Trust yourself! Self-confidence will take you and sustain you in places where physical beauty might take you but cannot sustain you. The only physical beauty that remains intact is the glow on your face; but once you develop self-confidence, it can only gets better if you keep working at it. Get to know your abilities and strength to be realistic in self judgement. No matter what you have been through, the abilities God placed in you are still there. Getting into a relationship with a good man is not based on a perfect past but on how you feel about yourself. The good news is that feelings can be changed with intention. View yourself from God’s point of view because how God sees you will never change. You are his beloved one no matter what you have gone through, what they think or say about you. Believe about yourself what God says about you and become solid in it before getting into a serious dating relationship. Once you develop self-confidence, it will guild you into choosing a man to date and hopefully get married to. Don’t wait to be with a man to believe in yourself. Believe in yourself first. Once you know well who you are, it makes it possible to only accept to date the right person. Don’t date anyone who shows up with hopes they will change. Don’t be afraid if you leave him you won’t find another one. That is to set yourself up for a failed or unhappy marriage if even, it happens. Know also what you want in a man and be patient in prayer. There are more good men out there than we realize. They don’t turn out good when we manipulate the situation. keep in mind marriage is meant for the rest of your life and divorce is extremely painful for your children and for you. Spend more in preparing yourself because divorce is extremely expensive in all way. Develop self-confidence by becoming solid in who you are and then make up your your mind what you want in a man before you start dating anyone. While physical beauty may appeal to some at first, self-confidence naturally sustains. “35 Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. 36 For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise” (Hebrews 10:35-36).
