This #MondayMotivation quote hits a little close to home for me. I’m hoping that it helps you all like it’s helped me to become a better person emotionally and mentally.
Transparency moment: I have been single for a little over a year now and I hate it here! Well, not all hate. I have a love-hate relationship with it. It’s hard sometimes being alone especially when you weren’t used to that after a long time, but but the past year
Now that I’m opening myself up to the IDEA of dating again, I realized that this year, especially the months spent in quarantine, forced me to look at my problems: my insecurities about my looks, my communication issues, my trust issues, etc. I had no choice because they confronted me almost every day as I sat by myself and thought, “Well dag, why am I not good enough for anybody? What’s wrong with me?”
Now, I realize that this time has been ESSENTIAL for me to get myself together. Not even working on my issues, but working on strengthening the skills and passions that I have. Still rough at times, but I’m becoming a better person for myself, the people that are currently in my life, and….whoever God decides to pop into my life later (ughhh, can it PLEASE be sooner than later?!).
Anyways, enough about me. The point is, you have to face and handle your problems before they begin to interrupt or hold you back from the happiness that you claim to want. That means a lot of prayer, reflection, writing, THERAPY, etc. to work through your own insecurities/mental or emotional issues so that you be the best you can be.
