Did I ever tell you about the first guy I was in love with?
I’m sure I did, I tell it to everyone I meet.
I was so sure he was the one. I remember going to singles’ ministries in the church I attended at the time, and while everyone asked about how to meet the right guy, and how to know when they had met the right guy, I always asked for what you should do when you know you have met the right guy.
See in my mind I had graduated from “searching.” I had found and been found, and I was ready to move on to the next step. You can imagine my disappointment when things didn’t work out.
I was sure that I would never meet another like him.
It was painful, it was hard, and I cried myself to sleep many nights… but you know the funny thing that happened later? I met so many guys that were like him, and so many guys that were better for me than him, that I had to really seek God to show me the right one, since they all seemed pretty good.
During a breakup it may seem as if this guy (your ex) is the greatest thing since sliced bread. It may seem as if you will never laugh again, be happy again, be as physically attracted to someone again, or be as mentally stimulated by anyone else like this again. But it’s not true…
In the words of Jim Collins, “Good is the enemy of great.”
There’s a great guy waiting out there for you. And remember all it takes is just one.
So tell me, how are you doing? Talk to me.
