You Are Worth the Wait
Will he like me more if …?
Will he stay with me if…?
He must love me if…?
Everybody is doing it.
Are you feeling pressured to have sex or do other things that you really don’t want to do? Don’t compromise yourself to feel loved. Listen to that voice inside that says…No, Wait, or I’m not ready.
Having a high self esteem also means knowing your self-worth. And when it comes you sex, you are worth the wait.
Things to Think About
Know what your boundaries are. Know lines that you are not willing to cross.
Here’s an idea: Write down lists for yourself, then stick with it.
Be Aware of Manipulation
Some guys may get upset or treat you differently when you don’t “put out” like they want. It’s never cool for someone to insult you or make you feel guilty for not having sex. Feeling pressure to have sex doesn't mean you must say yes. You should be in control of your own body and remain true to yourself. Someone who really cares about you will respect your boundaries.
