This past weekend I went to Georgia to visit family and friends. As always I had a great time visiting everyone. On this particular trip I was reminded of how these trips often get me thinking. I find myself reflecting on various aspects of life.
This trip helped me to further flesh out this discovery of myself. It wasn't pretty and I didn't want to admit that I was allowing people from my past to have such control over my life, but I was. This made me angry at myself and made me realize that I was holding myself back. A harsh truth is that in order to have a healthy relationship you must be willing to open your heart to others. This runs the risk of getting hurt but it’s worth it. I can see that in my relationship with my husband. He is someone that I trust as much as I possibly can trust a person. I hope that this realization will help me with my new friends and old. It’s time to move forward. I don’t want the past to dictate my future anymore.
Do any of you struggle with opening up/trusting others? How did you/do you deal with this?
