I’ve always worn my heart on my sleeve. Good, bad, or indifferent, you know EXACTLY where I stand. I used to think it was a character flaw, but now it’s my favorite trait. Yet, sometimes I get tripped up. Sometimes I trust too much, sometimes I have too much faith in people. And then sometimes, it really bites me. Do you feel me?
I was bitten recently, and it really threatened my overall mindset and motivation. In the past, I would have really been derailed. This time though, I have really been focusing on reframing this loss into possibilities. I absolutely believe that when one door closes, another is opened, and I just need to walk through it. There’s only one person’s actions I can control, and that’s my own.
I’ve walked through that door this time, and I’ve promised myself I won’t build walls of protection around my heart. I’m going to embrace this new opportunity, and I’m going to be sure I’m focused on giving it my all, regardless of the potential consequences.
How do you manage these tough relationship challenges? Do you find yourself getting tripped up too? Don’t worry girl, I feel you. We’ve all been there. Let’s promise one another we won’t let another’s actions impact ours. Let’s be authentic to OUR hearts and slay these challenges. Let’s take those lemons and make some lemonade, babe. I’ll bring the vodka.
