She thought she had found her prince,
but he turned out to be a dreadful frog;
he told her she was his sweet princess,
but he treated her no better than a rabid dog.
When she told him the relationship was over,
he became vicious and smeared her name;
this further validated her reasons for leaving him,
since now, she could see all of his toxic shame.
The Red Flags waved to her early on
in this deadly, treacherous dance;
yet, she hid from each one of them,
because being in-love put her in such a gratifying trance.
But now she is so much stronger;
cloaked with the armor of self-love and respect;
she boils each new frog she meets,
and makes sure the past ones do not return to reinfect!
It is important to learn the Red Flags of Narcissism and Sociopathy! These dangerous predators leave us with long-lasting, if not permanent, scars.
My prince did not always appear to be so hideous until he knew he had me- his princess– ensnared within his tight grasp.
By the way, men are at risk, too, of ensnarement by female frogs!
Have you ever kissed a prince or princess, just to have him/her turn into a frog? Yuck!
It is possible to avoid these predators by becoming educated on the warning signs and listening to our intuition.
When we notice our princes or princesses whipping their tongues out of their mouths to catch flies, we ought to take our leave, and not second-guess ourselves.
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
– 1 Peter 5:7
