“God doesn’t give you the people you want. He gives you the people you need. To help you, to hurt you, to leave you, to love you & to make you the person you were meant to be”.
I know this is true. Now more than ever.
I’ve been helped.
I’ve been hurt.
I’ve been left.
I’ve been loved.
And every experience has brought me to where I am today.
The helpers helped heal me & opened my eyes to the fact that I can’t & won’t always be able to do everything on my own. And that’s okay. It doesn’t make me weak or vulnerable. There’s actually a lot of mental strength in the desire to want to help ourselves & it’s not always easy to find that desire. When you find it, embrace it & let the people in who want to be there for you to help you get there.
Those who hurt me taught me a lesson & showed me that I’m a lot stronger than I ever believed. They taught me that pain is temporary & that the potential to grow & learn from it is immeasurable.
Those who left me made me realize that we don’t always make the perfect choices the first time around & that sometimes, one door closes so other better opportunities can bring light to our lives.
Those who loved me & stood by me taught me that REAL love is unconditional & doesn’t depend on circumstance or mood.
As rough & hard as my experiences have been, they all happened for a reason. And today, I’m living proof of that.
