I know, I know...it's been a min since I've had a post
Life just got a little bit rough for me so I had to unplug myself from the world
I don't really know what it is, but I just can't seem to get these things right
When I think I have a good thing going, it blows up in my face
But I've come to learn that sometimes God has to let life turn you upside down so you can learn how to live right side up.
To sum it up...If he can bring you to it, he can bring you through it.
I often ask myself..why?
Why don't these things work for me?
Why am I always the one that feels the heartache?
Why can't things just go my way?
I never seem to find answers to these questions
In today's world, the "L" word has become so clique
My brother gave me a journal a couple of years back & one thing that always seems to stick out to me was the passage
" Love does hurt...but the pain you feel during the storm only makes the sunny days more special "
Yes. he's my older brother and he has a lot more wisdom that I do, but I disagree with his quote ^ .
Lonliness hurts...Rejection hurts...Losing someone hurts...Envy hurts...
Too many people get love confused with lust
The desire of love is to give, but the desire of lust is to get.
People always seem to get their emotions confused with love, but in reality, love is the only thing in this world that covers up all pain and makes someone feel wonderful again.
Love is probably the only thing in this world that does not hurt.
I’ve come to understand that love is more than three words uttered before we go to bed & wake up in the morning
Love is sustained by action.. a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day.
Love isn't material..it's energy.
Money can't buy it & sex doesn't guarantee it.
It has nothing at all to do with the physical world, but it can be expressed nonetheless.
We experience it as kindness, giving, mercy, compassion, peace, joy, acceptance, non-judgment, joining, and intimacy.
Are you really IN love, or just going through the motions?
If you're like me, Yes, times may be rough, but no relationship is perfect.
There are always some ways you have to bend in order to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater but, the love that you have for each other has to be bigger than those small differences.
Even when you think you've tried everything, and the light at the end of the tunnel seems to be nowhere in sight, fight til the very end.
Don't give up so easily because this tough moment is only going to make you stronger when a new situation occurs.
Honestly, I tried to just throw my problems to the side -- give up basically , but one of my friends told me " you know you really care when you have to try and convince yourself that you don't...never regret anything in life, because at one time it was exactly what you wanted. "
He was right!
She's exactly what I want.
I didn't have to try to transform myself in a perfect person that I thought she wanted because she appreciated me for exactly who I was.
Things haven't been the best, but the light at the end of the tunnel has to come eventually
I've come too far to let someone else feel the happiness that she brings me everyday...
It's going to take a lot of water in order for me to swallow this pride pill, but I think she's worth it
Don't mind me, I'm just venting...
