How often do we find ourselves in relationships that just don’t work and no matter what we do or how hard we try, it just doesn’t work.
How often do we force ourselves to stay in a relationship because of our children but find that the longer we stay in the relationship the worse things get?
Sometimes we just need to open up our eyes and accept what is right in front of us.
I know it is hard but unfortunately it is the truth. We have to learn to accept that we cannot force something to work if it clearly doesn’t.
I know that there are many women out there that stay in relationships because they feel like if they leave, they have no where to go.
Ladies, if someone mistreats you whether it is physically, emotionally or verbally, that is a sign for you to leave.
If you stay, you are showing them that this type of behaviour is acceptable and eventually you will start losing your self worth in the process.
No one has the right to make you feel unworthy or unwanted unless you allow them to and you shouldn’t because that is how they gain control over you.
If you take away their power they no longer have control.
I know that there are many of us that are guilty of gossiping and passing judgement on others when they break up or get divorced but the truth of the matter is that no one really knows what people have to endure behind closed doors.
Reality Check: Everything people see is what we as the people want them to see.
Every day we see millions of people smile on social media but what we don’t see is the pain behind those smiles.
No one wants people to see their hardships, they only want people to see their successes.
Always remember that trials and tribulations is God’s way of preparing us for a new season. So if we keep on having faith things will start changing for the better.
Never settle for anything less than you deserve.
Know you worth.
Stay true to yourself.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: If the key you have to unlock the door doesn’t fit, there is no way you can force it to fit because that key belongs to another door.
Sometimes we have to leave people behind in order for us to move forward in life.
