You have to be your own anchor in a relationship. You must be there for yourself no matter what happens.
You can only attract the person of your dreams when you know precisely what your standards are.
Being desperate is not an admirable quality. It is weak and is prime bait for an abuser.
When someone knows you truly have a zero tolerance for abuse, you can much more easily attract a partner who also would never even consider being abusive. This is completely possible. My husband is this way because I was equally so strict with what I would desire and what I would never tolerate.
When you are crystal clear on the type of person you would consider sharing your life with you must be that same person on the inside. Do you want a partner who is desperate and cannot live without a relationship? No, good, I didn’t think so.
How do you turn a lifetime of low self esteem around?
First you must know the qualities that are in need of transformation and then you must be willing to use all of your inner resolve to be true to the real you that you are now becoming.
