My life has been full of its ups and downs. Throughout it all it has been crucial for me to BELIEVE that things will turn out ok. I believe whole heartedly there is a reason for everything. Sometime we just don’t know the reason while we are going through it.
Currently, it has been extra important for me to remain calm and know that things will work out for the better. As I mentioned in my recent post, I am going through a divorce. This is not my first divorce which makes matters worse for me. I feel that much more of a failure. As my 32nd birthday approaches I wonder why can’t I have successful relationships. I do not blame the men I married for this, I think the answer is in me. What drew me to these men at the given time? Is what drew me to them then, what drives me away from them now? Has anyone else dealt with this?
I know I am not the only one that puts pressure on myself for having failed relationships. Actually just the other day, a friend of mind said “I think I am not good at relationships and I may be destined to be single and childless for the rest of my life.” We put so much pressure on ourselves, we are our own worst critic. Why do we do this? Is it our upbringing, peer pressure, or our culture?
When I have a moment where I get down on myself and think how did I get here, I stop myself and remember to BELIEVE. I believe that everything will be ok. I believe that everything happens for a reason. I believe this is just a lesson on the journey of life. I believe in myself.
As you go through life and you have moments of sadness, resentment, frustration, anger, etc. Remember to BELIEVE….
