Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Relationships are like road trips.
Sometimes they’re an exciting adventure. But sometimes they’re like a traffic jam going nowhere. Or even worse, they’re a wrong turn that’s taken you hundreds of miles off your course.
With much-needed humor and honest advice, bestselling author and speaker Chad Eastham helps you think through tough but necessary relationship issues such as:
· Why some people find happiness, while others find heartache

Chad’s conversational tone, facts, and advice encourage young people to rethink life’s conversations, even the difficult stuff like heartbreak. There is nothing in life that is too big, too painful, or too difficult that God cannot make better and use to teach us about love. Nothing.

But it’s an important reality that we should really get more comfortable with, in spite of how all the movies about love end. Sometimes . . . it doesn’t work out. No matter what you
was my next thought: Okay, self, now you know there are girls like this in the world, which is terrible information to know. Because someone will get to date this girl and get looked at all sweet by her, kiss her, and probably marry her. Some guy will get to smell her and hug her and stare at her whenever he wants. Here’s the bad news, self: she can pick anyone she wants, ANYONE. She’ll probably get all wooed by some smart, rich, dumbface, handsome, millionaire guy who doesn’t care about money
people kind of lose their minds when they get in relationships. I was told I could be an astronaut more often than I was told I could understand girls. Even the saying “Reach for the stars” is—if you want to be weirded out—really a way of getting you killed. I mean, stars are millions of degrees hot and you have to go to space to get to them . . . where there is no oxygen, which humans are “super into.” Also, I’m pretty sure I’d need a space shuttle, and at $4 billion a pop, that’s not looking
the “thinking” side of your brain (which has to be developed) and only used the emotional side of your brain, then your whole day would be incredibly awkward and funny and also miserable. Any jogger, unpleasant feeling, or loud noise would, quite literally, send you into a panic. You would constantly be fleeing the scene, hiding, screaming, fighting people who startle you, and generally looking like an idiot.
