For many of us, 2016 hasn’t been that friendly of a year. From multiple celebrity deaths to any personal obstacles, most Americans are ready for a “reboot” on their lives in 2017. Lucky for me, I’ve already received my “reboot,” except this time, it’s with my whole outlook on life.
In a previous post, I mentioned how I’m struggling with handling awful customers over the phone. While I like to think of myself as “tough,” I know deep down I’m far from that description. I let my emotions dictate my life, and want to run and hide from any tough situation. What I needed to examine, but was perhaps to afraid to, was why do I get so afraid? Why do I let my emotions take over? Why do I run away from uncomfortable situations?
With the assistance from my perfect boyfriend, Cody, and with blessings from God and Jesus Christ, I was able to make my breakthrough. I was able to figuratively burst from my cocoon, shed my skin of negativity, and blossom into a self-loving butterfly. I realized that the traumatic relationship I lived through with an ex-boyfriend from years ago was still haunting me to this day, since I never went to counseling or therapy once I got out. I know I’m sensitive, but what I needed to figure out was why was I letting negativity cut me so deeply? I’ve found my answer, and could not be happier at my revelation.
Given what I went through and where I am now, I would be utterly foolish to not believe in God. I was with an awful human being of a boyfriend for over three years, and thought he was the end of the road for me and I settled. Once realizing I don’t have to live in the box my mind put me in, I broke free and now enjoy life happily with my current boyfriend, who is my one true love and an angel sent from our Creator.
Moral of the story? Don’t be afraid to examine yourself. Yes, have a path in life, but be open to other directions and opportunities you may not have considered before. Lastly, don’t let the devil lure you to something that’s looks good, but not morally right. Let God take the wheel of your life, and learn to love yourself.
