Choose YOU & Save Yourself the Heartbreak

Posted: Thursday, July 6, 2023. 5:21 pm CST.

By Sgt. Sheena Jones: Just Like lots of little girls, I was raised to believe in happy endings.

That if you respect and treat those you love fairly then you would live a life free from hurt. That a fairy tale ending includes a Barbie and a Ken.

Well since then, life has knocked me down many times looking for that happy ending. I have loved, lost love, and chose the love of others over myself.

My focus has never been on me but on those I chose to love. I have come to realize that it is those whom I have chosen to put before me who brought me the most pain. I have been insulted, assaulted, betrayed, and neglected by those who claim to love me.

Should I have chosen me first, I would have saved myself all the pain and tears. Life has given me both blessings and pain. I am still able to love but most recently I have been concentrating on loving myself.

Only so will the harsh lessons in life ease.

Somewhere along the way of loving everybody else – I lost “me”.

Time to get back on track. I am choosing “me” and saving myself another heartbreak.
