30 Day Writing Challenge: Day 5
When I first decided I wanted to do this challenge it took me a while to find a list of topics I actually thought I could write about.
Today marks the first thing on the list that I feel confronted by. Which is why I don’t like it.
I like this blog to share USEFUL content. A place where others can feed off of my ideas. Right now I’m just struggling to find the USE of saying anything via internet land to an “ex”. Not really my style.
So I’m changing things up. In order to feel more natural talking, and hopefully allow you to gain something from this.
Relationships are wonderful. Love is beautiful, and sharing with someone is such a unique experience. You bond. You grow into each other, and sometimes out of each other as well. That’s okay.
Because you learn about yourself along the way. You learn how to do hard things: compromise, communicate, and understand. You also reap a lot of benefits: support, stability, and trust. It’s unlike anything else you’ll ever experience in life.
The worst thing you can do is give up on love because you’ve been burned in the past. If I did this I would have missed out on so many loving experiences, and staying stuck would be far more painful than risking the hurt again.
Many people feel vengeful because they are looking at relationships all wrong. Stop asking karma or God to get back at someone you once loved, and start getting back with yourself. Immerse yourself in things that make you happy. If you don’t know what those are, then you have all the time in the world to figure it out.
In order to have a healthy relationship with anyone, you have to have a healthy relationship with yourself first. So when things go wrong, come back to yourself and keep working. God’s timing is always right. He makes no mistakes. Trust that.
Post after post I see myself referencing these life lessons, and I don’t really know why I feel like I need to share them. Truth is, I have such self doubt in my head about doing any of this. Which is why I HAVE to do it. God doesn’t grow you when you’re comfortable.
I am telling you that I am uncomfortable sharing about my life because I don’t have it all figured out. Not even close. I just know I chose love. Not always easy, but the truth isn’t always meant to be that way.
