“Why do we stay in awful situations? This is the question that I woke up pondering. Why do we stay with emotionally, mentally and physically abusive people? Why do we submit ourselves to toxic unhealthy church environments? Why do we settle into office cultures that break our spirits? Why do we hold onto friends that don’t have our best interest at heart? Why do we stay even when God gives us a way out, time and time again? Why?!?!?!” ©Simone Holloway, 2019
“But How?” my hearts screams out. “How can we return to a place I never got to. I almost got there, I thought I was there but I failed… I never got there.” In love, He grabs my hand and whispers, “Your only failure would have been to marry someone who was never designed to love you. To procreate with someone who did not have the capacity to be a father and to enter into a business partnership with someone with no integrity. Babygirl, you did not fail. You succeeded! For you chose your future over your present and you chose what was hard over what was easy. You said Yes even though the cost was your heart. You, my dear, can return to this place…” ©Simone Holloway, 2019
what’s the point of being hurt if you gain nothing from it I learned that pain can be used to fuel healing to a lowly spirit what’s the point of making mistakes if you repeat them over and over again I learned that in over to move forward I had to live different, my friend a lesson…
