Upon meeting Mr. Wrong, with every lie, multiple disappointments, infidelity, an abortion, many tear breaking encounters, she still tried to work things out. No matter what happened, what he did, and even being unavailable for many nights, she kept hope alive. After being in a non-existing engagement, a miserable marriage, mental and emotional abuse, she finally found her strength to leave. Strength came with a price though, loneliness, anger, sadness, and a broken heart. But, this is where she learned self-respect. Self-respect is priceless. The lesson behind this all is, no matter what you do in a relationship to “earn” a ring, you cannot marry a man that don’t want to be married. You can cook, clean, and even be as sexy as possible, nothing will work. The lesson here is you can be on top of your game and still be foolish. Opposites do not attract, they divide.
