Are you settling?
by Teresia Smith
Mandy Hale once said, “Sometimes it takes a little pain and heartbreak to shake you awake, help you let go, and show you that you are worth so much more than you were settling for.” When I read that quote, I thought of so many people who stay in unhealthy relationships even though they know it’s not a good situation. What does it mean to “settle”?
Letting go of the person who controlled you
Abuse takes a hold on people not just physically but mentally. Victims of abuse say broken bones heal faster than the emotional scars that last a lifetime.
A few weeks ago, we experienced some of the coldest temperatures in many, many years. During this cold spell, most plants outside withered away. Now that the coldest temperatures have passed, I have noticed some things sprouting from among the dead leaves of the plants.
Often we think of a new year as a time to change something that we don’t like or start something new. Fresh starts and do overs.
Happy holidays for all?
The holiday celebrations are in full swing. There is Christmas movie after Christmas movie on TV and they all have a happy ending.
