This is for the ones who feel stuck with unanswered questions. Who are dealing with a situation in their lives that has reached a point of stagnation, the kind that disturbs your peace and seems to disrupt the balance in your life. For the ones who are waiting. Waiting for a change, waiting for movement, for an answer…for something they wish was within their control.
In my past dating life, there was one mistake I made over and over again: I focused more on finding a specific type of person than on finding someone who could simply make me happy.
After 3 months of awkwardly attempting to remain friends with my ex—the guy I was on and off with for years—I couldn’t stand it anymore. I just had to find out what he was up to. I could handle it, I told myself. I already knew that he’d been seeing someone (thanks, Facebook). I couldn’t resist clicking on his profile and scrolling down his timeline. And even though I managed to make it through quite a few happy-sounding posts (including some about his new girlfriend) without crying, I had to admit, it stung. Even worse, though, was admitting that once again, I let my curiosity get the best of me, and if I had just listened to my conscience, I wouldn’t have to feel this way.
