Life has a way of repeating itself sometimes. Unless we recognize the patterns and make a change we will have a hard time progressing and becoming what we really want to be. I noticed this when I was married to my kids' mom. And I noticed this again when I had my first official boyfriend after my divorce.
I was told by many people that I needed to take some time and "find myself" before settling down following the end of my 10.5 year marriage. I thought I did. I went on a handful of dates on the nights I didn't have my kids. I met a few boys here and there. And I had a little bit of fun. But only for a few weeks. Because you know what? It quickly became exhausting. I was tired of having the same conversations with people I'd meet over and over again. The superficial conversations were only so exhilarating.
