That is a question you should take the time to ask yourself. Does that question cause you some discomfort? Well, it should.
Are you aware that God gave Adam a specific function and way of operating? Here is what God's Constitution has to say: ...Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
You know who you are, now here is how you operate: you function by speaking. Death and life are in the power of the tongue. And all those who love it will eat its fruit. Whatever you say, will happen. This principle is still true today. Keep in mind, the King designed us to function in such a way that what we speak into our lives determines in large measure our environment and circumstances. What we say about ourselves and our situation influences our patterns of thought and belief and thereby seem to become self-fulfilling prophecies. Before you even consider entering a long-term relationship with someone, get your own tongue sorted out first. Understand that whatever you speak regarding your personal circumstances--positive or negative--will become a reality in your life. Learn to speak positive and confident truth about yourself before entering a long term relationship. Also,be very careful what you watch on television as well as the internet. They can, and most likely will, influence you in some way. Garbage in, garbage out!
If you know how you function, you won't have to depend on other people's approval or other individuals' resources in order to make a living. You will be able to take care of yourself using your own abilities, gifts and talents. Remember this, God the Creator spoke the earth into existence. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, "Let there be light" and there was light. Remember, the King has given you talents and gifts for a purpose. His purpose.
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, he will also reap". What "seed" are you sowing today?
