Yes I never experienced any long-term relationship. I am not going to cry on that. I never had love long enough to have a mother-in-law! So many of my friends would love not to have a mother-in-law!
Let’s spin life circumstances on their head and keep joy in our hearts my friend my sister!
By the way, the mother-in-law I almost had was the best woman in the world 😉
Any thing is possible my friend my sister. I don’t want you to feel sad because you apparently lack something. We’ll get through the pain my love. We’ll smile in the rain. we’ll dance the frustration away. We’ll fly on the grief. We’ll always rise. Always. Don’t give up. Hang in there because we are in this together. Lots of love my friend my sister.
I love watching Marie Forleo videos on youtube and she has an amazing message about rejection. She explains that “Each rejection brings you closer to success” (check out her Instagram account @marieforleo). It is true that many famous writers were rejected first. I totally get it and I teach to my children every day that, in life, one should never ever give up.
Today, I wonder if the same can be applied to romantic love. I used to be unable to handle rejection. The first time a man rejected me by not being available despite his words, I tried to commit suicide. With each rejection by men, I got better. A few years ago, I thought I would die when a man I loved left the country. Nevertheless, I chose to act differently this time. I turned on an amazing yoga video by Adriene called “Yoga For a Broken Heart – Unconditional Love“. I did it crying. I did it every day for a week. I felt transformed. The pain became bearable.
Recently, I met a man and thought there was a connection between us. He said he would keep in touch with me, but he didn’t. However, I am not falling to the ground in pain. I decide to shift my perspective. I wonder if the reason he is not writing to me is that he realized that his intentions were not very healthy and that he does not want to hurt me. Because he had quite deep conversations. Once again, being rejected does not mean that there was no love, it means that the other person is not ready nor good for us at this time. I feel like blessing him. I choose to take his rejection as an act of love and protection.
