You think she’s bitter, but she’s broken from being deceived and lied to for so long. Look beneath the surface! It’s not you she’s upset with, and maybe she just hasn’t figured out how to make sense of it all, but she may just need your patience and gentleness. If you think about it, you haven’t always been where you are either, but someone else may not have had patience with you. It was for a reason, not a lifetime – so that you’re able to be with someone who understands you, and it may not be as easy to obtain, but it will be worth it. Don’t give up! She needs to know that you’re not like the rest. Often times, the one that thinks they’re saving someone, needs to be saved also, but they don’t know that until it actually happens.
The 3 things that you need to do to hold on:
1. Trust the God in you, and share your own fears and insecurities. There’s something about knowing that you can relate to one another, and don’t mind showing your vulnerability.
2. Keep sex out of it, until you’ve established trust. It only clouds your judgement, and places you back at square one.
3. Love her through and out of the pain.
This is both your opportunities to learn to love again, set your own rules and put the past behind you!
