AUTHOR'S EXCERPT:

They teach us early that the goal is marriage and babies, in that order. No one ever tells us where WE fit in to the equation. We are raised to believe that love from external sources is the only kind that matters. Which, I guess that’s fine, if your story happens to work out that way. You know, the lucky ladies who seem to go from the womb to the wedding bells without the detours of disappointment, dysfunction, depression or abuse. 

Here’s my thing, it seems to me that the fairy tale sets us up for instantaneous feelings of failure when we get older and have to face the fact “that’s not my story”. In reality that is almost nobody’s story, but they leave that part out. The only thing I can think of that might be worse, is to wait for years for your life to fit the fairytale and then when you finally find it, you realize the shit was never real to begin with. Just like that, it’s snatched away from you. No warning, no preparation and there is not a damn thing you can do about it. You are left to figure out on your own that it was just that, a fairytale. 

They say that hindsight is 20/20 but I’m here to tell you, real shit, no matter how many times I looked back could I have ever been prepared for what I thought was the man from my dreams to walk out and leave me to live a nightmare. Let alone to fall for the same dumb shit a second time. The best I could do, was redefine what love looks like for me now and going forward. The other thing is, I ain’t even gonna lie, that shit was hard as fuck! There were days I didn’t think I would ever be able to trust myself, let alone a man ever again. 

That was then, this is now. I’m still me, granted, I have been forever changed by my experiences, but the good news is I refused to be reduced by them. No one told me that I had to love myself before I could really ever love anyone else. Like everything else, I had to learn that love lesson the hard way. Now it is a matter of me figuring out how to do that? How do I redefine love, and manifest the right man for the job?
