Not many of us have come to our current
relationships without a few battle scars. Maybe I've been
dumped unceremoniously, or two-timed, or strung along by
someone offering a magical illusion. I may have even had
mistakes of my own destroy or cripple a promising
relationship. Affairs, desertions, and other calamities
strike many of those around me. Maybe I've been spared,
but likely, I've had my own horror
Yet I find myself in another relationship. I wonder
sometimes what is going to hit me this time around, or
when it's going to strike. Sometimes, it seems I have
happiness within my grasp, only to have it snatched away
Where does all this worrying get me
though? Is it really the future I should be spending so
much time thinking about, or would it help me more if I
concentrated on where I am right now? If I look
closely at my fears of the future, I can often see that I
have many strong feelings leftover from past
relationships. Maybe it's time to find out why those
feelings are there today, and see what lessons
they are trying to teach me.
Just for Today
Today I'll try to learn one small thing
from a past bad experience, and see if it can help me
find new ways of loving and new insights to happiness.
Sometimes disasters contain miracles in disguise if I
really search for them. That is the hardest part, but
ultimately the most rewarding.
The worst thing that happened to me,
was the best thing that ever happened to me. My bad luck
turned out to be my good luck. - Anonymous
