    I agree with you, it’s no fun being misunderstood and accused falsely….But when those things happen God gives us the grace to raise above and go on, but we gotta choose to go on…..we are all human and make mistakes….I too am in my 20’s and am learning patience as I deal with my sweet colicky little one and also still fulfilling my role as a wife and meeting my Husband’s needs as well….it’s hard to get misunderstood when you have been with a crying little one all day and you are tired and worn out and your patience in thin…..but God gives us strength and grace for each new day. We couldn’t live this life without Him. You will find lots of encouragement in God’s Word the Bible. Be encouraged my friend you aren’t alone.

  2. My 20s were filled with lots of these same emotions. I feel much more “settled” in my 30s emotionally, although perfectionism is a battle I fight daily. Keep working through those thoughts and feelings…it will be worth it!

    • Thanks for the encouragement – so many days I’m like “Why does this have to be SO HARD!!??!?!?!” Then I remember that I’m still really young.

    Thanks so much LeeAnn!!!!! Now I am looking forward to my 30s!!! =) I don’t know about you guys but it’s always so encouraging when you find out that you aren’t the only one that has struggled or is struggling with those emotions and to also realize that “this too shall pass” and things will only get better as experience kicks in and we look back on these days and “laugh”……Thanks for the encouragement……let’s strive to keep our focus on the Lord and not dwell on the waves! I know thats so easy to say but another thing to walk out in shoe leather, yesterday my emotions were all over the place and it wasn’t till I was getting ready for bed that I humbly realized that I had been focused on the waves and had really been putting my husband through the wringer!!! I started crying and he came over and wrapped his arms around me and told me things were going to be okay. Thank the Lord for long suffering Husbands!!!! I pray for mine every day that the Lord would bless him with much long suffering and understanding for my emotional storms he gets blasted with from time to time. Thanks again for the encouragement.

In other words, I liked whitespace before it was a cool bloggy trend. And now I’m annoyed because I hate being a part of cool bloggy trends. Even more annoying is the fact that I feel like I need to tell you all of that. See also: another day, another flaw […]
