Are you guilty of going out of your way and sacrificing your needs to please the men you date? Are you frustrated that regardless of how much work you put into your relationships and display your wifely qualities that men do not seem to take you seriously? Does your dream of walking down the aisle one day while you are still young seem like a fairy tale? If you are like the majority of women today, you have been taught all the wrong things about men and relationships. In the process, you continue to ruin your chances of getting married to a decent man, and you are not even aware of it. Meanwhile, you observe other women who have men eating out of their hands and offering them the world, marriage included. If you are ready to change your luck in love, you need to learn the secret that these women have discovered– that the surest way to become a wife is by doing the least and being only a girlfriend to a boyfriend.
Need some help in the dating department? To share her tips for changing your relationship luck, I’ve been joined by Katrina Bellot, author of ‘Girl, That Man Is NOT Your Husband!’. Katrina, what inspired you to write a book helping women set themselves up correctly the dating space?
It started with years of observing women making the wrong decisions in life, love, and relationships… and from making some of those mistakes myself.
Were you seeing a lot of these types of mistakes?
Yes, all around me. Especially in the Caribbean where I live, women generally think that being a glorified girlfriend and baby mama is the best they can achieve in their relationships. I want to change that crippling mindset.
For those women who can see this crippling mindset in themselves, what advice do you share in this book?
I want to empower women to realize just how truly valuable they are and improve their lives by helping them increase their self-esteem, and in the process avoid toxic relationships with the wrong men.
That’s such a strong message, and no doubt keeps you focused to keep writing. Would be it fair to say that this love of writing and sharing your message with others energises you?
Writing is what I have always dreamed of doing for a living and it energizes me completely. Ever since I picked up my first book, I have been an avid reader and have been touched by the words of so many authors before me. I wish to touch people’s lives as well with my writing.
Do you try to keep this desire to touch people’s lives at the forefront of your mind when you write, or do you find yourself thinking of other things as you write?
When I write I am completely in the moment, gathering all my thoughts as they flow through my brain.
It’s great when ideas flow straight from your brain and to the page. But when it’s all done you do need to find another set of ideas to gather up and turn into another book. Since this work on relationships is now complete, where are your turning your thoughts next?
I am writing two more non-fiction books that I will be releasing at the end of January, also within the theme of empowering women. They are ‘Miss 20 Something : Dos and Dont’s for Single Women In Their 20s’ and ‘Just Say No: A Guide To Help Women Put Themselves First Without Feeling Guilty’. I will also be launching my daily blog at the end of January 2019.
Books and blogs galore! What an exciting start to 2019! With so much planned, Katrina, I’d like to thank you for taking a few moments out of your busy schedule to share your advice with us, and I can’t wait to see how you will continue to help empower women through this year and beyond.
