Do not settle.
Do not settle for that job because you think it’s all you can get.
Do not settle for that relationship because you think it’s all you can get.
Do not settle for anything.
You deserve more.
You deserve the best.
You deserve love and great sex and the house with the picket fence.
You deserve to be surrounded by people who love and support you.
To be surrounded by people who accept you for who you are.
You deserve to get as much back as you give to others.
You deserve happiness.
Life is way too short to sell yourself short.
I never said it was easy.
Trust me, it is never easy.
There will be bumps along the way.
There will be people who get in your way – and not in the good way.
There will be set backs.
It is the way life works.
Set your sights high and don’t be satisfied until you get there.
Because true happiness isn’t going to just fall in your lap, you must seek it.
You must work for it.
You must ask yourself the hard questions.
You must be willing to make the hard decisions.
You must be prepared to go through the hard stuff, not around it.
And when you go through the hard stuff, the other side is that much better.
And you become that much stronger.
Do not settle.
Settling is giving up.
Settling is saying “I don’t deserve anything better than this.”
And we all do.
We all deserve what we want.
What we want is out there, it just may not look like you expected it to look.
It just may not be where you expected it to be.
Just don’t settle.
“The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for.”
