and if he wants to leave, then let him leave, you are terrifying, and strange and beautiful, something not everyone knows how to love.
Something not everyone knows how to love... but, it should be noted that kings go to war for queens.
Queen: a woman of worth, who knows it. she has many things going for her, but never gets a big head. she takes care of business for herself and those she loves. she is confident, enterprising, ambitious, and tenacious.
Recognize your queendom. Because if you don't, he surely won't. Men, as much as they front like they don't, actually like and want to deal with confident women. (Confident, not arrogant. Know the difference.) So, the next time a guy tells you, "You're intimidating" or "I'm not good enough for you," instead of being bent out of shape about that and trying to convince him that you're not or he isn't (which is not your job - stay away from insecure men anyway) take that as a sign of your queendom. And if he chooses to let you go because he feels like he cannot meet some standard that you never set for him, then let him.
Queens do not keep men that do not want to be kept. Queens do not ask men to see their value. Queens walk away from situations and people that do not grow or serve them. Queens deal with kings. And honey, if that man is not going to war, and I truly do mean war for you- then I am sorry but he just ain't the one.
Let him go. Hold your crown high and continue to live your life. A king might come around. He might not. But, the best thing about being a queen, in 2014, is that you do not need a king to rule.
You do not need a smaller crown. You need a man with bigger hands, and don't you ever forget it.
