In the past, heartbreak was the formula I adhered to. I would go from one damaged man to another hoping to gain a lifelong commitment. Needless to say that didn't work. I sought out damaged men because I myself was damaged. But I'm so grateful that I've developed the strength to break away from that vicious cycle.
I was reminded of my past relationship blunders by an old journal I found tucked away recently. At the age of 24 I was sick & tired of heartbreak and had lost all faith in love. Yet, I was also amazingly self-aware and able to pinpoint the part I played in each failed union.
Father God, I thank you for granting me wisdom, discernment, and a strong sense of self awareness. If not for these gifts I would still be an unhappy mess who lets men determine my mood & worth.
Praise God I no longer frequent the Heartbreak Hotel :-)
