Like most girls my age, I have had quite a few failed relationships. Since I have somehow survived breakups that I thought were devastating, I decided to sit back and look at my dating habits, as well as my personal habits. What is the one thing I noticed? In most cases, I was giving myself FULLY to the relationship, and it was not always reciprocated, at least that is how some of them appeared. What is one thing that I did not notice? How little I was paying attention to myself and my needs. So, upon multiple hours of thought processing, and a little bit of self-evaluation, this is why being single may be your best bet.
As I write this, I am prepping for my trip to Dubai/Japan, so I think I can pretty much tell you exactly what I am doing…right? I do a lot of travel within the United States, and I also do a lot of international travel. I have pretty much gotten the travel/packing down to a science. I truly rely on three things for all of my packing needs. So while I am in the midst of this packing disaster, let’s get into the items.
Let me just tell you, growing up is not very fun. In fact, you have to deal with everything that you do…rather you want to or not. I have had some pretty unfavorable events happen in the past couple of months, and I think for once, I have actually learned a lesson. My mother would be so proud. Since a lot of us are going through different situations where we may or may not be at fault, I thought it would be a good idea to talk about the importance of a reality check. Especially a personal reality check.
