I had never really heard of this saying before tonight but every time I say it, it becomes more and more true. Have you ever really thought of being in love, or love at first sight? It boggles my mind as to how our bodies and mind work, but I thought I would give you a glimpse of what I think about it.
I have never really been a very romantic person, and in all honesty I haven’t found that right person to make me want to bend over backwards for them. (I am assuming a lot of people have been here, and are probably here right now). I am here to tell you that it is not the end of the world. The way that we live our lives is our choice. But I haven’t always been this type of person. I had a lot of changes, broken heart moments, and relationships that have shaped who I am.
I had been a very insecure person about not being with someone and I really put my identity into having a relationship. Although at the time it felt very needy, it became just a way of life and I never really learned how to be content with where I am at in life. As time went by I went in and out of relationships very frequently, to the point where friends and family didn’t want to meet my partners because they knew this person would be gone just as fast as they came. Each time I would find one thing about that person that would attract me which then began a cycle of isolating myself around that feature or attribute about that person and ignoring those around me. I may be speaking to a larger crowd than I think I am. In the end, your personal life is yours and what you do with it is your choice. The thing you have to remember is that sometimes those who were there with you through some of your choices may not be there forever.
Have you been in a situation where you’ve allowed your emotions get the best of you?
