There is often the tendency to settle for less than you deserve simply because you feel you aren't worth more or you feel like you can't get anything better especially when it comes to matters of the heart.
Unfortunately, I have found myself in this situation quite a number of times and even ended up regretting and wishing I never did some of these things in the first place.
Does that make me a bad person? Nope...it just shows that I am human and can be vulnerable sometimes. However, it also comes with the territory of being a single mum. Because of the various life pressures of wearing this hat there is the tendency to crave attention from the opposite sex sometimes at your own detriment when it is obvious that it won't end up in a good way.
However, what I have come to understand is sometimes we beat ourselves up over these slip-ups and wonder how we could have got caught up in such. I want to tell you to please STOP IT! No one has the manual on how to live life without making mistakes but knowing God and having a relationship with Him will make you understand that you can always have a fresh start BUT dwelling on regrets will not allow you move forward.
In my walk and relationship with God, I have come to the point where I am no longer ashamed of what I have gone through or done in the past. I have decided to allow God help me use it to minister to other people and tell them how faithful God is if we can get ourselves to that point where we trust Him COMPLETELY come rain or shine!
It is not always easy to get to this point but like I always emphasize on this blog, take it one day at a time and gradually that shaky mindset will change and you will indeed be better off for it.
