  1. I hope speaking it draws it to you. You know I’m over here shaking my cheerleader pompoms rooting for you.

  2. I reached the same epiphany about 10 years ago. I wanted a relationship, goddammit, and I wasn’t going to be happy until I got one.

    So I did, and then another, and another, and then another………….and honestly, none of them ever proved fruitful for me. I had my second epiphany when I realized that I was accepting less than I deserved in a relationship because I wanted one so bad.

    After my marriage breakup, and before Lissa, I was in a relationship that bordered on demeaning for me, and while I had my own issues at the time (and probably should have given myself more time to “heal”), I continued on, simply because it was better than nothing, or so I thought. As a result, that relationship caused more emotional damage than ending my marriage did.

    I was fortunate to find Liss, as she was basically in the same boat as I was. We’re both learning that slow can be good, and that the euphoria of the honeymoon part of relationships can dwindle quickly, and that working at going beyond the honeymoon state is what makes relationships last longer than most, who never get beyond 2-3 months.

    Stay the course……….

    • Ah yes. It was an interesting road to get there, but I have definitely reached that second epiphany level.

      Hope springs eternal, crossing my fingers, wishing on a star and all that jazz… 🙂
