My gift in life is to encourage people. It’s always been that way. Whatever I do, I do to encourage people. I feel like there are just too many discouragers in the world telling us who we cannot be or what we cannot do, and I refuse to be one of them.
I’ve been privileged to hear so many people’s stories, some sad, some happy, some amazingly fulfilling, others seemed like a bump in the road… well perhaps because of this blog, and my books, I hear more of the negative stories, but I don’t mind. For some people it can be discouraging to hear so many sad stories, and sometimes I’m tempted to be sad for the people, but what I’ve learned in so many years is that if we keep doing the right thing, no matter what, it will all work out well…
People have talked to me about heartbreak, about breakups, about lost loves, about pain… serious heart wrenching pain, and a year later, or sometimes a few months later, there is hope, things have gotten better, usually because no matter how hard it was, people chose to do the right thing… yes many of the people that contact me are women, but I get contacted by quite a few men too… which reminds me that we are all hurting, we are all doing our best, we are all trying to find that joy and peace and fulfillment that always seems so near, but often seems just out of reach…
And so I write today to encourage you. I want you to know that no matter what it is you’re going through, keep doing the right thing, because I have faith that things will work out. Don’t be discouraged, don’t listen to the thoughts that say you will never feel better, or things will never get better, and don’t make decisions based on the pain… The pain will pass eventually, but the decisions you make now… well they have consequences… sooo… leave that boy who says he only wants to be friends with benefits, you deserve better, leave that man who has a wife, or a baby mama that he ought to be committed to, you deserve better, leave that man who beats you down, physically, or verbally, or emotionally, you deserve better… (the same goes for guys too)
I really really believe that no matter what it is you’re going through. I repeat no matter what it is. I have faith that it will work out well…if you persist in doing the right thing.
