Many women feel that they have to "do something" to be deserving of romantic love. We focus on our appearance and work hard to present ourselves in a way that is as perfect and polished as possible. We may learn how to bake complicated desserts, offer to pay "our share" on dates, or travel hours to meet long-distance matches—all in the hope of earning a long-term mate.
Unfortunately, that work often has an unintended result. We become stressed out, worry more about measuring up against unreasonable standards, and neglect other parts of our lives, such as friends, family, spiritual development, and physical and mental wellness. Worse, we may actually lose touch with our femininity in the process, taking on a masculine spirit just to be able to achieve it all.
Starting today, let's choose to follow a different path. Relax. Assume that you are deserving of love, exactly as you are right now. Reconnect with long-lost friends. Adopt a pet. Soak up unconditional love wherever you find it. When you meet new men you'll bring with you an internal reservoir of healthy love. There may still be parts of you that feel broken, wrong, or just "not perfect." Simply breath into the pain and let go. Do less. Receive more.
