Remember how I said some of these ‘truths’ are going to be a little more difficult to share? Well, this would be one of them. Just so you know…
DAY 7 – SOMETHING YOU NEED TO FORGIVE YOURSELF FOR
It was so drilled into my head by my parents before I even started dating that if a guy really loved you, he’d wait. Well maybe so. But what happens when you reach that stage? It’s not easy to just turn those feelings off. I just wasn’t prepared enough for the situation.
Now, thankfully we’ve made a wonderful life since and we were lucky enough to not deal with an unexpected pregnancy long before we were ready. So, I should be able to put the past behind me. Not so – I still feel so much shame about it and don’t like telling people who ‘made the right choices’.
It’s easy to tell people that ended up pregnant as teens, but I feel everyone else will judge me. I judged people before it all happened to me. And I’ve come to realize it doesn’t just happen to the ‘bad’ girls – it can happen to anyone.
So there you have it – the one true thing I really need to forgive myself for.
