Reality Check as defined by Merriam – Webster is something that clarifies or serves as a reminder of reality, often by correcting a misconception.
I am a dreamer. I get lost in love. I always look for the best in people and situations. I am overly loyal to people in situations that I know could be detrimental to my well being. I am optimist who sometimes lives in a dream world full of false hope. That’s me 💁🏽
Facts, reality checks are a way of life for me. I constantly take account of situations and people in my life. In my world these checks are necessary. I have the tendency to romanticize situations in my life. It’s a horrible habit. So I check myself often.
The importance of a reality check is quite simple: it saves you a lot of heartache and pain in the long run. As women we sometimes operate on what we want and how we “feel” instead of what is real. We listen to words and ignore the actions. We get lost in the thought that we can change a situation or a person with our love 😒. We must learn to watch the signs. Listen to what people say and do. Learn to access situations and people often and if it’s harmful to you WALK AWAY.
I am a walking testimony of the empowering feeling that you get from walking away for people and situations that no longer serve you. You don’t have to be loud about it. You don’t have to offer an explanation. Just walk away with grace, take the lessons that you have learned and apply them to your life.
You got the juice now ❤️
