“Women are like apples on the trees, and the best ones are at the top of the trees” – Anonymous
Most men don’t want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples from the ground that aren’t as good, but are easy. So, the apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they are amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along. The one who is brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree – Anonymous
I came across this saying while browsing through the net. I didn’t want to post it but after a few days of stewing on it, I decided to post the saying because there are truths in it and also it can go both ways for women and men.
Because we are at the top of the trees, we have our standards that seem to be ridiculous and yet it’s the things that make us special. So, instead of waiting for the right one to come along. We settle for the one who is okay, we lower our standards and settle for less because we think we are not worth more than what is presented in front of us, we make excuses and even we try to fit ourselves to their mold.
The saying above made me think about myself, the way I think and I feel about certain things in life as it is not pertained only to love but choices of career and what we tolerate in our lives. There is a reason why the best apples are on top of the trees, there is a reason why roses have thorns, there is a reason why God made you the way you are – so special and there is none like you – He sets you apart from others.
With that, I am not going to settle for less and I will wait for the right man to come along who will see the beauty and the gem in me and makes the decision that it’s worth the falling and getting hurt to climb the tree and pick me up 🙂
