Re: My Rant For The Day
I understand your comment about rejection. I was feeling particularly down last night. I was volunteering at a bartender at a St. Patrick's Day event. I couldn't help but notice all the couples. Some of them had their kids with them. When I looked around at these "perfect families", I couldn't help but ask myself "What is wrong with me? Why can't I have that? What is so wrong with me that my husband left me and my infant son? What do these women have that I don't have?? What is so wrong with ME?".
But, then, I snapped back to my senses---in reality, this is not about us. WE are not the ones that are screwed up. Our exes are screwed up. We were willing to recognize our faults and improve for our loves. We know what it means to love--to forgive--to love with all of our heart and soul. Our exes don't. They are so selfish--so self-serving. If they continue on this path, they will NEVER know what it is like to truly love with all our your being. However, we actually have a shot at true and lasting love again. We know how to love. ...and one day, we will know what it is like to be properly loved by someone else. Our future is sooooo much brighter than our exes. We just have to build our strength and make it through this rough patch.
...as a side not, after my little mental "pity party", I ended up having a really good time. I won an award for getting the most tips--so that made me feel good about myself! Do something that makes you feel good! It will do wonders for your attitude.
