Black Love: Your Self-Growth Journey Before Becoming His Wife

Hello fam! Let’s tackle a topic that’s got everyone talking: how to be that woman of substance, before you step into the role of his wife. We’re talking about self-growth, finding your own identity, and being the best version of yourself.

Here’s what I am thinking, right? Know your worth! PAUSE. Fam, this is a non-negotiable. Recognize your value, your uniqueness, and your strengths. You are a queen, as said in Proverbs 31:10, “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.”

Be independent. Yes, you’re preparing to be a partner, but that doesn’t mean losing your individuality. It’s essential to be financially, emotionally, and spiritually independent. Strive to improve yourself and achieve your goals. Remember Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Develop your interests. Don’t let your world revolve around him alone. Have hobbies, pursue your passions. Show him that you’re a woman with diverse interests and talents.

Communicate effectively. As Proverbs 25:11 says, “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.” The way you communicate your thoughts, feelings, and expectations can make all the difference in your relationship.

Maintain your physical and mental health. A healthy body and mind are essential for your overall well-being. Exercise regularly, eat healthily, and take time for self-care. Also, nurture your spirit. Pray, meditate, and grow your faith.

Show kindness and compassion to others. The way you treat others reflects who you are as a person. A generous, compassionate woman earns respect and admiration. As it says in Proverbs 31:26, “She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.”

Embrace your flaws. This is a big one. Every time I go to the gym, I see folks struggling with this, I promise you. Nobody is perfect! Understand and accept your flaws. But, don’t just stop there. Learn from your mistakes, strive to improve, and grow.

Above all, build your relationship with God. Spiritual growth is crucial for personal development. As it says in Matthew 6:33, “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

This is about personal growth, independence, and character. It’s about being a woman of substance who brings value to the relationship. Don’t rely on NO DUDE to determine your value.

Keep it pure, keep it a buck, and stay true to your values. We’re in this together, fam!
