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."
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?
