Hello Everyone! I am officially welcoming all of you faithful followers back to Ask Ashton. It’s been a long time since we talked and I’m really glad you’re all still here after such a long hiatus. Sometimes its necessary to step away and refocus, regroup and plot a new course. I am glad I took that time because my desire is to be a true asset to my readers and add to your lives in a tangible way. After searching my heart for what moves me the most and reviewing the themes of our most common questions — one thing stood out boldly. Women are honestly looking for healthy relationships and want to enjoy marriages that are rewarding and fulfilling. It is a simple thing, but simple does not equal easy by any means.
Integrity is something we have to fight for and choose daily. This is because we continuously face pressures that are trying to force us to compromise our integrity. If we are not diligent, the weight of those pressures will drive us to make excuses to justify poor choices. The unfortunate reality is that whatever we compromise to get, we will have to continue to compromise to keep. The good news is we have the power to choose integrity in every situation. When we purposefully choose to operate in integrity, everything gained will be enjoyed with a clear conscience.
Have you ever just been moving along through life, minding your own business, when something happens that throws a wrench in everything? Like, it just comes out of left field, and makes you take a few steps back to figure out what in the world just happened? We all have, right? Almost immediately, we begin searching for clues to help us understand how this wrench was able to cruise through so easily and create havoc in our world.
The situationship epidemic has gotten out of control. At first, it was kind of funny and I laughed at the idea because, well, it’s laughable. However, for reasons common sense cannot explain, a situationship has become a real thing that women are embracing. Sadly, I can hear the rising cheers and celebrations of commitment-phobic men across America because women have finally bought the false bill of goods they’ve been pushing for years.
