The Hard Truth!

This was posted by my 80+year old 6th Grade Teacher.

Here’s the Truth Ladies! (or Gentlemen!)

The following doesn’t keep a man:

Being pretty…Being honest…Being loyal…

Treating a man good…Being there for him…Caring about him…Making an effort for him…Paying attention to him…Spending time with him…

You could have the BEST intentions…you could have the most sincere feelings…you could be a good woman…and you still wouldn’t be able to keep a man.

Because the only way to keep a man is that if he wants to be kept by you.

You can’t force a man to be with you…You can’t beg a man to stay with you…You can’t love a man into loving you.

You can tell when a man wants to be kept when the relationship gets hard…and he does EVERYTHING to fight for you..

Because a man only fights for the girl he wants to belong to.

So if he isn’t fighting for you when things get hard…

Then that means that he no longer wants to be kept by you anymore.

The Moral of this?…

Don’t hold on to a man who doesn’t want to be kept by you.

No – you are NOT giving up on him…it’s him who gave up on you.

And it’s you who should not want to give anymore of your time than you already have.

Know when its time to let go and walk away…and know it is time for him to be un-kept.

  1. Just saw this now, and it’s similar to a post I just had about words vs. actions. Someone has to actually WANT something in order to be there, and in order to put in effort. If there effort is not there, then that shows the person doesn’t actually want something (even if they say they do).

  2. I added the crucial comment of your 80 year-old 6th grade teacher to my post 68!
    This is what happens, most people who have life experience (good and bad) get wiser. It is a positive side effect!
    Thank you and thank you to the 80-year-old wise teacher!
