What If You Made a Mistake in Love?

SO, WHAT DO YOU DO IF YOU END up with someone, only to find out later that it was a huge mistake?

Maybe you were caught up with the romance of the whole affair and did not take the time to really get to know the other person. Maybe you had been single so long that you were afraid to be alone again, and you just wanted to make this relationship work. So, you ignored some of the warning signals (and we all get them). You let some things that really irked you slide, hoping that the person would change for the better if you just gave them some help and support.

So, you kept seeing that person, and you went along with the relationship just for the sake of having a relationship. You thought that you were saving yourself from embarrassment, if others saw you were still “together”; but inside you were not happy, because that person turned out to be a real monster that made your life miserable. Could this be your story? Can you relate to any of this or something similar? Are you still in this kind of situation?

Perhaps you went ahead and married the person, bought assets together, and had children. What do you do now? Do you stay in an unhappy relationship because you made a mistake?

EVERYONE MAKES MISTAKES, SO THERE’S NO REASON TO beat yourself up about the situation. Sure, you may feel bad about the poor choices that you made in the past; but you should not wallow in the past. Yesterday (i.e. the past) is gone, and it’s time to embrace the new day. And in order to do that without regressing to your old ways, you need to deal with the issues behind the decisions that you make.

If you need to see a counselor, do that. There are many qualified counselors that can help you to deal with your feelings and work through the issues. Get recommendations from family or friends who you know and trust. If you need to get help of any kind to better yourself or your future, get it. There’s no excuse for staying in the same place if it is damaging to your mental, physical, or emotional health.

YOU MUST LOVE YOURSELF ENOUGH to want the best for you. If you don’t love you, it will show. It will show like a walking advertisement to those who would misuse and abuse you. If you project a negative image to the world, you will most certainly attract negativity. And that is no way to move forward or make progress in your life. So, do what you need to do to become the best you.
