I just read an article about people who never really succeed
in business and it resonated with me. On the one hand, I found myself in that
article and I realized that I have some things I need to change. On the other
hand, I found my ex-husband in that article too. Do two unsuccessful types meet
and decide to shack up?
This is a troubling thought. How do I change my own thought
patterns to be successful now that I am close to freedom? My biggest problem
seems to be me lack of confidence. I have great ideas that others seem to run
with but I can’t figure out how to make work. Why? What is my drawback to
I think it started when my parents became separated and my
dad left to find another family. Did my abandonment issues cloud my judgment? I
believe they did. I learned from the moment I became aware of myself (4 years
of age) that I had nothing special. I’m not going to complain about where I
have been but there is no doubt that it colored my opinion of myself. This led
to more fateful choices which fed into my belief that I had nothing to give. I
considered myself to be lucky to be chosen to be a wife. How could someone who
thinks so little of themselves sell a business plan to anyone with any
How often do we take on the opinions of others and make it
our reality. How do we stop listening to the people around us that tell us that
we aren’t important? The corporate sleaze in the article is most certainly my
ex. He has no scruples and does exactly what he desires and then expects to be
let off the hook. Where does his mentality fit into my lack of success? The
fact that he was a sleaze has nothing to do with me but, I let his lack of
morals define who I was to become.
When I tried to wrap my head around leaving I knew that my
husband’s mentality of “winning is everything” would come out and that he would
do most anything to take my kids from me. This led me to set aside my beliefs
and morals to avoid the confrontation I did not think I could win. When I did
this I lost my relationship with God.
God asked me to do the one thing I could not in order to
show me His power. In doing this, I found not only myself but my relationship
with Him. In the last year I have gained courage I never had before. I no
longer listen to the opinions of others (most of the time) and as a result I
have accomplished amazing things. I learned to put God first and let all else
rest in Him and I know that everything will be alright.
On August 21, 1879, apparitions of the Virgin Mary, St. Joseph, and St. John were said to be witnessed by 15 people at the Knock Parish Church in Ireland.
