A Dead-end is a Perfect Place to Turn Around

image (5)1I know what it’s like to be in a relationship that is a complete waste of life’s breath.

I used to semi-exist inside these relationships convincing myself, “it’s not that bad” or…

“it’s better than my last one.”


But sometimes we do nothing. Why?

In my case, I was lazy and I was looking for shortcuts and easy outs.

Talk about losing yourself bit-by-bit and day-by-day!

Living like a coward hurt. The self-disappointment creeps in slowly…

Yet, quickly becomes a way of life.

If you’re brave, smart, or lucky enough to get out, the hope is that you’ll have the courage to ask yourself some tough questions.

I asked myself:

1. Why did I stay?

2. What was I looking for?

3. What was I afraid of?

4. What are some common patterns throughout my past relationships?

5. Do I still doubt myself?

6. What do I need to do to be stronger?

7. Am I willing to do better with my life?

8. Do I believe I have what it takes to live my definition of a good life?

Of course, asking these questions was just the beginning.

Answering them can take a lifetime if you play games with yourself or believe your own hype.

If you’re wasting away, avoiding reality or worse yet, avoiding yourself, remember:

 Sometimes you really don’t need to call a friend for advice. You know what you know.

Burying your head in the sand doesn’t look good. Think about what part of your body is up in the air.

Insanity is repeatedly doing the same thing and expecting different results. Try something new. Release some fear.

Acknowledging your weaknesses helps you evolve into a better you.

Your glorious future is waiting for you.

You’re one-of-a-kind and exclusive. Not everyone will like you, and that’s ok.

Growth can be painful… but only for a short time. Things do get better and…

Joy cometh in the morning.

Reclaim yourself.

I answered these 8 questions and learned a lot about myself.

Not all of it was pretty, but I worked through it.

Getting honest with yourself and asking the hard questions is never easy, but it’s well worth it.

Taking a long, hard look at the patterns in your life that

haven’t been working can help you begin to make positive changes

….and there are no shortcuts to that.

I’m hyper, don’t have TV, and enjoy making all my own blog graphics.
