Breakups are my thing. Whenever I step into a new relationship, the only thing I expect out of it is a break up within a couple of months. I know what is gonna happen right after a breakup because I have become very familiar with the whole process. No matter how used I am to breakups I still struggle. But thanks to Steve Harvey who is always by my side through every breakup. I would always go back to Steve Harvey’s words of wisdom to get through the heartache of the breakup.
Steve Harvey is one in a million man, his sole purpose is to empower women, support them, and keep them moving forward even in the darkest days. In his book “Straight Talk, No Chaser” he addresses women who suffer from the side effects of a break up, gives them the power to rise to better place, and tells them that sometimes the break up is a blessing.
Here is what he says:
“I know it’s hard when you leave someone you’ve loved: it’s painful, emotional, and leaves a mark on your heart that feels like an open wound. But there’s a blessing in the storm, I promise you. You just have to recognize it and claim it for yourself. All too often, women stay in relationships because they’ve got some serious time invested, even though there is constant fighting, you’ve got very little in common, and you’ve grown in different directions. I know people who are married who don’t even like each other, but still, they hang on. I ask, what are you hanging on to? Know that if you just let go, the chances are that you’ll wake up in peace. The arguing will be gone. So will the fighting. You’ll get to do what you want to do without having to cater a man who doesn’t appreciate what you’re doing. First, though, you have to remember what you’re breaking up from. If you’ve been cheated on, lied to, abused, left to spend all your time alone, forced to constantly question his whereabouts, then you’re not leaving much. Let go of it and claim your blessing. You may be hurt, alone, and scared of getting back into the dating game, but this is the alone time you need to better position yourself for what the Creator has in mind for you. What he has in mind for you may be just waiting for you to be free and available. The blessing is that you can reinvent yourself – be who you want to be instead of who you had to be in order to make the past relationship work. I can truly attest to the blessings that come when you become open to change.”
Much Love Steve Harvey,
May You Always Shine!
