Two Sides

There are two sides to every story but sometimes I find people are so quick to judge that they don't take the time to ascertain the other side of the story. For years I have felt this is the case of my entire life. For over forty years there have been few who have really cared or loved and appreciated me. It got to the place where I allowed myself to stay in situations that were not healthy. It was so much a part of my life that I remained even when things were difficult and even though people hurt me. I’m realizing that I can walk away from places and situations that are not healthy. No longer do I feel the need to stay. God has shown me that it's okay to leave and find healthier places to be. He wants me to take care of myself. He values who I am and knows that not everyone will appreciate and love me but I don't have to stay in a situation that tramples me down and destroys who I am as a person. People can judge me, point fingers and talk about me but until they take the time to talk to me and understand my story, I can let these things roll off my back. When God tells me to do something I must do it despite what others think. So, I’m learning to walk on, hold my head high and find people who will build me up, support and love me for who I am. I will no longer stay in unhealthy situations. God is showing me that I can find places where I am accepted, loved and appreciated.

God loves each of us and He wants us to be happy. Are you allowing yourself to stay in unhealthy places and situations? Maybe it’s time to close those doors and open new doors to healthy and positive places. May we not be afraid to walk away. There are always other places for us to be.
