When I had a crush on my husband five years ago, I was completely terrified that I would jack him up.
First off, I was crazy. You know those stereotypical Latina girlfriends that everyone laughs about? Yep. I was that girl. I would play games to try to trick my boyfriends into telling me where they were, who they hung out with, and why they weren’t with me 24/7.
I would drive past their houses to check to see if they were at home or not.
I would start-up fights and arguments just to make them feel upset whenever I was feeling upset.
Hey, I never said that my past relationship record was polished!
Also, because I was crazy, my dating record wasn’t quite praiseworthy.
So when it came to this no-nonsense, super-mature man of God, I felt that if we agreed to start dating, I would end up hurting him and/or would chase him away.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I desperately wanted to find a “good” man to settle down with. But to actually meet one in person was beyond my scope of faith. It was a huge wakeup call that inspired me to get my life together.
I knew that my old dating tactics wouldn’t work with him. So it freaked me out to think that I would end up being the one who would mess things up.
Looking back now, I’m so thankful that I decided to give this a try because it proved to be the best relationship I’ve ever had with a man. But this is all due to the fact that I dealt with something at the beginning stages of our relationship first.
I dealt with my insecurities.
I had a lot of them.
The guy didn’t matter; what mattered what that I deemed myself “no good” and “un-datable”.
And how did I get to his point? Simple. Because none of my other relationships ever worked out.
So surely, there must’ve been something wrong with me. And my crush didn’t need to go through all that.
In this video, I want to share exactly HOW I was able to deal with my insecurities when dating my husband, and what you can do to deal with yours!
