Recover before you replace.

It’s important to take time to heal after a breakup because during this time you’re vulnerable in ways that can cause you to listen to your feelings. After a breakup, your vision is cloudy because you’re emotionally damaged, mentally frustrated and confused, and often stressed out. These things can cause you to see what you…

Hard truth: The potential you see may never become their reality.

Your feelings will have you seeing potential in people that they don’t see in themselves, but that potential becomes a false expectation when what you see in that person becomes more of who you want them to become rather than who they truly are or want to be… People are who they are, right now….

Don’t start if you can’t finish.

Don’t start a new relationship if you’re not over your past relationship. If you aren’t emotionally available, don’t come into a person’s life and pretend to care when you know that you don’t plan to invest yourself in ways that can build a healthy, meaningful relationship between the two of you. It isn’t fair to…

Close that chapter, it’s time for a new one.

Today is the day to put closure to those dead end relationships, situationships, and fake friendships! Stop waiting on an explanation, an apology, or for the person/people to get their minds right. Sometimes, the fact that they’ve said nothing, tells you everything you need to know. Pay attention to their actions. If they don’t care…

Fragile, handle with care: Dating an emotional wreck.

When you commit to someone who haven’t taken time to heal from their past, you are also committing to whatever demons they’re fighting. Give people time to heal from being emotionally abused and mentally mishandled before jumping into a relationship with them, because you don’t want to get into something you’re not ready for. If…

You’re not in love if you’re in fear.

Some people don’t stay in a relationship out of love, they stay because they’re in fear. Fear of being alone. Fear of starting over. Fear of losing something. Fear of the unknown, or even the future, to name a few. Love has nothing to do with fear. 1 John 4:18 (GNT) “There is no fear…

Equally yoked in mind.

If you’re depressed, irritated or uneasy with them, then you can do without them! There’s a saying, “I can do bad all by myself.” If a person is already in a bad space before getting into a relationship, they don’t need someone who will bring them down any further! They need someone who will help…

MaRriAgE iS jUsT a piEcE oF pApeR: A piece of paper worth fighting for.

I’m so tired of some people saying, “MaRriAgE iS jUsT a piEcE oF pApeR,” as a means to excuse a dead end relationship. They say, “marriage doesn’t keep a person faithful,” well guess what? Neither does staying in a relationship with someone for years, decades, or your entire life, who hasn’t made a commitment to…

Three things you should do when you’ve been played.

Some of you are dating married people and you don’t even know it. No, I’m not talking about on paper. I’m talking about in their heart. You’re connected to someone who’s still connected to their ex, and now they’ve brought you into this spiritual threesome or love triangle if you will, without your consent. But…

Is your “type” keeping you from experiencing true love?

There’s nothing wrong with having a type unless your type is solely based on frivolous things like how much money a person makes or what kind of car they drive, or how big their social circle is, or them having to be up to date on the latest fashion trends, or they must have a…
