Why do we stay in meaningless relationships? Let me rephrase that, why do we stay in relationships that mean something to us but not to the other person? Why do we stay in relationships with people who have harmed us or treated us badly? Why do we stay with people whose purpose for our journey together is long gone? Are we that desperate for companionship, friendships or relationships that we are willing to try and salvage the relationship even after the other person took out the scissors and severed it?
We have to stop doing this. We are spending valuable time on relationships that we could be using to work on ourselves. That time can also be used to nurture the positive relationships that we already have but are taking advantage of because well you know, those people will always be there.
I know what it feels like to be in a relationship that is no longer serving its purpose. Meaning, neither one of us are growing from each other’s interaction and we don’t intentionally keep in touch with each other. For some of us these are things we can deal with and that is okay too. If you are okay with it don’t complain later on when you had the opportunity to change it. However, one thing that you should not have to deal with is when your peace of mind is being jeopardized. Don’t allow people to drain you. You DON’T owe them anything. You can walk away without an explanation or if you need closure and value the individual then feel free to give them your reason for walking away and do just that. Walk away sis. Do so knowing that your peace will be intact. You deserve to live your best life sis and to live it in peace.
Who is She?
I am a Wife, Mom, Daughter, Full Time Employee, Friend and Change Agent that has been succeeding, failing and winging it for years. Although I am not perfect, I do know that God has been guiding my path along the way in each journey. No matter how good or bad my experiences may be or have been, I know they serve a purpose. What is that purpose? To show you that you are not taking this journey called life alone.
Over the years I have met phenomenal women with stories that you would not believe unless you heard them yourself. I created the SheSpeakz platform as a way to “Speak Life” into ourselves and those around us. SheSpeakz is a way to tell our stories and encourage women to embrace their journeys. At times it may be uncomfortable but there is someone who needs to hear your truth. I love meeting other people, listening to others about their life experiences, making connections and helping others make connections. When women collaborate with and support other women, amazing things happen.
Some of my passions are leadership/personal development, empowering women to be themselves, mentoring, public speaking, baking, traveling, writing my blog and spending time with my family and friends.
I currently reside in the San Antonio, Texas area with my spouse and our two active children.
My call to action for you as a reader is to embrace who you are and know that you are enough. We all can use a little improvement in some areas of our lives but don’t let that stop you from loving yourself and being the best you. I also ask that you take the time to encourage and support one another. In this delicate time, we can all use positivity in our lives. I also ask that you are intentional about making a positive impact in the lives of those around you and in your local communities. Use your talents that you have been given to change the world one good deed at a time.
You can communicate with me on the following platforms:
