So, what finally woke me up from this unhealthy way of living?
My last relationship. A few months after it had ended, I had a moment of self-reflection and realized that I had been repeating the same pattern in relationships over and over again for years! They were not healthy because I was not healthy!
I finally wanted to be mentally, emotionally and spiritually healthy. It was time! So I spoke with my mom and decided to call a Christian counselor who I had heard was phenomenal. I’ll never forget the first time we met. I sat down on the couch in his office and he had me open in prayer and for once in my life released my true, honest life story to him and Him 😉. I felt safe and I completely trusted him. I was finally on the path to healing. I had no idea where that path would take me (Gods’ path), but I knew I was ready because my way was NOT working. It was time to surrender my life over to God and let Him lead the way. It was time to stop running and avoid the challenging work of becoming healthy (Oof it’s a lot work)! I really had no clue what was in store next.
My point for sharing this post, is that no matter what you have done or where you are in your life, there is always hope. It is never too late to turn your path around. For me it was truly being able to find someone who would listen and not judge, accept and encourage. I found that in Scott and God! 😉
