Who would of thought I would survive the end of a relationship and come out the better because of it? This is my story.
I was not one to think of finding my Mr. Right nor my soulmate. When I did get into a relationship and ended it after years of unconditional pain, it became one of the best lessons I could learn in life. My battle wounds and scars I endured and continue to wear will not keep me from continuing on with my life and meeting people who I can pass on my experiences to in this journey of life.
When a relationship ends, it’s not always due to a lack of not giving it your all and trying to give everything to make it survive. I got lost in him. I put myself aside and shifted all of my focus onto him. Life was good as long as this scenario continued to be this way. I would give my heart and soul in everything that mattered to him and go all out to show him just how incredibly important he was to me. It was never appreciated or reciprocated. Once reality set in and the process of letting go began, I quickly realized how strong I was and I learned about surviving the insurmountable. I learned I didn’t have to prove myself to anyone. I learned it was fine to make mistakes that I didn’t have the forethought to see. I learned it was fine to walk away from a situation knowing that I didn’t do anything wrong, but everything right. Life was not fair at the time for me, but I decided I was going to keep moving forward and not lose my sense of worth and peace of mind. I was going to make wiser choices and be the recipient of a peaceful and joyful life.
I took life’s lemons and made lemonade and I’m treasuring each and every moment. I chose to do what was right for me and not what was easy and make change for me happen.
