many women have been hurt in the past, many of them have closed down to protect themselves. This doesn’t mean they don’t want love. Au contraire. All women truly want is to be loved, to be seen, to be felt and to be INTIMATE. But none of those things are possible without first establishing trust.

This is why I think it’s important to develop a solid friendship and base before diving deep into sex. I’ve seen that a woman who has been hurt in the past will sometimes rush to bed or have a fling with a guy that she doesn’t have feelings for. BUT – when there are feelings, when there’s chemistry, many times that is scary and she closes up even more. But really, deep down, I believe that she is waiting for the right man to see her, let her test him and to remain solid.

There is a fine line between what I just described and her not being into you. So know the difference.

But many times, amazing love could blossom on the other side of having patience and just showing up for her. When a woman gives her heart, it is her everything. It is so strong and capable of such love, but at the same time it is so fragile and can be hurt very easily.

So, today, don’t give up on her. Give into love. Get to know her. Don’t rush. Remember, when it comes to Love, sometimes the patient path is the fastest way. You can have amazing intimacy without sex. And when you build a friendship and intimacy up and let the energy build, you are preparing yourself to be in the most fulfilling, wonderful and sexually exciting relationship you could imagine. Sex without love is fun, but sex WITH love is Divine and the highest form of union between two people.

Call her bluff. See her hesitancy not as rejection, but as a test to see if you are going to leave or stay. She will open up and give herself to the steadfast man whom she trusts. Be that man.

Sometimes you have to fight for love. And sometimes you just have to show up, be present and let it emerge.

In the comments let's discuss.



P.S. Take what resonates and leave the rest.

Happy mothers Day to all.God bless to all!

While you may encounter situations or people in your life that make you feel as though you can't, know that you can do it. You can do anything you put your mind to, and raising a family just happens to be perhaps the most monumental example.

Still, part of believing and understanding that you can and will do it, is the willingness to accept help when it's offered, and needed. Accepting assistance that comes your way isn't a sign of weakness, but instead a sign of humility. Whether it's a stranger, friend or your own child offering you a helping hand, open up your hand to accept, and then take the opportunity to pay it forward to someone else who knows they can do it too.

To be perfectly honest…" is another phrase to strike from your speech. It often prefaces negative comments, and can seem condescending. It signals a larger issue: If you are taking the trouble to announce your honesty now, maybe you aren't always truthful.
"You are more likely to seem like someone who is perfectly honest when you are no longer commenting on it,"
