12 Ways I Gave My Power To Men Without Even Realizing It—I’ll Never Do That Again

7. LETTING THEM DETERMINE MY WORTH

If a guy I was really into didn’t return the sentiment, it would really mess with me. I didn’t deal well with rejection and it killed my self-confidence. I should’ve known better by saying, “Forget him—I’m better off without him” because it was true. But I always thought that what the guy thought of me mattered more than what I thought of myself. Screwed up!

8. ANALYZING TEXTS TO DEATH

When my crush texted me, I could literally spend hours picking apart his messages, wondering if he liked me or what he really meant when he said we could go out. Ugh. I doubt he was obsessing about me. If I could have all those hours of analyzing back, I’d do something much more productive with them, like learn to fly a plane or something.

9. MAKING THE RELATIONSHIP KING

I always felt that my romantic relationships were the most important things in my life. They were great, but I shouldn’t have made them important to the point of blocking out other things, like my friendships and career goals. That’s such crap! Now, I make myself the most important thing and if a guy can’t take that, he doesn’t deserve a piece of the pie.
