“Don’t Waste Your Pretty!”

"Don't Waste Your Pretty"

This is what I say to someone when they’re obviously wasting their time in a bad relationship.  It’s a short sentence and it just about says it all.

We all age…you are doing this as I type.  Ouch!  Now, not all of us (eh hem) are able to maintain our “good looks” throughout our lives, so wake up now and pay attention to what is going on in your life!   This actually applies to all ages…but I’ve seen way too many young, beautiful girls turn into: depressed; over-weight; hopeless complainers because they made the wrong decisions spending their precious time…and spending all their precious pretty on a jerk!

According to “Nice Girls Take Charge”, there are five rules every girl need to burn into their brain:

1.  Know what you want

2. Believe you deserve it

3. Communicate directly and concisely

4. Be prepared for “push back”

5. Put yourself first — you’ve got to get your needs met to be a happy partner

There is only a limited amount of time when we’re in our “prime”.   USE IT!  Take stock of where you are in your life — right now.  If you’re really not happy with the guy you’re spending the precious minutes of your life with—you’re never going to be happy with your “Prince” —no matter how much you drink, or eat, or smoke to fog your glasses, he’s not changing.   Bad relationships just get uglier as time goes on and I hate to tell you this, but you will get uglier too if you’re not happy.  If you’re with a guy who doesn’t honor you; elevate you; trust you; love you – I say: NEXT!   Now is not the time to waste your precious “pretty time”.

Use your assets while you have them.  “Don’t Waste Your Pretty!”  Got it?

Any other good advice in not wasting your time or energy or pretty on someone who doesn’t make you happy?

I still hope it’s ok to sleep with him on the first ‘date”.

It’s good advice and I just wish more women would incorporate that attitude into their sense of self. I’m glad you love my blog, that means a lot to me. Thanks for the comments! —dean—
