The Love Experience 

Leave a comment

When he asked the waiter to display the coffee beans on the dinner table to say, “I Love You, (after our second rendezvous), I thought to myself, ok… you don’t know what you’re getting into entering my realm.  It’s too early to romance me with those three little words, but okay, let’s go. Show me what you got!


As time passed on, he was macho, confident, and adventurous, but not perfect. He was charming, nice, and passionate, but not a leader.  Suddenly, things changed for him, he probably didn’t forsee a great loss, he didn’t see a relocation in his future.  He became even less fortunate in this love experience.  I knew he wasn’t “the right 1” but I wanted to ride it out til the very end.  I did. 

I used to beat myself up about being in a relationship for too long.  I would try to walk away, but end up going right back because I wasn’t ready to live without him.  

He was amazing to me.  But I kept saying, I am trusting in you Lord.  I knew one day I would be able to say,  “You can walk away.”   

I have to admit, it’s hard to let go when you love someone. I knew I loved him from the very beginning, because I had that experience in love. 

I’m grateful for the release!  It’s a release with peace.  No need to go back, because I know that I gave him the best love I had to give.

If you are in the love experience, there’s a valuable lesson for you.  Trust yourself to go through the process and if you need to release, just trust in the Lord.  He will release you.
