Hi everyone! I hope you are having a great week so far.
The title of this post is inspired by the show Blue Therapy. The show is over and seeing as I touched on it in a previous post, I thought it apt to chat about it today. I saw the aftermath show where they talk to the couples sometime after the therapy sessions were completed. Thankfully Chioma left her relationship. I was so happy, I literally had to pause it to give a celebratory dance before continuing. Paul missed the session, presumably because he was a bit embarrassed that she left him. Chioma found her self-worth and left a situation that was detrimental to her in every way. There are some reasons to believe the show was fake but if it isn’t, I will be even more excited, because we got to see the strength it takes to finally look in the mirror and realize that you are cheating yourself out of the happiness you deserve. Chioma had a moment of self-reflection and did what needed to be done. She said she didn’t like the person she was before and recognized that he was slowly breaking her down. She spoke so much truth that I was like ppplllsss someone should see this and be inspired enough to up and leave whatever bad relationship they find themselves in.
The statement she said really stuck with me “the way I love myself now is… arrogant.” I was like DAMN! I love that her friend was there to also speak on her observations about their relationship and how she wanted better for her friend. I LOVE friends that are FAMILY! The thing that didn’t surprise me much was that paul’s persona as this provider that has so many high-value clients that he kept talking about was actually all fake. Maybe he was doing the thing where you fake it till you make it, or speak the reality you want to live. In actual fact, Chioma wasn’t a kept woman. I don’t understand why some women pretend to be kept! Anyways, that’s a rant for another day. I also love that in the end, she talked about what she learned from the relationship. She learned to be more business-minded and focused. There is always a lesson to be learned. I wish her all the luck in the world and I hope she grows as a person and finds the right person for her. P.s. lol thank goodness she escaped having such a terrible person as her sister-in-law. The wrong inlaws can be such a thorn on the side!
Unfortunately, Deborah did not see sense in the end. She got back with the cheater that was gaslighting her in the beginning. He pretended she was just crazy and paranoid when she was spot on about him being doggy and cheating! I don’t understand how she got back with him. And she has been with him for way less than Chioma was with paul. She is making the grave mistake of sinking even more miserable years into that toxic relationship. All through the aftermath episode, he didn’t even look slightly repentant! Yes, she is materialistic, but he is just plain TERRIBLE! And he actually had the guts to call her a harlot for sleeping with someone when they were not together???!!! OMG how does someone still remain in a relationship with a SNAKE like that! She should have ended things a long time ago and he presented her with yet another perfect moment to call it quit. Again, I love her friend’s take on things as well. Sometimes all you can do is be there for someone even when they are making the worst mistake ever. LOL and she still hasn’t met his family! OMG we just need to keep praying for Deborah that she sees the light sooner rather than later.
P.s. you can see that this topic has got me in my feelings with all the capital letters everywhere! LOL.
Thank you for spending time with me today and I hope you’ll be back here again next week Wednesday. Have a great rest of the week!
