I was watching TV one day during my “me time” and stumbled upon “Let’s Talk About, Pep” the VH-1 reality show featuring Sandra “Pepa” Denton of Salt-n-Pepa fame.
Last I hear and saw, “Salt” Cheryl (James) Wray is actually a born-again Christian, who’s preparing for her first gospel album.
Pep, on the other hand is living a very interesting life. After 4 years of NO SEX, (which she mentions, quite often on the show) she’s ready to find a good man, fall in love and it appears, break this streak.
Along the way, she and 3 other “girlfriends” who are also living the “Single Life” allow TV cameras to follow them on their search for Mr. Right.
Needless to say, as you can imagine, they run across lots of Mr. Wrongs.
While, I don’t set my alarm to make sure I don’t miss it, I actually like the show and can count on it to give me a great laugh and lots to ponder as I walk down this journey of “Singlehood” as a Christian Divorcee.
Of course one of her friends is a recent divorcee in her 40’s who appears to attract “Fine, young things” or should I say “Cubs” (lol) But again, definitely gives you so much to think about.
When is the right time to even “think” about dating?
As Christian Divorcees, should we even consider “casual” dating?
What if you really have no desire to even “play those “dating” games”?
As I’ve shared some of the intimate times in my life, I’ve also heard from those of you, who say it’s hard to even think about “loving” someone again, when you truly have been hurt by the one person besides God, you thought would never hurt you.
To a certain extent, that’s how I felt, too.
And one of my great friends says she’s coming up on the 4 year mark and ONLY NOW, does she even feel that she could be ready to invite someone else into her life.
Well for now, I just tell folks, I’m Divorced YET Unavailable. That’s a whole other story and whole other post! Lol
In the mean-time, I’ll stick to focusing on My God, My Girls and My Ministry as He leads.
What about you?
How challenging was it to overcome your hurt to allow someone else in?
Would You Ever Let Cameras Tape Your Journey!?
