I was selfish when I first started the blog. My ex broke up with me on September 18, 2015. I was a mess. I was blindsided. I was grieving. I wanted the pain to stop by any means necessary. Hence… where the blog came from.
I was selfish in my posts. I was selfish in my approach. I was selfish thinking it could lead possibly to a career. However, it did. It took me two years to understand the impact the blog had on me. My blood, sweat, and literally tears went into creating this blog. I wanted to figure out how to serve a larger population than just myself. I still was hurting from the break-up. I wasn’t in the correct emotional state, nor was I in the correct mental state, as well. The question then is how can I help others while helping myself? I went on applying for jobs I knew I wouldn’t get instead of doing something I should have done a long time ago.
Again and what population would I serve? God was hitting me in the head the whole time, but I didn’t want to recognize it. Finally when I was let go from my last position was when I really faced the truth. I should have been doing this since graduate school; however I was chasing a dream that wasn’t going to happen.
Now starting every Sunday, it’s on my calendar so no cancelling, I will spend 2 to 3 hours studying for the National Counselor Examination (NCE). The first step in becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania. My target population is Marriage and Family specializing in addictions. I want to help when single status becomes engaged status to married status. Too many divorces in this world and if I can slash that number, let me be the first.
I’m hoping this blog will help others as well as myself in learning how to be #awesomelysingle while learning to #loveyourself so that one guy or lady will fall for you over and over again…
