Mr. Tom and I had our first big fight today.

As best friends, it happens. You know.

Something cracked. I was sick of being made to feel like I hardly mattered to him, when we had both coached each other through difficult and turbulent times. I told him openly and honestly.

So he told me openly and honestly about how he “loved” Poisonous Jim, and how he needed to be there for PJ in his time of need. PJ is currently applying for jobs and keep getting rejected. As a glance back at previous posts will show, I’ve been there. Big time.

I know it sucks.

I know it’s hard.

And I know that no-one can do that battle for you.

You know what? Yu have to fucking man up and get on with it. When you feel like you can’t stand to send out another application or do another interview, you do it anyway. As a friend of mine said once “you’ll do as many as it takes”. And I did. And it worked.

But no matter what it seems I have to offer, it seems that Mr. Tom is still devoted heart and soul to PJ.

But you know what, girls and boys?

Don’t. Fucking. Settle.

Don’t, not ever. Never ever.

On the way home the song “Holding Out for a Hero” came on my Spotify shuffle. And it struck a chord.

We shouldn’t settle. You are a beautiful and successful person. We tell ouselves to compromise. To accept the faults and failings of the poeple we fall for.

Well you know what?

FUCK THEM.

Lt them have their hangups. Their vain little habits, their fucked up relationships. Think back to all those self-centred bastards in your past and chuck them into a great big bin.

You deserve that big, strong, successful hunk. And he better work his sweet little arse off to get you.

Why? Because you deserve it. It’s time to stop settling. There are 1001 different partners out there who could satisfy us, so throw off that silly little shit who only gives you the half measure.

You are big and beautiful enough to be the cat who deserves the cream and more. So that guy who only gives you a portion of his time? Tell him to go fuck himself with a rake.

Hold out for that hero.

If we all stopped settling, would that standard of the sanctimonious turds out there who think they can get away by doing jack shit just evaporate? I think they would. because the metaphorical “other half” would realise that to get in there they have to make some blood effort.

We’re told to forget that romantic dream, that in life we have to compromise and make exception in order to be happy.

Well fuck it. Fuck them. Fuck THAT.

Take that chance, and just stand up and shout out loud that you deserve the best. Yes, you. Your friends may have settled, but you don;t have to. because out there right now is someone who is everything you ever hoped he would be.

And he’s coming for you.

So hold out for that prince. And tell those frogs to go fuck themselves.

You’re bright. You’re beautiful. And you deserve the very best the world has to offer.
