Three True Things

First, I want to say thank you to everyone who commented and reached out about the last post on dating. It’s not easy to put it all out there sometimes, and knowing I’m not the only one feeling that way, helps. So thanks!

Next, I didn’t really know what to title this post, so, I thought I would be straightforward.

I’ve mentioned here that since I returned from Germany/Ireland, things have felt…weird. And, that’s still the case, but in talking to a friend about some challenges she was dealing with, I told her about my new “Three Things” theory.

It means that no matter what obstacles or issues you face, friends, family, job, boyfriend, apartment, etc., you know three true things about yourself that will never change.

So here are mine:

  1. I am good at my job and smart. No matter what I do in my career, I know those things
  2. I would be a good girlfriend or partner
  3. I’m a great friend (that’s not narcissistic, it’s the truth).

I know I could be a better daughter or granddaughter, but finally, I know myself well enough where the above three points will always be true, during good and bad.

Although, I have a few guys who could dispute #2 and know several people who weren’t ready for #3, hahahahaha.

So what’s the point of knowing these things? They are the guiding force for relationships I have and how I guide myself through life. And I have to be okay to know that not everyone will get it.

And when I told my friend this, even counting them out on my fingers, she looked at me wide-eyed and was like, “you go girl.”

Fuck yeah, go me.
