The Value of One

Often times we get so caught up in wanting to be with someone that we tend to forget about ourselves. We get so wrapped up in the idealizations of what we want that we lose focus on what is currently standing in front of us. I’ve been there and have done that, in fact I’m doing it now…and it sucks. It sucks because I let the most important thing slip away from my focus: the value of me. Me, ME, ME, ME, ME!!! It happens and I know that we are all guilty of doing this, we get so caught up in what we want or the other person that we forget about ourselves and how important we are. We lose focus of what matters, and in this crazy and hectic world we forget to focus on us. Me being the selfish person that I am, saw what I wanted and let my mind run wild, and for the last two years, on and off, have been forgetting to value myself more in the situation than what I do. I matter, You matter, and the quicker we all realize it and start to value us more in our own lives I believe that things will turn out better. There is value in each and every one of us; but it is up to us remember it, to realize it, and to make us and our lives that more valuable with the choices that we make and then I believe that life will be more enjoyable and less stressful.

My Realization…

After making a life-changing situation within the last couple of weeks, I have had a lot of time to think about what it is that I really want. I know that it’s time to not just sit back and let the chips fall where they may but for me to look at the situation in it’s entirety and figure out what went wrong and make a better, more informed choice in the future. I think at times we can have the right mindset to do what we know we need but then things happen and we get sidetracked by our feelings and then before we know it we end up all over the place, emotionally and physically. The next time around in my relationship, when I am ready for it, I want to be able to listen to that voice inside that lets me know that where I am is either right or wrong. Too often we let our heart lead us into temptation and before we know it we are falling all over a cliff and can’t stop ourselves. This time I want to be able to stop myself from falling and realize what is going on…
