A message for Young Women

As a Mother this is a topic that has always weighed heavy on my heart.  If you are a young lady thinking about or maybe already dating, let me share a few words of wisdom with you.  I have already walked the road you are getting ready to walk.  Your Mother has already walked the road you are getting ready to walk. Listen to the women who have already been there.  Let us be a guide for you so you do not have to make the same mistakes in your life that we made in ours.

The world we live in today suggests to young women and any woman dating for that matter, that once you are in a relationship certain things are expected from you by your partner.  Most girls will at some point give in to this pressure.  If that is you, or you are thinking about giving in to this pressure, you need to ask yourself why???  Is it because your boyfriend will breakup with you?  Maybe your friends are doing this and they think it is crazy and weird that you are not participating in this type of conduct?  Having an intimate relationship because you feel pressured is NOT love.    The bible teaches us in 1 Corinthians 13:2  Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  

If you respect yourself, others will respect you.
