“So… I’ll finally be honest about this one issue that I’ve never really talked to anyone about before. (Takes a deep breath) I have a bad habit of falling for women who have the potential to be a good woman/wife or are actually really sweet but make some unwise/unhealthy decisions; poor choices.”
“I know they’ve talked about you… they’ve laughed at you.
Their only goal was to break you down… and they did that too.
They told you, you were nothing and you believed that lie to be truth…
But I’m here to let you know that ain’t even close to the truth about you.”
“Somewhere out there is a good woman… she’s looking for me and I’m looking for her… We’ll find each other someday; pretty soon, I prefer. But regardless of when and how, I feel like we’ll meet at just the right time, no matter how much our roads differ.”
“Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him.” James 1:2-3, 12 (NLT)
“There are many ways you can tell when someone’s going through. But you’ll never learn the truth unless they open up to you. My brothers and sisters there are people here for you – open and ready to hear from you. So tell us what you going through, even if all we can do is pray for you. So make up your mind, fam… What are you going to do? Stop all that faking and procrastinating… Why do you walk around with your head down, Steady Aching?”
“When I was broken and didn’t know my own identity, He showed me who I really was, slowly but surely. For a while I fought it and I ran from it… I didn’t wann’a be who He made me to be. I wanted to be someone else… I didn’t appreciate the unique things He gifted me with. I didn’t really love myself. I was always trying to be someone different.”
“I haven’t been this transparent in a while… It actually feels good to come here and write. It’s helping to get off my chest and out in the open so people will know and not just assume that I have things against them and such… I don’t have anything against anybody… I don’t hold grudges. I used to. It only stole away my peace though. Right now, I’m just going through some pains… Eventually these pains will lead to my growth in the end. I’m counting on it.”
“I’m sure a lot of people have been wondering why my Facebook profile picture and my cover photo have been changed to wolves instead of me… there’s a story to it. Two stories, actually, but I’m only gonn’a tell this one for now…”
“These days, I don’t talk much… if I talk at all. Except to my therapist… or if I share a common interest with someone or even like people who I just somehow make a random connection with… then maybe I talk a bit more. And I talk to certain individuals on a daily basis; those who I know God put in my life to help me through this time. But I don’t talk to everybody like I used to. My circle is not as big as it used to be. And it’s kind of painful, if I’m honest…”
“It’s been a while since I’ve really blogged. And I have to admit that I’m still learning what it means to be a blogger. To me, I’m just a writer. I’m not a blogger, yet. I wann’a be though… One day, I will be; I’ll have a lot more to say… Especially with all that I’ve been going through lately… which is why I’m here right now.”
