What is Your Gift?
When dating, just like anything in life, people tend to focus on what they are going to get from the other person. Is he/she attractive enough, financially stable, fun, will you enjoy hanging out with him/her, fit enough, etc., etc. Is this person going to fill your needs, take away your loneliness, make you feel better about yourself? Most singles ask themselves the question, “What’s in it for me?”
What about changing that question to “What is in it for them?” If you shift your focus on what you can give to other person an amazing transformation occurs inside. Instead of coming from a place of need, you express yourself as whole and having so much to offer. You stop focusing on what you perceive you lack without a partner and start thinking about what a blessing you would be to their life. Who would not want to be around someone with so much to give?
If you have doubts about your value, call some friends and ask them why they love having you in their life. What are the gifts you offer to them? Soon you will realize that you are the prize and any person would be lucky to have someone like you as their true love. Imagine bringing that energy on a date….wow!
