Again, it's wrong, but every time one of my male friends gets treated like crap by a woman, I breathe a little sigh of relief because I realize that even though we're creatures on completely different ends of the spectrum, we're still the same species. We still beat with the same heart (even if I do think men have an extra few layers of thickness to theirs).
1. Change The Way You Think
When it comes to matters of the heart, we're all guilty of making excuses about why we didn't put ourselves out there. But contrary to popular belief, it isn't easier said than done. Laurel's advice?
"Trying" is a pre-emptive excuse for failure or not doing it at all. Do your best. Have zero excuses. If you don’t find success, make a midcourse correction and try a different tact. Keep at it until you do find success."
