    Wow, another great podcast! I don’t have much to say because everything was so true. I liked what Jay say about discernment and learning about asking the Holy Spirit for help.

    It is hard when someone changes on you and they don’t bother to inform you of the change. But if they do, you have to discern it yourself and ask for what guidance on what to do.

    Some of what was here had been said before about women having standards, being intentional with relationships, and making sure you and your partner’s goals are aligned from the beginning. Having experienced a recent breakup it was good to hear these things again. I know and knew them, but I have to remember a relationship isn’t all about me. I may be fine and it just . . . wasn’t our season.

    I like the continual reminder that not everyone is meant to be in a relationship. It’s hard to hear that you may not have the love and fulfillment in the ways that many experience, but it doesn’t mean you can’t know profound love and have an excellent life. If you walk with God and are choosing about the energies you allow into your life, it will be a good one.
