I had brunch with my friend and we discussed support systems.
Look, the people who form your support system, not just the ones you surround yourself with, are important.
You can have people surround you and not have them be your support. I am writing particularly about the people who form your support system.
The ones you confide in, the ones you listen to, the ones that encourage you.
In the year 2019, I know that I would have been completely broken if God hadn’t set helpers and support system ahead of me.
Choose your support system. Align your self with people who can help you and shoulder you. Everyone needs people. No one is sufficient in themselves. It is however God that gives the right counsel.
The other thing we talked about is relationship. See the people you tie yourself to in relationship and marriage would to a large extent determine your spiritual, emotional, financial, academic and career well being. It can even affect your health.
So do not stay in a managed relationship. I am not speaking of marriage here, for the bounds that guide marriage are completely different. Once you have been joined under God to someone it’s a different ball game.
But you see, a relationship should not be endured unnecessarily. You need to find someone that aligns with God and you. If you keep making excuses in a relationship, those excuses may follow you into the marriage and become more obvious.
So do not set yourself up to fail.
Choose your support system and relationships wisely, choose them guided by God.
If these people are not aligned with God you would have unnecessary struggles.
I hope that you have great support system and that you choose relationships that help you thrive rather than drain you.
