So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. Matthew 7:12
You know, before my hubby and I were married, I was a single non-christian girl. It’s a different world out there, and I’ve learned a few things.
1. There is nothing better than a GOD fearing man.
2. GOD is always first then everything else and..
3. Have FUN!
Sometimes, many times we take life to seriously and yes somethings are detrimental and we need to make, on a frequent basis, decisions that affect our daily lives.
But one of the best things in following Christ is totally relying everything on Him. Casting those burdens upon Him.
Knowing Romans 8:28 and establishing, His word on our hearts.
As a woman within a relationship I have found that GOD gives us wisdom on so many levels and on so many different issues that may arise.
But this post is not about Marriage it’s about Relationships. I know what you are thinking, what’s the difference? Well relationships first start with ourselves. To be quite honest I’m tired of seeing woman who are in unhealthy ones.
Let me clarify…I have had the great honor and pleasure of consoling women through breakups, through relationship related decisions, etc.
One thing that I find many women suffer from is the fear of being alone. I think this is a very unhealthy view of relationships in General. Because the most important relationship is the one with You.
If you’re afraid to be alone, YOU have to confront this issue. Because once you face the fear of being alone you are free to be…well, not alone.
I’ve found that many women may think they know how they should treat others but forget how to first know how they themselves should be treated, especially within a relationship. Any type of relationship.
Too many women look towards a man or the relationships they have with others, to dictate their self worth. This is a distorted perception of self worth and it must be addressed.
Exhibit A: Once I got rid of the fear of being alone and actually learned the hard way, that it is better to be alone than to be with someone who does not love you, I began to appreciate myself more, in turn appreciating others more.
I began to have peace with the thought that ‘being alone is not the worst thing in the world’, which reflected in my decisions especially with the opposite sex.
Every woman and man, should have an opportunity of totally being themselves with just them, learning who they are, and not being afraid of being alone, because the truth is the opportunity to be with someone will always come.
I hope that we, as individuals are looking to develop healthy relationships.
I hope as you take this journey in life that you accept who you are in this moment because GOD accepts you no matter what. Learn to be and deal with your own self in a loving and kind manner and you will find that you will have relationships that are more healthy and you will also have the confidence to say “No, I will not allow to be treated this way”. You will be able to not accept certain relationships that can deteriorate you that prevent you from having healthy relationship, because you have a healthy relationship and viewpoint of yourself.
Let go of the fear of being alone, because with GOD, with Jesus you are never alone.
Just my point of view,
Until Next time! Ciao!
