It took me years to understand that I had to heal in order to feel. For decades, I ran from my feelings. I ate on them, drank on them and over-worked to avoid them – until I realised that my disconnection from my feelings was sabotaging my relationships. It seems obvious now but for a long time, I was unaware of the importance of feeling my feelings. If I could just keep moving – running or working or travelling or falling in and out of relationships – then they wouldn’t catch up with me. I wouldn’t have to feel the grief, loss and pain that was stored deep inside and that I’d been avoiding since I was a child. I wonder if you have done this, and if you do it now?

It’s a saying as old as Shakespeare that the path of love doesn’t run smooth, and when it comes to online dating that can certainly seem true! No two couples who meet on Christian Connection have the same story. While some clicked straight away, many didn’t – and there’s lots to learn from their stories.

Like most people, last year didn’t quite go how I imagined. I had dreams and plans for the year and I even made a vision board for the first time in my adult life (I know)! Then Covid happened and everything changed. I had to cancel some plans and manage my expectations for the year as things were no longer in my control. But it wasn’t all bad, and at the end of the year, I took some time out to thank God for all that He did for me in 2020, despite the disappointments.
