BRUISED BUT NOT BROKEN (VENTING)
Thursday, September 02, 2010
Lately, I've been going through alot in my personal life; and I'm not sure about any of you, but when I have relationship problems .... it can drain me mentally as well as emotionally. It tends to take away from everything else and I lose sight of what's really important. I become consumed with doing whatever I can to keep things together (even if it means accepting the blame when it isn't my fault); yet, I'm slowly slipping into a silent depression. I start second guessing myself worth and asking "Why Me? What is it this time?"
But I'm here to tell you that at some point in our lives, we must face the hurt and pain and eliminate it. They say the first step to change is acceptance (but for many; they walk around in denial) However, in my own defense, I've acknowledged this long ago ... so I guess I have no one to place the blame (if there's anyone to really blame at all). Sometimes things just aren't meant to be.
I say all of that to say that I need your prayers because at times this can be a bit overwhelming, but we must keep moving forward. For the past week, I've been completely off track, but it's time to pull up my boot straps and get back in the race.
I got on the scale yesterday and it read 255.2 lbs. I guess all isn't lost because losing weight or adopting a healthier lifestyle takes time. It's a gradual process. If we rush to finish the race, we will lose the weight fast, but gain it all back. Slow and steady will give you weightloss that will last for the rest of your life.
That being said .... I made the decision to post this blog because there are times when many of us have just plain given up. We become so overwhelmed with the everyday routine/stress/commitment that we lose sight of "US".
We must stay strong and keep pressing forward no matter what because truth be told; if we continue to give everything to everyone else ... at the end of the day; we'll be left empty and have nothing left for ourselves. When we do that, we're no good for ourselves or others.
I wish you all much success and prosperity during your journey; whether it be to lose 5 lbs or 500. Keep moving forward ... you'll love yourself more in the end.
Thanks for allowing me to vent.
Peace & Blessings,
