Life comes at you fast (and everything happens for a reason).
I used to see and hear that all the time. I laughed because it normally was because some idiot said one thing and then was found to be doing another. I’m here to tell you that phrase couldn’t be truer. About a year ago I cheated on my boyfriend, the absolute love of my life. And I know what you’re thinking. If he’s the love of your life, why would you cheat? Curiosity and confidence that I’d never be caught was where I fucked up. Life came at me fast. Within a short matter of time he did find out, he left me and I was forced to move into our newly built house alone.
I had just published my second book which was on the New York best sellers list for 9 weeks, I was on a high so naturally nothing could touch me. I realized that my success meant absolutely 0 to me without him there. I thought about him constantly, I mostly stopped writing and fell into somewhat of a depression. I stopped knowing exactly what I wanted out of life, everything was confusing for me. I ended up selling my house and moving back to Ohio with my sister. I literally went from a NY times best seller to sleeping on my sister’s couch all because of some dumb ass mistake. I had to get him back, I couldn’t do anything with out him so I went to Chicago , where he was staying and I let him know in person how much i loved him. He didn’t immediately jump back into my arms and he’s not 100% trusting of me yet but I’m working on proving myself to him.
I basically said all this to say, if you want something, you’re going to have to work for it. Mend your relationships before it’s too late. If you’re meant to be, like I think we are, then nothing will stop you from being together.
And I’ll never let this man go ever. 💋
My posts going forward won’t be so cheesy, I promise. X0X0
