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”.
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!
