Prison Worker Accused Of Helping Inmates Escape Pleads Guilty: had closet sex with killer at least 100 times and plotted to kill her husband.
“I think that to a certain extent, Matt got her to feeling good about herself, better than she had for a period of time, and she was swept off her feet a bit;” her attorney said.
“I enjoyed the attention, the feeling both of them gave me and the thought of a different life,” Joyce said.
Now before you judge and talk about how ridiculous this sounds, be honest and think of some of the desperate times desperate measures you’ve had when it came to a man. I know I’ve had some “never say never” just plain desperate encounters.
Oprah Winfrey once shared that while she was in her 20s, she had such a low self esteem that her relationships were a wreck. One story that she told was about a boyfriend of hers who told her that he wanted to break up and she fell to her knees and cried and begged him not to leave. The television and movie star says that as her man walked out the door, she clung to his ankles in a desperate attempt to get him to stay.
Unfortunately, many women have at least one story in their past where they allowed themselves to do crazy things because they had convinced themselves they couldn’t live without a man.
What defines a desperate person? Desperate people make decisions that are not in their best interest out of fear.
Some common fears that single people grapple with include:
*Fear of being alone
*Fear of being forced to settle
*Fear of repeating the past
*Fear of never experiencing true love
*Fear of never being accepted (flaws and all)
How do you stop this cycle? To stop being desperate you have to end the pattern of inaccurate, negative beliefs about yourself. You need to begin to believe that you have something wonderful to offer and that the person you’re “meant” to be with is actually out there. In other words, you need to begin to re-train your brain.
Here are a few ways to start:
1. Take a break from dating and focus your attention exclusively on things you’re confident t and good at doing.
2. Look at your pattern for seeking help, and change it.
3. Give love back to other people, places and things.
4. Give yourself a makeover.
5. Give the judge and jury in your head a rest.
Try one of these ideas to get started, or try them all for a deeper impact.
Creating your extraordinary life includes having an extraordinary relationship. 💛
