Don’t let desperation be your guide. Instead, give yourself a break! If dating is driving you crazy, take yourself out of the running for a period until you are ready to deal with the highs and lows of dating.
Comment #5: “He wasn’t the right guy for you.”
You have tried and you have failed. It happens to the best and the brightest of people. Everyone comes across that someone who doesn’t fit what they are looking for. So what! The true test of a warrior comes in the form of resilience.
Take this as a learning experience: Through trial and error you will be able to identify what you need versus what you want, and when you’ve figured it out, you’ll be better prepared for your Mr. Right.
Comment #6: “When the time is right, you will meet someone.”
Sometimes you come across someone who seems perfect for you, but for one reason or another it just doesn’t work out because the timing wasn’t right; you’re in one place and she’s in another. If you sit back and do as some say, “let nature take its course,” love will find you.
Don’t let not having love right now be a distraction. Instead, find happiness in the life that you currently do have. There are so many wonderful things about being single that you might forget when you’re in a relationship, and being a complete individual (not a half individual; expecting someone to fill you up) is such an important component to sustaining a relationship.
Comment #7: “It will happen when you least expect it.”
This goes back to my first point on “It will happen when you’re not looking.” Nothing much left to say here. Let go, and let God.
Comment #8: “It just wasn’t meant to be.”
Understanding and accepting this can be the hardest thing for some. The time spent, tears cried, and moments shared will never be given back, but what you should always remember is that this time was not wasted.
Some may disagree, but I believe in purpose. Everything happens with a purpose and there are great things that can be learned from such experiences. A previous relationship may not have been meant to be, but it doesn’t mean the next one won’t be.
