Finally, I Realized- (Answer to “I Got Lost in Man”)

The answer to “I Got Lost in a Man”.  

Finally, I had to realize that God comes first and accept that he will make all my dreams, desires, wants, and needs come true not that of a man.

Therefore, I should not get lost in a man who was not lost in love with God or me.

I finally realized that I need to love me first so that I don’t give so much of me that I get lost in a man.  I got lost in a man once now it’s time for me to get lost and in love with God so that he can truly bless me with a man who will not be afraid to get lost in love this woman.

You cannot get lost in a man when a man is not lost in you.

Love requires two people going in the same direction of love.

So, no more will I be lost in a man.

I got lost in a Man

For all those that have loved someone whole heartily and you found yourself lost in him/her.

I gave him my undivided attention and my devoted time.

I gave him my heart and my soul.

I got lost in a man.

I gave him all of my energy and my strength.

He was my “everything” and I breathed and slept this man.

I got lost in a man.

I placed him first and friends last.

I treasured every moment and every second together with him.

I dreamed of him every night for he was all that I wanted and all that I needed.

I forgot about the principles of love and the principles of respect for me.

I yearned for his affection and for his attention.

I got lost in a man.

No one came before him not even myself.

I found myself slipping because my spirit was lost in the valley.

I was walking on a one way highway of love.

I was headed down the road to failure.

I was crossing a one way street to love and selfishness.

I found myself being last and not first.

I found myself loving him more than I loved myself.

He was the air that I breathed and the sugar that I craved.

I wanted more of him than what he could give to me.

I got lost in a man.

The love that I wanted was not realistic.

I was in love with a man more than he was in love with me.

I loved him more than I loved myself.

My heart ached for this man.

The more I missed him the more I wanted him.

He knew how to reel me in with his smooth talking.

I got lost in a man.
