When I was studying for my Bible degree a long time ago, we learned about the “unforgivable sin” mentioned in Scripture. It was not something you DID but something not done. Basically, it was when you believed yourself too bad to be forgiven and stopped asking for it.
This is true in romance, as well. There are people out there for everyone, and most want to overlook flaws to find unity. Moreover, many WANT to care for your shortcomings. However, I’ve seen women and men over my life that feels they have too many problems and don’t put themselves out there. Or, they do, but then don’t feel good enough to try… feeling they would waste the other person’s time and thus become a self fulfilling prophecy.
The fatal sin in romantic potential isn’t something in your past or your character. It’s when YOU stop accepting grace and instead choose isolation.
