Life is full of blessings and tragedies and we are responsible for how we respond in both cases. We have to do a better job of accepting our part when we participate in madness and dysfunction. We have to remember that when 'we know better, we do and are better'. I cannot blame the other person in the relationship for hurting my feelings, when I know that is exactly what the other person is going to do. We have to do a better job of getting and staying in touch with that 'thing' that tells us something is not right. Trust me I know there are some people who make it their mission to make someone else's life miserable or to bring them hurt, harm and danger. I know that at the end of the day, 'we all want to be loved'. And sometimes that need to be loved causes us to do some things, accept some behaviors and ignore some signs that over time could be detrimental to our very existence. We may not die in the flesh, but our spirit and souls leaves us wondering why.
Accepting the fact that we are responsible for teaching people how to treat us, we must take the time to teach ourselves how we want to be treated. It is never too late to break generational curses and to start living your own history. All things happen for reason; God does not make mistakes.
If you find yourself in a situation that is not allowing you to not only live your best life but to find or define your best life, then it is time to make some decisions. You may find yourself feeling alone or isolated. You may find that you don"t have the strength to go it alone. You may find that someone just came from where you are. Whatever you find, remember the decision is yours to make. Which also means the responsibility is yours to take and the consequences are yours to accept.
Until next time,
Be Blessed, Sisterfriend
