Sometimes opposites shouldn’t attract, and should never, ever, ever come in contact.
The byproduct of such engagements often tends to be problematic. This knowledge in my younger years would have certainly kept me from making some of the life-altering decisions I made.
We can sometimes get ahead of God’s answer to prayers about our lives, by growing impatient and making our own choices….or in some cases, our ignorance leads us into falling for the snares produced by the deceptive plans of others (ignorance in youth and lack of social exposure).
These types of events run recklessly in teenage and young adult relationships because most have yet experienced life outside of the bubble they grew up in and trust. Anything new and better is foreign to their minds which also leads to entrapment and premature decisions about some very serious life choices like marriage, children, education, and I can go on and on!
This topic is one I’m so very familiar with because it is something that forced me to grow up way too fast!
Journaling for many years was a means of recovery and healing and has lead to the preservation of some very interesting stories in one of my books, that I will share in this blog.
Some of the stories of my life. Strap in and hang on for the ride!
Judge me, if you must, but also be ready to learn whether you are in one of my true stories or not. (The names have been changed or omitted to protect the guilty and innocent, too!)
