THE GOOD BOY BRIGADE - Nobody's Perfect
Let's Say Some Nice Things....
*A note to readers: If you have abused family members or have addiction issues, this article is not for you.
Well we all know that we all have our own wounds from our own life experiences. We have all had our share of disappointments and it seems to get a bit more "complicated" as we get older. Not one of us is alike and this I feel is what makes the world go round! I mean who wants to hang out with someone just like them? NOT ME! "Hello ME, let's talk about ME!" ha
One of my favorite sayings is "Pobody's Nerfect" and although it is very simple and I have seen it on merchandise, it really makes sense doesn't it? Hmmm? I mean how many times have we found "faults" in others that we love or "loved?" I can answer THAT one for you! MORE then you probably remember! Let's think back to how many arguments you had with a partner or "ex" where you insulted him or her in the middle of the "heated moment" and started pushing buttons that you know you should not push. Well my hand is up! Is yours?!
Well, we all grow up EVENTUALLY but sometimes it takes us a little longer to see what kind of mess we got ourselves into. Some people learn from their mistakes and some people don't. Some people love and crave drama and some people run away from the situation altogether. Looking back, I'm not quite sure what scenario would have been better? Maybe running away is better then staying and hurting someone for the sake of causing pain or not dealing with your own. Who knows? I guess that is the "trial and error part!"
So today I thought I would say some good things about men that I know or have been involved with that were not "perfect" but had or have BIG HEARTS. Today we will give them a "pat on the back" for atleast sticking it out and trying their best, even if they failed miserably. ha ha
The Good Bits...
Let's hear it for the boys (or men) that stuck it out or are still in their marriages or relationships for 10 to 20 years or more. We all know that life is not easy and not everyone can have "everything" in one person, but we need to appreciate the fact that some people "stick it out nomatter what" or as long as they can depending on the circumstances in the relationship.
Lately I have been around a lot of these sort of "boys." Quite a few of them stayed in long relationships or marriages and they tried hard to make it work. Eventually in most of the cases, the woman left but the point is that even when there were problems or issues, the men "stayed." In a world full of uncertainty I take that as a "good trait" and if you are someone I describe here, this is for you. "Your heart was in the right place" and atleast you had the balls to commit! BRAVO! Welcome to the GOOD BOY BRIGADE!! Now, here is your REWARD!!!! CHOCOLATE CREAM PIE! You like? I hope so!!! I put a lot of LOVE into this dessert! AND I am only giving you one piece so you don't feel like you ate too much! Capiche? ha
GIVE THE BOY A BREAK....
So, whatever happened to you or nomatter how bad it got, remember the good times and the fact that not everything works out the way you want it too. Try to rid yourself of anger cause we all know that it really doesn't help things. All it does is create more drama or chaos.
So with that I would like to talk about what makes a man or "boy" attractive. KINDNESS, RESPECT, DEVOTION, LOYALTY AND LOVE. And even if your marriage or relationship ended on a sour note, atleast you tried!!! And that makes you a primary member of the GOOD BOY BRIGADE!! WELCOME!!!
I hope you stay awhile.....
