We were created for relationship...to live isolated brings sorrow and despair...
yet relationships are the hardest thing for all of us, whether in family, in marriage, or in friendship. It is a daily struggle for all, but always worth the fight.
We believe that we could face things far better with someone alongside of us, encouraging, supporting, advising, loving us through the very roughest of times. But, sometimes, circumstances in life have a way of forcing us face hardship completely alone. That is where I found a deeper, richer, incredible relationship with God because so often, it was just HIM and me. Sometimes, it didn't feel like even HE was there. Years later, I realized HE was there all the time.

Relationships within the family...
Dealing with yourself... become your own best friend...
I Cry - Getting over the pain of a relationship ending, moving on, letting go
Ice Princess - When pain in relationships cause you to close yourself off to others around you
Together Forever - What would do if you had to sit face to face between you and you, when you were a child? What would you say?
Daddy's Girl - The father~daughter relationship and how it affects all other male/female relationships
I have come to the conclusion... through reading, experiencing, and discovering ... that one MUST find their identity through Christ... believing that you are fully accepted and pleasing to Him who died for you. Together with His unconditional love, your ability to strive to be the best you can be, finding your life's purpose and using the gifts that God has given you to help others... brings more peace and joy into your life that can't be taken away... It is also very important to learn to forgive yourself. Not one of us is perfect. People around us judge us from their perspective of what is going on, or by what they think they would do in our situation. I think that 100% of the time, if they were really in our shoes for as long as we, and they had the same strengths, weaknesses and character that we do, we are doing far better than they ever could have. Carry on, incredible moms and dads. No one cares more about your family than you do.
