Then you feel disappointed when he doesn't do what you expect him to?

Self loving rule #1: Put your happiness first
Women in relationships often want to please their man. To make him feel satisfied in the relationship, they can go out of their way to be nurturing and giving in the relationship. Driving across town, cooking a three course meal and baking cookies are just some of the things you would do to make him happy. You even make sacrifices to accommodate his plans and needs.

Imagine this, you've been working on a new business venture that has the potential of creating overwhelming success for your life. While you love your idea and believe in your idea, the reality is, you only work the idea a few hours each week.

A desire to partner with you and provide the resources needed to shift your vision into reality, is the offer presented. After spending a few weeks with the new partners, it becomes keenly obvious that the idea everyone thought had such great potential, needed a lot more research to be completed and was simply not ready. The opportunity that was placed in your palm is now gone because the preparation wasn't there.
