Women are Like Apples
Many times women will say, “What is wrong with me? When is it my turn to have a boyfriend, or get married?”
Sure, we all need to do a little introspection at times, and become the best version of ourselves. But other time a little perspective is in order. Sometimes it’s not about you—it’s about him.
Sometimes the guy just needs some courage to pursue…to make a commitment…to take a step toward real and lasting love. This anonymous post sent to me recently says it well:
Women are like apples on trees. The best are at the top of the tree. But most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground; they aren't as good, but they’re easy. The apples at the top think something’s wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. (emphasis mine)
Wait for the brave man. You are worth it.
