what is true happiness? that is a really good question...i guess a good question to ask would be what is your greatest fear? i think that is what has been bothering me so much. my greatest fear:
being alone, not being wanted...
that is my greatest fear. living my life alone without that true "happiness". i think the thing that hurts me the most when it comes to past situations or my most current is the feeling of not being wanted. i have go thru my who life feeling that way. since the moment my parents got divorced it was always a battle for me. i was always stuck in the middle of their problems. it wasnt about the kids, it was how bad they could hurt eachother. hence my views on marriage and children are so strong. i WILL NEVER put my children through what i had to go thru. even when it lead to me living on my own. the root of that...i did not feel wanted nor welcome at home. so i made my own way. that is one thing about me that i do admire. if there is not a way i make a way...a most recent example...my car. i didnt have one, i worked my little butt off and got the car that i wanted and i guess you could say that i deserve. but yes i am glad that i was able to pinpoint when my anger and sadness comes from in certain situations when it comes to guys. what hurtsme the most is not being accepted or wanted by a guy that i like or hav so much respect for. i have go thru my whole life feeling that rejection and just to have it happen over and over again is what sets me off i think. i mean sometimes its not a big deal (as with ben or anteaus) because i knew they were flirting with me for all the wrong reasons, so i played their game, i flirted and left them high and dry. LoL...playing "these games" is only fun for me if i am wanting to play "the game".
i know that this is going to sound so "text book" but, ultimately i have figure out to just turn to god. i mean i wouldnt say that i am a bible hugger but i am a spiritual person. i feel that wheni am more focused and do things more to please god and not other people my days run alot smoother. and i guess i am happy, in a different type of way but i can say that i truly am happy. shawn gave a spiritual book to read. it has a quote and verse that you can look at, one each day. i try to look at it each night before i go to sleep. and i must say that it puts my mind more at ease.
Here is a verse that i have for today:
Because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.....James 1:3-4
for my most current situations i would say that that verse well fits to what is going on. it is always weird for me b/c inmy most times of need and i turn to my scripture i always seem to find one that can fit to what i need for motivation and uplifting. The lord works in many diff ways :)
so i was watching practical magic the other day (def a movie in my top 20 list) and sandra bullock dreamed up and made a potion for "her perfect guy". she was married, and he passed away but she still had two children. after all of that she was still able to find that guy. is that that way with us? i mean for me i dont have "a type" i try to stay open minded and be open to any guy that i am attracted to and that just grabs my attention. so i guess i can start to make my own list...LoL...no im not a witch and i cant conjure up a magic potion to bring him to me, but you know maybe by putting it down in words in some strange way it might bring us together if god already hasnt done so....
