Your validation comes from God and God alone. It doesn’t matter who you’re with.” She continued, “I’m not saying these guys are bad. But these are self-made men. There’s a lot of women that want these men. At the end of the day, these men are accustomed to getting their way.

You’re going to have to settle, and compromise, and work things out within yourself before they feel like they have to do that too.
