We feel so much pressure to commit to ‘forever’ after just one cup of coffee, that we burn our tongue trying to drink it quickly.
We forget to breathe, listen, or respond, then we run for the hills at the first opportunity, deciding the answer must be never!
wrecking my brain trying to figure out why my "Mr" isn't responding to my calls or whatever the case maybe.
Sleeping with a heavy heart and having a glass of wine to try a numb the heavy heart.
Maybe we just need to remind ourselves that, for right now, the only promise we need to make is that we won’t make any promises, just yet.“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow.
God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.” Elyse Murphy is a writer, pastor, and international speaker. I am in this season where I've gone on two dates so far with a gentleman who has been pursuing me.
There’s absolutely no flow to it, and, though it’s cute to watch, you find yourself stifling a giggle every now and then. There have been some big swells in the music, moments of elation, just like in the movies, where, if you were watching from the outside, you would think everything was about to fall into place.
But for the most part, my love stories have taken a turn for the worse. So what do we do when our hope has been overtaken by heartache?
Added to that, I didn’t know how to talk to any boy that didn’t share the same last name as me.
To be fair, the floodgates consisted less of actual boyfriends (and official changes in relationship status) and more of text messages and awkward encounters, unrequited flirting, skype “dates”, late night phone calls with declarations of my undying butterflies, awkward breakups that weren’t really breakups, and… When I think about my journey so far, it can be a little depressing if I start to compare.
After all, I’m not exactly “Mary Jane” who has always known how to do a pirouette, meeting her soul mate at four-years-old and getting married at eighteen, waiting until her wedding day to hold his hand, of course.
This I have watched it going through from one relationship to the next.
Thing is, many of us young women, are going around looking for validation, we don't even give ourselves time to know who we are.
And there’s a reason I have so many stories, which are increasingly entertaining for my friends during a girls Taco Tuesday night.
