I would say that I have been “done” with this for quite some time, but I do believe that things of this nature will always be a work-in-progress. This past year has been wonderful, but it’s come with a lot of struggle and hardship as well. My husband and I overcame each and every obstacle and issue together, but we also had to find personal strength to see us through. My improvement came in the form of really, truly getting back on track with God. From there, I had to stop being a control freak, and honestly give things to him, stop worrying, and learn what it means to really have faith. It was hard. I won’t lie. However, enough practice made it come naturally.
Not to be misunderstood: I was never a negative person, and many people never knew the amount of things I have gone through in my life because I am such a cheerful, positive person, but it is easy to think of the worst scenario with certain people or situations and that is what I sought to resolve. Even with some of the most difficult people and situations in my life, I don’t assume the worst. I don’t naively, or blindly trust necessarily either, but I give a fair chance even when it is undeserved. 2 years ago
