Facing our challenges head-on!
Challenges Women Face

March 1, 2016

Dear Julie:

I have a problem or you can say a situation that I can’t understand. I have a friend which we dated about nine years ago and I admit that I was wrong for cheating on him. Okay over the years we both had someone, even had a baby of our own with other people not together. But we always stayed in contact with each other. As of today he says he doesn’t love her but he stays around for the baby. He also tells me that he loves me.

I always let him know how I feel about him, that I love him, and that I want to be with him. But he tells me that we can work on it. I love him so much but I feel like if you love someone, no matter what, you will go where your heart is. So what do I need to do? Or what I need to tell him? Do I need to date and forget about it, or just wait? -Confused


Dear Confused:

Yes, you are right. If you love someone, you go where your heart is. Whatever else he tells you, he is staying with the other woman and his baby. That must be where his heart is, AND where his responsibility is.

I’d advise you to move on. Date others and forget about him. Your Prince Charming is out there. Trust God to bring him to you. Wishing you a happy and fulfilling life!

God bless,


Remember, friends, as challenges come our way,we can face them head-on
