    I feel like you are talking directly to me. I suffer the same insecurities day in day out. Reading this piece has given me motivation to not think low of myself, because that’s where i think i fail myself the most. Thank you @AwakenedWoman

      Hello, thank you so much for reading AW. I honestly believe, I am speaking to you and millions of women that like us have the same insecurities. Take comfort and strength in knowing that we share many of the same feelings. It is the reason I started AW to let women know worldwide that we have a common thread and should support eachother. I battle my own issues every day but I show up for myself and have learned not to accept less than I deserve. You will too! You got this!

    How can a woman know when a man is using her? Thn breaks her down. And she allows it because she wants to please. And heal? Then you have enough mistreatment. That you run away. Then its all your fault. And you qusetion yourself.

      Hello, thank you so much for reading AW.

      I’m no exception to situations of this type. My experiences are the same as so many woment out there.

      Honestly, speaking – you know deep down. May it be denial or blind love but we betray our intuition which is one of our biggest mistakes as a woman. We know when a man is not good for us. We make excuses or see potential that might never evolve. A man who loves you will put you first, he will give you the respect you deserve – this is a non-negotiable. If he breaks you down, it is for control. His insecurities lead him to find ways to degrade you, making you feel like he is the only one that would want you with your faults. This makes it easier for him to possess you. In turn you doubt yourself, feel guilty and question not only who you are – but your gifts. He can’t take anything from you without your permission.

      We can’t allow anyone to take our worth, self-respect and make us feel unloved. We have to love ourselves more than anyone, hold our head up high and take nothing less than the best. You are worthy, you are enough, you are amazing but YOU have to believe it first. Once you do, there is nothing that can stop you from achieving the beautiful life waiting for you.

      I appreciate you trusting me with your stories. Remember this – we can flip the switch at any time to change everything! You have the power and control over your life, no one else.

      Stay strong. I hope AW inspires, encourages and empowers you to fight for the life you envision.

      Thank you.
