You Want Unlimited Love & Attention from a Man… But Do You Give That to Yourself?

You Want Unlimited Love & Attention from a Man… But Do You Give That to Yourself?

As women we have visions of sugarplums dancing in our heads when it comes to what we want from a man. What do we want from a relationship? Everything! He has to be kind. He has to look good. He has to make you happy. […]

The Guy Seems Interested But Doesn’t Ask for Your Number… What’s Up with That?

The Guy Seems Interested But Doesn’t Ask for Your Number… What’s Up with That?

For a time, ever since my life transformation I’ve experienced a weird phenomenon with certain men. The guy approaches me. He’s extremely interested, has a nice conversation with me, but then leaves without asking me for my information to connect again. At first I think, […]

A Man Should Not (and Cannot Truly) Complete You

A Man Should Not (and Cannot Truly) Complete You

As young girls and young women we’re taught by our parents and the media that having a man is a part of being a complete woman.

It happens both subconsciously and blatantly:

– “one day you’ll grow up, get married and have a big wedding” (as a young girl you start to believe that the main goal of LIFE is that wedding)

– “when are you going to have kids?” (an act which requires a man)

– movies, TV shows, magazine articles tailored for women that only focus on how to compete, “win” and keep a man

So it’s easy to get caught up in the idea that you need a man to complete you.

But the truth is that a man should not complete who you are — he should be a special companion to an already complete and whole you.

One of the top reasons why so many women get into abusive or unfulfilling relationships with men is that they are searching for that someone or something to complete them. What happens instead is that either the man breaks down her self esteem even more OR leaves her and she’s back to feeling “incomplete” without the guy.

When you’re a whole and complete person all by yourself you might want a man, but you won’t need one in order to be okay.

Being in a happy relationship but not NEEDING the relationship in order to BE happy and complete is a very powerful place to be in as a woman.

Do you think you can get there?

I think so.

Love Lynn
