You thought he was the one, he seemed to tick all the boxes. It was like a dream come true until you woke up to a far from perfect reality. You suddenly realised he was never what he seemed. That he took advantage of your love and goodness. That you were naïve and wanted a fairy-tale so you held on for so long, hoping your dreams would come true.
But they never did. You dove straight into the nightmare and you are only just getting your life back together.
Is this you? Have you been hurt by past relationships and are now weary and tired of dating?
You’ve probably been told that there are great men out there, that God will give you the man after his heart, but deep down, the pain makes it so hard to believe.
Dear friend, don’t lose heart. You are not alone in this. I have been there and was in my own cycle of pain for far too long. At that point, it seemed like I couldn’t move on.
If you’ve ever felt this way, I need you to know that God is still there. He was there even while you were hurting and will be there through your healing. We need to let go and trust God.
“Pain will leave you, when you let go.”
LEARNING TO MOVE PAST THE HURT
A big part of moving on would mean being able to date again. I know after your past relationship, you were probably a hermit, always at home and only venturing out, on rare occasions, to church and family gatherings.
But you can’t live life this way. I know what it did to me and wouldn’t want that for you. You need to live, to make your life count, again.
