Today's writing piece is inspired by an amazing person that I got to know many years ago.
This person woke up one day recently and found herself to be stuck in an incredibly abusive relationship. The relationship ended and, thankfully, she now sees she was saved from heading down a horrible road of continuous abuse.
Soon after the relationship ended, she texted me with the news of the brake up. I called her immediately. (We live in different cities). She was not ready to talk, and I totally got that. I waited about a week, texted her just to check in and then she called me.
The entire time we talked, my heart broke for her. The sad thing is though, I had no idea it was happening. All I saw were beautiful pics of the two of them on social media and thought things were great.
I let her get it all out. I was her listening ear, and was more than happy to do so. While we talked, we both agreed that God, her angel team and spirit guides definitely were looking out for her. She's noticed little things popping up for her lately that have been pure signs that things are working out for her. I agree 100%.
When we go through major life events that tear at our hearts, we must all remember to say this to ourselves: "I will be okay. I am always okay." I say it to myself when I'm going through difficult things, kind of like a mantra. It helps me calm down and understand that I truly am okay. I also believe that I have a team on my side in the spirit world that is guiding and protecting me. And that makes me feel great.
I have no doubt she will be okay. My heart warms to know that I am someone people feel they can come to if they need to talk. I'm always a phone call, text, email, or social media message away. I even love to have visitors-as long as I get a heads up that someone is on their way.
I try to listen the best way I can. Sure, I love to hear good news, but I say, bring on whatever news. I don't judge. I just listen.
