I happened to stumble across a post on social media today of a young “man” being extremely disrespectful to a woman after she rejected his approach. He called her out of her name all for the public to see. First of all, any “man” who feels the need to disrespect any woman that way is a coward period! Ten times out of ten he will never talk that way to another man so he preys on women and tries to intimidate them in order to fulfill the masculinity and power that he lacks. He basically does it to make himself feel better about being turned down/rejected or ignored. Silence is the most powerful form of revenge. Besides, why would you argue with a fool? That would make you a fool too!
I was a victim of this type of abuse at one point and at that time, I wasn’t strong enough to hold back the tears and I even started to feel worthless because of the constant disrespect. It wasn’t until I got older and wiser that I started to recognize my worth so I dare a guy to speak to me that way today! My standards are higher than ever and trust me, men can recognize a strong woman when they see one. Having high standards doesn’t make you “stuck up” or conceited, It just means you know what you want and deserve and you won’t settle for anything less.
Stop lettings these guys disrespect you! If you start putting up with it now, you’ll find yourself making excuses for his behavior and you’ll end up stuck in a miserable relationship all because you settled for less. Love is kind, not hurtful. Don’t allow yourself to be taken for granted and don’t let him get so comfortable in a relationship that he feels like he can say whatever he wants to say and get away with it. Make your standards known up front and the next time a guy says something disrespectful to you, whether you’re in a relationship or not, you’ll understand that it’s because he knows he can’t keep up with a woman of your caliber.
