Relationships

A question was brought to me tonight. Why do some people find their significant other early in life and others struggle through many relationships in hopes of finding the right person? Someone close to me just broke up with her boyfriend after 2 years of dating. Not only dating but she moved across the country for this man. She dropped her life in Columbus to pursue this relationship. Got a new apartment, a new job and a new life just to see what God might have in store for her with this man. Well, that relationship has come to an end and she finds herself in utter despair. Where to next? Does she leave her newly acquired life only to start over again at home? Or does she continue her current life even if it wasn't what she would have chosen for herself initially?
I don't have the answer for her and sadly, the answers may not be easy to come by. All I can do is pray for wisdom, that God would lead her in His perfect way. My words of advice for her are better now than later...not much consolation, I suppose.

  1. Oh, that stinks. Dating is NOT fun. And the early aftermath of a break-up -- especially a serious relationship like this one sounds like it was -- it horrible. The only sure thing is that it gets better, and that the right things to do will become clear as time goes on.

  2. It seems a lot of people I know are splitting up. How do you know when the other person is the right one? What happens when you thought they were only to find out much later that you were wrong?

    P.S. I have no idea how I found your blog, but I like it. :)
