Manifesting A Meaningful Relationship: Today I Am Unpacking

A Love Letter to Myself

You have to remember who you are, what you want and what you deserve.  Sometimes what we want isn’t what God wants for us.  Walking away from it may be hard, it may even hurt, but you have to remember staying and settling for something is not the same as being blessed with something.
