Seven Days of Inspiration

Day #5: Don't excuse things that aren't up to your standards.  When someone is showing you who they are, don't pretend they're someone else.

"When someone shows you who they are, believe them--the first time." 

-Maya Angelou 

Journaling Prompts:

1.  In the past, have I made excuses for behavior that I knew I wasn't ok with?  Why did I do that?  

 

2.  Can I see that there's nothing to gain by settling for less than I truly desire?  Staying in a hurtful relationship just to be in one isn't winning.  It's still a loss.  

 

3. Do I believe that someone will honor and appreciate me in a relationship?  Am I willing to wait for that to happen with the right person?
