Openly Private - My Relationship

The fact that I'm writing this post is a bit irritating. I've always been somewhat open about my life and relationship simply because I've gone through some things that have and may continue to bless others. 2013 was a crazy year to say the least. Unfortunately, not everyone is as happy about your happiness as you are. People harbour bitter and resentful feelings instead of allowing God to heal them so that they can move on. I know it's not easy to get over a failed relationship/marriage, but to continue trying to cause turmoil in another's life if nuts...especially when the person trying to do damage has been in a new relationship for give or take two years and has a new child on the way. The phrase "misery loves company" will never go out of date. 

I've learned to be much more private with my family and myself. I love to blog about my little face people, but I will no longer discuss my relationship. My latest post about us was about our decision to be celibate. While our relationship isn't perfect and we started from a crazy place we try to make sure that God is now the center. I received blog comments from his ex and/or others working with her about me not being as transparent as they feel I should be, and they were rude and disrespectful. For that reason our relationship is off limits. It has become a reality that a private relationship is much more successful. We will have our issues and there will always be people who will try to sabotage us because their own life is miserable, but WE will be between us. I might include him in photos, but other than that he won't appear. 

It's a beautiful thing to share the love you and your mate have for each other with the world. It feels good to know that your mate is proud of his relationship with you and will shout it from the rooftops,  but take it from me and keeps all details to yourself.


  1. I agree 100%! I literally just had this same epiphany. Everybody's not in your corner and many want to see you fail. Letting others into your relationship is a recipe for disaster.... that includes family. My step sister wasn't happy about me dating my boyfriend because of our age difference but never expressed it to me. Instead, she plotted and schemed to try to tear us apart. I wish you, your relationship, and your family nothing but the best.

    1. Girl yes! People really try to bring you down instead of trying to build themselves up. I can't believe that your own sister would try to sabotage you. I haven't always agreed with my siblings relationships, but I never went out of my way to break them up. That's crazy! Thank you for you well wishes!
