when you know better you do better
After doing a little life detox, I began to realize that in a society where being a baby mama and not a wife is a badge of honor, our standards have become kind of low. Don't get me wrong, a relaxation of the social norms that allows people to live openly in whatever their choices and circumstances may be is an awesome thing, but that doesn't mean that the overall result is the death of The Gentlemen as we know him. Now I am the first to admit that I too have fallen victim to the lowering of standards, but as the old saying goes "when you know better you do better" and I am making a commitment to do better.
In an effort to also honor my commitment to put a positive spin on the negativity in my life, I have compiled a list of things that show that your standards are too low and you deserve better.
When your idea of appreciation is a shoutout on Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter...YOUR STANDARDS ARE TOO LOW
When your idea of a compliment is "Girl take your sexy ass in there and (fill in the blank)"..,YOUR STANDARDS ARE TOO LOW
When your idea of chivalry is being driven around in your car...YOUR STANDARDS ARE TOO LOW
When date your idea of date night is you picking the place, the activity, and picking up the bill...YOUR STANDARDS ARE TOO LOW
When your idea of a gift is something you picked out, ordered, and picked up from the mailbox...YOUR STANDARDS ARE TOO LOW
Take some time and detox your life, your space, and your mindset to make room for the people and things that you deserve!
