A Lesson Learned From Oprah

On Oprah's show today, Tracey Gold talked about her drunk driving experience. Towards the end of the interview, Oprah said something that really hit home. We all have our issues in life. It starts off as a whisper and we push it away. It comes back in another form, but yet we still push it away. We ignore it until something major or even catastrophic happens which finally wakes us up to reality. For Tracey, it was the need to satisfy everybody else except herself. She didn't listen to her inner voice telling her not to drive when her husband insisted that she drive.

In my life I've had issues of cheating boyfriends. My ex-boyfriend cheated on me left and right. I saw signs of it, but chose to ignore them. I didn't think that I could find anybody better. My self-esteem and self-worth were at an all time low. I stayed with him even after finding him in bed with another woman! The last straw was when I overheard him talking to another and telling her that I meant nothing to him. I finally had my wakeup call.

So now I have this issue with trust in my current relationship. Ultimately I'm working towards putting all my trust in the Universe and letting Him handle the situation. There's absolutely nothing I could say or do to change my boyfriend's path in life. He has his own issues and tests to live out. I feel very empowered knowing that whether or not I choose to stay, I'll be ok. Love will always be in my life.
