Who’s still swooning over Rihanna’s baby bump?!!!😩 I know I can’t be the only one.
So there I was grabbing some lunch walking back to work when I saw the picture:
There she was with A$AP Rocky and I couldn’t help but think how adorable her bump was and just how genuinely elated she looked.
Then it got me thinking: I remember in my late teens how much I vied for the whole package in my twenties: the house, the two kids, the husband to match. But I realized as I got older, I saw how important it was that my worth and happiness set the tone for how I went about my relationships.
We’re prone to stating the obvious in what we don’t want when it comes to relationships; or love lives, yet what are we doing to ensure we truly place emphasis on the things we desire?
I’ve learned over time that being with someone shouldn’t come at the expense of your happiness. It shouldn’t have you question your values or even be a stakeholder in your mental health.
I knew coming into this post I wanted to dive deeper and stray away from what others wrote about pertaining the soon to be parents.
So no, there’s no time frame you have to reach in order to be in love and ultimately be with someone who wants to grow with you, and honor all that you are. Take the time to cultivate all of who you are. Take the time to figure out your desires. Be intentional with your needs.
And when you ideally find that person who loves you unconditionally, nothing else will matter. There won’t be any doubts nor would you find yourself sacrificing your happiness.
All in all, love can truly be patient and kind when you remember to put you first in all ways, always.
