Sadie Robertson Says This “Huge Lie” Destroyed Relationship With Ex, Reveals Who Her Husband Will Be

There are few women in pop culture whom I see fit to be role models for the younger generation of girls we’re raising up today and Sadie Robertson is one of them.

Since making her first appearances as a teenager on her family’s A&E hit series Duck Dynasty, Sadie Robertson has grown into a beautiful, respectable young woman who knows a thing or two about connecting with others.

As part of her Live Original motivational speaking tour (because that’s what every girl does at 20 years old), Sadie Robertson recently launched a new personal blog which she plans to use as a platform for “heart-to-hearts” and honest conversations with those following her journey.

The very first blog, titled “A Passionate Pursuit,” was posted on July 31, and y’all, she got really REAL, really fast.

The Dancing With the Stars runner-up has always been open about her relationships, heartbreak and ultimate pursuit of Jesus. But this post put things into a whole new perspective, once again crowning her as role model of the century.

Talking about her failed relationship with former boyfriend Blake Coward, Sadie writes about how they were so “passionate,” and how that’s ultimately what destroyed them.

“We were so…’passionate’—and to me, it seemed like that couldn’t possibly be a negative thing, because I heard the word passion at church all the time. That was a huge LIE and created so much confusion for me. I thought our connection was so deep because we created this false love for ourselves that said it was okay to constantly fight like cats and dogs, scream hateful words and cry till our eyes were swollen. All we’d have to do afterwards is share a kiss, make up and then boom—our relationship would be stronger than ever. That was wonderful and all…until the next throw down came which was inevitably not too far around the corner.”

Sadie Robertson believes this pattern derives from our modern-day culture, which influences young women to be “passionate,” and convinces them that not only is this cycle of fighting and making up considered normal, but I’d go as far as to say that culture paints it to be desired.

“We would go through this unhealthy pattern of “I hate you, I love you. I hate that I love you.” The world makes that seem like such a normal, attractive concept through movies and music, but let me tell you, it definitely is not. We figured out the hard way that all it leaves you with is a lot of hurt, loneliness and confusion.

You can go with the media’s version of passion, but I’m speaking from experience here when I say that even if it survives and the relationship lasts, you will be living for temporary moments of happiness and gratification instead of true joy.”

It goes without saying, but Sadie boasts inspiring wisdom that is far beyond her years. It’s real talk and Truth like this that our girls desperately need to be soaking up and holding on to.

She explains how it’s true that relationships aren’t always sunshine and roses, but there’s a difference between working through bad times in a manner that is proactive, and living in “temporary survival mode” as you hold onto something destructive.

Sadie Robertson reveals that it was after yet another “intense fight” with her boyfriend that she did what she should have done long before: She turned to God’s word.
