Wanna know what I think? I think as girls, many of us have been through devastating heartbreaks. Ya know, the type of heartbreaks that cause us to Netflix binge, forget about the gym, and break out the tissue box kind. Yep, we’ve all been there.
These type of heartbreaks cause us to put up a shield. This wall that we forget to let down and we refuse to let anybody in–even the good ones.
I am ashamed to say that I have turned down some really great guys because the guys of my past. Too many times I would say, “guys are all the same. Why should I even give him a chance?”
WHAT A COP OUT.
Do I honestly believe that? No. Is it a feeling of just being scared to let down the wall again?–yes.
Girlfriends, let’s not let previous relationships define every guy.
How would we feel if we weren’t given chances due to the reputation that some girls leave? You could be passing up the opportunity of a lifetime.
Let him be a gentleman. Let him open your door. Let him hold your hand. Let him step outside of the norm.
Let us cultivate CRAZY AWESOME relationships. Let’s take chances.
I am voting for a new dating scene. Something other than “Netflix & chill” something so uplifting and something that glorifies Jesus in every. single. way.
