There is a story females are told when they are younger – a young handsome prince will come to save you from your life. Give you everything you dreamed of and you’ll live happily ever after. This is how it was for me. All those Disney movies I loved all seemed to have a damsel in distress, with a prince waiting to sweep her off her feet.
This was the story of my life. Instead of focusing on me, I was always waiting around for my prince. When I didn’t get married right after college, I felt like a failure even though I was beginning to build my corporate career. I had much to look forward to but always felt like I was wrong.
Well, I am MY OWN young handsome prince and I don’t need anyone else BUT ME!
You Don’t Need Someone Else to Save You
It’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that we need someone else to save us. We look to others to make us feel loved, valued, and whole. We think that if we could just find the right person, they would make everything better.
But the truth is, we don’t need someone else to save us. We just need to stand up for ourselves and know that we’re enough as we are. Here’s why:
You’re Capable of Saving Yourself
You’re stronger than you think. You have the power to change your life and create the future you want. You don’t need someone else to do it for you. You just need to believe in yourself and take action.
You’re Enough as You Are
You don’t need someone else to make you feel complete. You’re already complete on your own. You have your own strengths, talents, and abilities that make you unique and valuable. You don’t need someone else to validate your worth.
You Deserve to Be Treated Well
You don’t need someone else to save you from a bad situation. You deserve to be treated well, and you have the right to stand up for yourself when someone mistreats you. You don’t need someone else to rescue you. You can rescue yourself by setting boundaries and standing up for what you deserve.
You Can Build a Support System
You don’t need someone else to save you, but that doesn’t mean you have to do everything alone. You can build a support system of friends, family, and professionals who can help you when you need it. You can lean on them for support and guidance, but you don’t need them to save you.
You’re in Control of Your Life
Ultimately, you’re in control of your life. You get to decide what you want and how you want to live. You don’t need someone else to save you because you have the power to create the life you want.
Once again: you don’t need someone else to save you. You’re capable of saving yourself, you’re enough as you are, you deserve to be treated well, you can build a support system, and you’re in control of your life. Remember these things the next time you feel like you need someone else to save you. You’ve got this!
