Why is it so easy to walk away from what we say we love? Why do we let pride get in the way of what we say we desire to only be unhappy with the choice that we’ve made?
In the past I have walked away from a relationships because of my pride, and occasionally having too many family and friends in my ears, to only look back and want to kick myself for not trying harder, and not fighting for what mattered to me. Then, I realized the things that I was allowing to become an issue in my relationship weren’t really bothering me, but were things that I had been taught were a problem by people who weren't in the relationship. What I learned is that people will always have an opinion about someone else’s life and relationshipsbase on what would work for them, their own fears, or negative experiences.
We all fall victim to involving others in our relationships when looking for answers. We ask our friends and family the important questions instead of asking ourselves or the person we are in the relationship with. If you are grown enough to be in a relationship, then you should be grown enough to say what you need to said, to whom you need to say it to, and to ask the questions that you need to ask without fear of the answer. Two important things to remember in any relationship- 1. You shouldn't be in a relationship with anyone that you are afraid to talk to. 2. No one can have a opinion about your relationship, but you and the person that your are in it with. What worked for someone else may not work for you and vice-versa.
The greatest moment in my life was the day I realized what was really important to me, and I chose to take responsibility for my life, my mistakes, and my heart. I was willing to stand up for what I wanted no matter what the outcome, because I couldn't go through my life wondering “what if?” I stood up for what I wanted and the outcome was more amazing then I could have expected. From that moment on I have fearlessly moved forward never looking back, and never being afraid to express my feelings to whom I need, and how I needed. I learned that I didn’t need to listen to the outside voices, but I needed to trust my own instincts, and open and honest communicationwith the one person that I needed to talk to.
Our dreams, our desires, and our loves are all worth staying the road, and not allowing others to distract us from our path.
Are you on your road?
