Rose-Colored Glasses

Updated: Jan 5

Rose-Colored Glasses

I used to think having rose-colored glasses was great.

It was optimistic.

Life was beautiful and people were grand!

I mean, aren’t we supposed to give people the benefit of the doubt?

It depends.

Not if your rose-colored glasses help you avoid the truth.

Like I did, over and over again.

Like that third date with my second husband. We drove into his garage. It was stacked floor to ceiling, with empty beer cases.

So, I handled it the best way I knew how.

I spoke to him about it.

And he agreed he drank too much.

How could I argue with that?

So for a while, he drank less (he was in love).

But after a while, his love high wore off. And I had a suspicion that he was drinking more than he said he was.

And 11 months later, at our wedding reception, I remember giving him the side-eye to see how much he was drinking.

So, deep down, I knew there was a problem.

But I kept those rose-colored glasses on by God!

I didn’t want to see the truth.

Because if I did, it meant I’d have to break it off long before a wedding.

But my limiting beliefs kept those rose-colored glasses planted firmly on my face.

And now I see those glasses were blinders.

I put blinders on and expected not to walk into traffic.

But I walked right into a bus.

He left me. I lost my house. I didn’t have a job.

And I lost most of my stuff.

It was a hard lesson to learn.

And that’s why I’m a coach now. My job is to help you see which limiting beliefs keep those rose-colored glasses on your face.

So if you’re worried you're blinding yourself, schedule a session.

I can help.
