Dear Trusting Men,
I’m sorry about your friend.
About a year ago I broke up with my ex who was my closest friend. He wasn’t christian and it wasn’t the same. It would be fair to say we were pretty awful to each other, and when we did break up I was devastated to find that the image I had painted for myself of this idyllic relationship that I was in, was just a picture.
I didn’t want to trust people again either – because what if people turned out to be fake just like he was?
Then I met my best friend. And over this year of working on myself and being close to good girlfriends, trying new things and putting guys on the back burner I accidentally started going to church regularly again.
Your worth is not determined by how fast you can get into a relationship after you break up with someone
Your worth is not determined by how fast you can get into a relationship after you break up with someone who you had trusted for years. Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeears. If you’re struggling to trust people it is probably for a good reason, because we were given emotions for a good reason.
If I had to give you a tip for getting over that, it would be not to worry about it so much! Enjoy all the other things that God has for you and then when the time is right, someone else will come along.
