We beat ourselves up. We get angry for not having enough self-discipline to diet or a personality that's sexy & confident enough to get that guy.
So there we are, wanting these great these so badly because we think we need them to feel amazing, and then when we aren't able to get them or keep them, we feel even worse!

But what if you could “live amazing,” and not have to seek out happiness as much as just “be happiness”? What if you could "be love" with men instead of just wanting their love?
Be Confident With Men By Honoring Your Aliveness In Their Presence
What if you could look at a guy and feel like he’d be a fool not to want you? What if you could look at a fashion magazine, admire the skinny bodies and then close it and still be in love with your body, feeling that warm, yummy love surging through you?
Try this right now- say, aloud, “I’m a warm, glowing, twinkly ball of light and everything I touch, is positively impacted by my glorious aliveness!”
What happened when you said that? Did you feel better for a moment-- lighter, calmer and freer? Did you immediately go back to feeling dark and heavy—judging the statement and doubting that you could ever feel warm and twinkly and glorious on your own, without a man "making" you feel that way?
Are You In A Prison?
We imprison ourselves everyday, every second, every time we have a judging thought. Most of us live forever in this prison, unable to be free to feel light, joyous, confident and radiant in our uniqueness!
If you live in this prison, you are allowing it to ruin your relationships with men. You are allowing it to keep you seeking out men who let you live in this prison (controlling, belittling or emotionally uncaring and devoted men) and you’re allowing it to ruin your chances at sustaining a good relationship.
When you live in a prison of your own making, you emotionally wall yourself off to a man and you push him away with your insecurities. You get hard and brittle when trying to communicate and be intimate. You only hear and believe the bad about what he’s telling you and sending you through his behavior. You put yourself in situations over and over again where you become needy and can't be confident with men.
You Already Have What You Want!
I want you to stop letting the prison ruin your life and I want you to start thinking of yourself as the glorious, twinkly, effervescent, glowing, warm and powerful ball of energy that you actually are.

By telling yourself this, you aren’t lying! You really are a ball of energy. We all are composed of energy.
