Do you ever feel like you are on a road that will never end and no matter how hard you try to find that end, the road just keeps winding and winding?
If you’re currently on that road keep going, because I promise you, you will find an end somewhere. Our lives are all like one big road, when one road comes to an end another road starts. If you have ever got in your car to just go driving in the country you will know what I mean. Often times those roads seem like they go on an on forever.
In 2011 and 2012 I didn’t think the road I was on was going to end, while I had some good spots in the road, most of the road was bumpy. So much happened in a short period I thought I was going to lose my mind. We moved to Michigan because I thought the grass was going to be greener on the other side… trust me it’s not. If you are having a rough time in your life, moving won’t help nothing. It only made things worse…
We allowed family to stay in our home, we came back to a bunch of bills not paid… but we trust what others had said, and we made yet another stupid move. We allowed someone to move in with us… this was a huge mistake!
It even got my husband and I to the point where we said no more, we cannot help others if they cannot help themselves. We cannot be the ones that other people use to fall back on when they’re in a rut. We are barely keeping ourselves a float let alone help others stay a float. We decided we were not going to help no one else out, we couldn’t keep doing that to ourselves.
However, that didn’t last long. My husband and I both try to help others as much as we can, and when a family member came to us, we knew things were not good for them, and my husband and I had talked about this before, so we opened our hearts and our home. Will this be a mistake? I hope not, but if we get burned again, we can say we were there and we did offer to help.
If you have been burned in the past, don’t shut the door to helping others. You yourself maybe in a spot where you to need help, and you wouldn’t want those family members shutting the door on you, because of the actions of other family members. The road you are on might seem long, but it will come to an end and another road in your life will start back up again.
Remember there are no mistakes in life, only learning lessons.
