Getting Real: A Few Thoughts & Where I’ve Been

Being a Christian is hard. No doubt about it. Being a young Christian in a world that is increasingly becoming more and more secular is very hard. But it’s not impossible & it is worth it, that I can promise. Look, I struggle. All the time. I doubt myself. And believe it or not, I… Continue reading Getting Real: A Few Thoughts & Where I’ve Been

You’ll probably never read this. And even if you did, you might not even know it’s about you. You might not even know that I liked you… or that you’re “one of the guys it didn’t work out with”. Maybe you do know. Maybe you hurt me, or maybe I hurt you.

That’s right. I want to thank you, the guys that were wrong for me.

It wasn’t you. It wasn’t me. It just wasn’t meant to be.

And for that, I’m thankful.

So thank you, for not being the right guy for me. I might have thought you were right at the time, but it took stepping away…
