That old saying, “Seasons Change.” Well guess that works in the possibly of understanding life and relationships.
We work, go to bed, and wake up the next morning and do it all over again. If we have the life that makes us happy, brings us joy, and fulfillment then we’ve reached a professional peak. If you have congratulations, some of us have chosen the difficult path to follow.
Now, add another person to your seasoned life and maybe kids. It really does depend on the life you have chosen for yourself. If your life is like mine, a constant up and down, can’t seem to figure things out, but when you FINALLY figure it out there is a massive roadblock that will not budge until you’ve figured out another way to get through it or around it.
Relationships have always been a bit of a challenge for me. I know I want to be in one. I know I’m happier when I have someone to lean on emotionally and mentally. The physical attraction has to be there from the start, if not then it’s a no go. Yet, I often feel like when the guy gets to know the real me, it somehow makes me look like less of a woman, more like a needy child. I am far from being petulant in any way. I do know how to act like an adult, my problem that I’ve just recently realized is that I beat myself up so much because my life isn’t like my friends, and I don’t have what they have. Sad to compare I know, but it’s who I am.
The seasons of my life have changed so much! I’m handling things mentally and emotionally far better now than I ever have in the past. Guess it took a complete mental break down to get help. I’ve realized that men are like the seasons as well, good for the moment, but leaves a mess or a level of destruction in their path like a tornado.
Life and relationships are like the changing seasons, beautiful at first, then complete cause towards the end. The point is surviving it all so you can make it to the next season.
