INVEST in yourself, your needs and your future, not his. Because if he walks away, guess what? You would have wasted your valuable resources on someone who didn’t deserve it.
Do not be quick to “build with him”. Ignore the fools that encourage you to “Give him a break.”
You are not Bob the Builder and you shouldn’t be building on his (or your) “broken”.
Many other women who don’t look like you were raised to have requirements and to not settle. But somehow when we seek the same, we are called “gold diggers”. Ignore that ish too.
INVEST your time, energy and money in you. If he wants to be with you, he should already be “built” and fully equipped.
