Stay True to Being You

If you can’t truly be yourself around him, you shouldn’t be with him at all.

You especially shouldn’t have to obsess over what you look like when you see him. It’s nice to dress up for him, but if he complains when you don’t, this is a red flag in the relationship. This could mean that he is only drawn to your appearance and not who you are or he is using you for the wrong reasons.

Don’t change yourself to be with a certain guy you like. In fact, the times that I didn’t change my morals and values was when they would find another girl…and that’s okay! If they wouldn’t have found someone else, I wouldn’t be in the amazing marriage I’m in now. God has created someone to love every little thing about you in all your goofiness, mistakes, weird laughs, bad habits, and unique personality if that is His plan for you. I enjoy randomly picking flowers to put them in my hair and singing in the shower. My husband loves those silly things about me and embraces them with open arms instead of being critical about them. There is no fun in a relationship if you feel like you must hide parts about yourself from him. Quit holding back who you are and be who God made you to be…beautiful and one-of-a-kind!

Hey, y'all! I'm Emily, a simple country girl with a BIG love for the Lord, coffee, sunflowers, cooking, and gardening. I graduated from college one year ago in Secondary Agricultural Education, and I am now fulfilling my dream of teaching agriculture to high school and middle school students while also teaching science in the mix. I am happily married to my college sweetheart, Brad, who doubles as my ag teaching partner! We are newly weds, so we are just getting around to starting a farm. As we add animals to the Cooper Fam and complete projects, y'all will be the first ones to know. :) Tator is our sweet Goldendoodle puppy that we consider to be our first child, and he keeps us on our toes all the time. Between the demands of teaching and life, I enjoy writing and encouraging others in their walk with the Lord sticking tidbits of what I experience along this journey in my writing. I hope that you will follow along and that this blog will help your faith grow longer than a country mile!
