Yesterday I went to visit Mima in the rehabilitation, who by the way is doing a wonderful job regaining her strength and walking again. I always feel sad when I leave her because we tend to have great conversations about anything and everything.
On my way out there was a well dressed older gentleman walking the opposite way down the long hall, he stopped and tipped his hat to me as I passed and said, "Have a lovely evening". I actually blushed a little as I said, "Well, thank you, you do the same". It was such of a nice gesture on his part and reminded me that I DESERVE TO ALWAYS BE TREATED LIKE A LADY!
Not that I settle for less but now a days most of us are in rush mode all the time and tend not even notice when a man does something nice for us. If you respect yourself and know that you are worth it a man will treat you as deserve.
Recognizing your own self worth is a lot harder than it sounds, I know first hand because I didn't always realize that I was worth having doors held open for me and more. I struggled with my own security for years allowing others (family and a not so significant other) to tell me that I was not worth anything at all but I KNOW BETTER! I am a wonderful loving woman and a terrific mother who deserves nothing but the best in life. And so don't you! Don't get me wrong I'm not telling you ladies to go yelling at your husbands saying that you deserve to drive a Bentley or a new Coach purse. What you do deserve is to be treated with respect and love at all times. This is a two way street now so don't forget to always treat your man/loved ones with the same respect.
