This is about to hurt your feelings, BAD. S’okay, this realization hurt mine first. Get over it.
I am not your “eat ice cream by the tub while watching chick-flicks girlfriend,”
although I can recommend someone if that’s what you need. I don’t particularly care to braid your hair, although I know how. I am your late-night, Thelma & Louise-type, Ride-or-Die, lovingly truth-telling like I need you to tell it back to me. Feel free to excuse yourself if you’re not ready. This is intended to leave a mark. We’re about to go deep.
God’s got jokes, at least with me. So deep in the midst of an end-to-end life changing transformation, one that insists upon gaining steam every time I expect it to slow down, He blows up my sense of security in a new way. I have no choice but to suck it up. In so many areas of our lives, we claim to desire change. We think we do, but it is my testimony that change occurs in our lives ONLY when we’re prepared; when remaining where you are is so miserable that the pain and fear of trying something new is less onerous than continuing to do what you have been doing….which by the way clearly ain’t yielding desired results.
