Friday Q&A: Talking About Relationships part one.

Happy rainy and snowy Friday I can’t believe its snowing in April but again its New England nothing surprises me anymore!! I am almost done with school countdown is on! I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. XX

If you know me you know I was in a horrible relationship at the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020. I have been asked by a lot of you how I knew it was bad, how did I get myself out of it. If I can be the person to tell you don’t make the same mistakes I did then my job is done. I wish someone told me at the moment I needed to get out. I am healed and I able to talk about it without emotion. We all have been in that bad relationship so I am thankful you guys asked how I got out of it.

1. How Long were you and you’re ex together ?

Thats a loaded answer we were together the first time, yes I said the first time from September 2019-December 2019. We were trying to get back together from March-July of 2020 and that didn’t work out. To answer your question we were together for a total of 6 months.

2. Did you know you were in a toxic relationship ?

In the beginning of the relationship I didn’t know I was until probably 2 months into it I started noticing signs.

3. What made you realize you were in a toxic relationship ?

I saw signs that weren’t normal and my friends and family who are super close to me kept making comments and things weren’t adding up.

4. How did you get yourself out of it ?

I got myself out of it through strength and prayer to be completely honest.

5. What bible verse did you clung onto during this time ?

I really clung onto Philippians 4:13-  I can do all this through him who gives me strength. This was what got me through the darkest time.

6. Was there a song that gave you clarity?

Yes there was a song that gave me clarity during this time it was Sara Evans A Little Bit Stronger I remember waking up to that song on 92.5 and just knowing that I needed to let go.

7. Did you ever think there was a way out ?

If I am being completely honest yes I knew there was a way out but I didn’t know what the way out was and I am a firm believer of everything happens for a reason.

8. How did you recover/heal ?

I started doing things for myself it was the small things. I started gaining my independence back, but I couldn’t have done it with my friends, family and God and prayer really helped me through.

9. What is one thing/quality you look for in a guy ?

One thing I look for in a guy would be humor and how he handles stressful situations because that says something about his character. A quality I look for in a guy is how strong his faith is and how he responds too hard things.

10. Are you scared to date again?

I’m not necessarily scared to date again. I just want to date with intent of marriage so guarding my heart is a huge thing for me.
