The Bad Boy Trap

I must admit that it took me longer than it should have to stop my bad boy dating pattern. I guess it's just hard to let go of something that you has become so comfortable. The drama, that bad Boys Bring to the table became a weird excitement for me that was intoxicating. I wore myself out trying to change them and they got angrier and angrier the more I tried.

News flash for me was...they never changed despite my best efforts! I could sit here and over analyze how I got into such a pattern and blame my childhood, but why does it matter? The bottom line is I was able to break free of it. It all starts with realizing that you deserve a quality individual. The time wasted in trying to change someone can be used in really enjoying your life either in a healthy relationship or being single.

Like our own Dr. Laura would say...."from now till dead what kind of life do you want"? YOU have control over it! Be smart and break the chains of the bad boys!!! They have nothing to offer you.
