when winning is losing…

You know that feeling when you get what you want just as you realize you don’t want it anymore?

There are relationships that I’ve fought hard for just to realize I shouldn’t have won in the end. Maturity, right?! Wrong. I realized I shouldn’t have won when it blew up in my face. It’s always best when God teaches you a lesson through someone else’s misfortune. Not because you were too ignorant to see the truth without the chaos.

How did this happen? I didn’t trust my gut. I let my emotions lead the way. And, then I saw my love wasn’t love. It was familiarity and lust wearing clever disguises.

And, I was too focused on the win to see that I didn’t want the prize.

Be careful!
