What is so wrong with me?

The question that almost anyone will ask themselves after being dumped “what is so wrong with me?”

You probably gave that person everything they asked for, you worked so hard at the relationship while the other person kept telling you that it wasn’t enough. You tried to clearly communicate what you needed from him, and when he couldn’t deliver, it somehow turned into your fault.

In the end, his excuses for why you are not right for each other don’t add up in your brain. The truth is, you are not right for each other, but not for the reasons he says.

The reason is because you are better than him. You are the one with the degree that you are actually using. You are the one with the higher paying job. You are the one that knows who you are and OWNS IT! You never apologize for being the woman you grew into, nor should anybody ever ask you for one. You have no questions about what you want or need from your partner or from your future. You have got everything that he wants for himself, but will not work for.

He is the one with an inferiority complex, he is the one that cannot handle what you have to offer. He is the person without confidence that cannot handle such a strong woman. He needs an independent woman to need him, and clearly that is not the way we work.

So, the question “what is so wrong with me?” Is answered by saying, the only thing that is wrong with you, is that you are settling for less than you deserve. You have never been the person to settle, so why are you settling now?
