Welcome to Relationship Tuesdays.
This is my space to delve into relationship issues we all deal with but a lot of us just can’t seem to figure out how to get past. I will pick a topic and give you some good information about it. Comments from the peanut gallery are always welcome.
Last week I talked about baggage and how holding onto it makes it very difficult to let anyone into your life. I come from a mental health background and I know that dredging up our issues can be painful. So today I am going to give you a pick-me-up.
I just want to remind you of a few things. First, we all have issues so don’t think that you are alone or that there is no one doing worse than you. Believe me, there is always someone else going through what you are going through and worse.
Second, whatever baggage you have I assure you that you can get rid of it or learn how to manage it. Yes, it can be hard work but it is definitely worth it.
Third, we tend to overexaggerate our flaws and issues. We can be our own worst enemies when it comes to dealing with our problems because we feel like everything we do is the worst thing on earth. While I am sure your baggage is an issue it is not the end of the world and there are people who love you in spite of whatever you’re dealing with.
What I want you to take away from this (if nothing else) is that no matter how deep your issues are you still deserve to be loved. If you take the time to really deal with your issues you will be able to change the problematic relationships in your life and make them better.
On Thursday, I am going to share a point in my life when I was at my lowest. It will be a very serious share but I want you to see where I was and how I got out of that deep, dark place. Hope to see you there!
