(92) He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not by Trish Ryan


So my quest into my dating makeover has continued. This time with a book I found in the Christian Inspiration section. And after this past weekend, I certainly need it. He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not is written by someone who could be me. In fact, in someways I hope things end up for me like they ended up with Trish, happily married.
But first, let me tell you what happened a couple of weeks ago. I went to a Nutrition Center to do a full body analysis, in preparation of starting a weight loss program. So I am JUST getting ready to step on the scale when the door opens & in walks Ex-Boyfriend #2. (Mentioned in book #91). I was absolutely DUMB-STRUCK. It seems as if my life is turning into a twisted version of a Chick Lit book. In more ways than one. For you see, as I type this blog post my current unhealthy "relationship" & I are fighting on IM & I am 100% sure that it is over.
Trish Ryan led a life very similar to mine up to a certain point. She grew up in a large Catholic family. She dated a lot, always looking for a husband. She even stated that she went to college, not to get a degree, but to get married. She dated men, slept with men, hoping they would fall in love with her. She even did get married, to an emotionally abusive man.
He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not is Trish's spiritual & emotional journey through singledom (how is that for a word). She gives everything over to God & trusts him to lead her to the man meant for her. And when she least expects it, it happens. She gets her "Happy Ever After".
What I learned from Trish & her story, is that I do deserve someone who respects me, loves me & cherishes me. I need to re-discover my Church Community. I need to give this all to God & trust that He will lead me in the right direction.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
