It’s fitting that I finished Donald Miller’s Scary Close book today.
Eleven years ago today I experienced my first heartbreak. I thank God I am not with my ex-boyfriend, but I sometimes wonder if I’ll ever get married.
I appreciated Miller’s openness about his relationship with Betsy, his struggles with past relationships and intimacy as an introvert, and his successes in communication. I highly recommend this book!
“Am I willing to be hurt occasionally and turn the other cheek in order to have a long-term, healthy relationship” (48)?
I am still trying to figure out how to do relationships well. I am trying to become more aware of the walls I have to keep people from hurting me.
I know the struggle is intimacy vs. isolation. I don’t want to end up alone. I’m in the fight for a long-term, healthy relationship. That starts with looking at my own life to help myself become a healthier person (in all aspects of the word).
Anyone know of any Dating 101? Guess I’ll cue up He’s Just Not That Into You.
