Before I get into a rant about love. I would like to let Marzidoats that she needs to email me so I can mail out her prize. Also, stay tuned next week - there will be a birthday surprise. Okay, on to my ramblings.....
It's Wednesday and time for another leap of faith. Actually, today is just me ranting so you have my permission to leave, grab a beverage and a snack, peruse Facebook-do whatever you want. I'm just warning you that you will miss my views on leaps of faith regarding love. If you can live with yourself, then I forgive you. If you are curious, sit back and listen.
A few years ago, I was down. Not just your normal down but just about as low as you can get, heading towards the gutter down. I was in a toxic relationship with just about every person in my life. I hated myself and everyone around me. I KNEW that there was no one for me out there and then I met my future husband, OMP. You see, if I didn't take a leap of faith and give him a chance, I would have never met the man of my life and pretty much have the most perfect life in the world. Here's the deal. There is NO REASON that you deserve to be in any toxic relationship-this includes friendships. If you are not feeling 100% awesome when you are with a person than it's not good for you.
See, here's the thing that gets to me. I get so frustrated when hearing that relationships are complicated. That they are hard work. The people that preach this are full of it. If you have a healthy loving relationship, it's a breeze. It is definitely not work. Compromises are a part of every day life but they should in no way curb who you really are, unless of course you are an ass, in which-you need to quit reading this and get some therapy. Not one day that I have been married have I ever thought my relationship was work.
Also, give people a chance. If I had not taken a chance on OMP, I would have missed out on the best person ever. Sure he has quirks-so do I. I would never think of changing him. So what if that person isn't your exact idea of perfection, I'm betting if you gave them a chance-they might prove you wrong and if they aren't the person of your dreams, move on to the next. Don't drag it out please-that's just ugly and boring and not fair to anyone involved.
Now if you are still reading, here's what I want you to take with you concerning love and leaps of faith. 1-You always deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. 2-Take a chance on someone. Who knows, they might be your very own OMP. Love is always a leap of faith-never give up.
