Healthy Relationships REALLY Do Start With You!
By Gwendolyn Tennard Owens
My life’s work is to empower women to be great mothers, leaders, survivors, conquerors, businesswomen and sisters. We ARE our “sister’s” keeper. Women we must walk in faith and purpose. We must uplift one another. There are so many of us who have no direction, who are in pain, who are unemployed and in abusive relationships. Extend yourself to a woman who is in need.
I have learned that, “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. “Joy comes when you surrender every heartache that you are holding onto that is poisoning your life. Joy comes when you forgive the unforgivable. So, allow “joy to come in the morning” by releasing those heavy weights.
When a relationship ends, it’s for a reason. That person was placed in your life to help you grow and learn more about whom you really are and give you wisdom. God does us a favor by removing people out of our lives, but yet we hold on. If the relationship does not compliment who you are and help you grow, then the answer is right in front of your face. Don’t ignore the signs unless you are a “sucker” for heartache.
