It’s been a while since I’ve blogged anything for a few reasons:
- I only want to blog when I have something to say and for a while there … nothing relevant / thought-provoking came to mind. I mean … there’s only so many times a girl can talk about the “ratchetness” of reality television
- Career + Mommyhood + Being the perfect Wife (#shedidthat) + Pregnancy = all-consuming. There’s almost not enough time in the day to bathe let alone come up with something pithy to say to you guys
- I’ve been working on self which requires silence. You can’t hear God if you’re constantly talking.
So, while I probably lost some faithful readers, I needed this time to adjust. And you should always know that I’ll only speak when I truly have a topic that will benefit you, or at the very least, make you laugh. And moving forward, the posts may not be very long. Just enough to get you thinking.
Here lately I find myself back in the midst of a relationship issue that’s giving me … pause.
Ever felt like something wasn’t quite right in your relationship (friendship, marriage, GF / BF, brother / sister, etc.), but you can’t quite put your finger on it? Actually you can put your finger on it, but the “issues” are small and appear unworthy of attention … until you add up the issues and the time you’ve been dealing with them up and you realize … “SHIT! We’ve been dealing with this for a while!”
Yeah … welcome to my world. My favorite thing to say to people right now is that I’m “dealing with real world sh*t” in my life (like raising kids, juggling my career) and thus I’m a bit slower to catch on to things. *Ye shrug*
How do you address an issue with a loved one that you know is there, but have no idea whether your loved one is feeling the disconnect? How do you even broach the subject? To have a formal sit down is too formal. To bring it up randomly during a get together is too … random. When a relationship means the world to you, how do you address an issue that could potentially cause irrevocable harm if not addressed? Especially when you’re dealing with someone who would rather chew off their own left arm rather than confront it? (I mean hypothetically … which must be said after that last Scandal episode with Olivia’s Mom. Good Lawd!)
That’s it. I don’t have the answer. If I did, I’d tell you. I want you to tell me. Hit me back in comments or tweet me (@AskThePRGirl). This is important to me. This time … I need your perspective. I mean, this is no one-sided relationship. You’ve got to pull your weight! 🙂
I look forward to hearing from you. And once I’ve sifted through all of the comments, I’ll be sure to come back to you all with the solution I chose and it’s outcome.
All the best, AskThePRGirl
P.S. I’ve missed you. We should chat more 🙂
P.P.S. Don’t I look cute pregnant?? #SHEDIDTHAT (photo courtesy of @JennBinsPR)
