If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you have probably come to realise my lack of luck when it comes to love. Most of my posts are about moving on, making the most of every opportunity and not letting the past hold you back. Which is true but on the flip side of that there is the situation when you meet someone new. In the early days it is all very exciting you try not to get your hopes up too much but of course you want to get to know someone better. You want to see their world and share your world with them. It is an exciting time. It is a time that requires control and most importantly a time to have confidence.
In a time when you’re meeting new people have the confidence to be yourself. Eventually this person will experience the real you and if you want a relationship to last it is so important to just be yourself. You are individual and there is someone out there who will find you beautiful, someone who will enjoy your company, someone that loves your personality someone who makes you feel happy even on your darkest days. This person might not be the person who you spend the rest of your life with but take the time to get to know them.
I think one of the most beautiful things in life is having something to share things with. Sharing an experience with another being is such a great feeling. Finding someone who has similar interest to yours is always amazing. Someone with a similar sense of the world is even better. I think it’s cool to be with someone who isn’t exactly the same as you. Then they can introduce you to new things. You can introduce them to new things and in the middle you should be having fun while you both get to know each other.
While a new interest can be super exciting don’t forget about your friends. While this might be the best thing that has ever happened to you and you are really excited about it. This person wasn’t there to pick you up every other time your heart has been broken. This person hasn’t been at all of your birthdays for the past 10 years. While it is all new and exciting remember your friends. They are the ones that love you unconditionally. They need you as much as you need them!
Don’t get too caught up in the hustle and bustle of everything. You don’t need to ad extra pressure. Keep an open mind to the future. Who knows what will happen. This could be the person you spend the rest of you life with but then again it might not be. You might end up being friends for life and there is nothing wrong with that either. At the end of the day at least you have tried. You have tried to make it work and that is better than not trying at all.
Keep yourself safe, know your limits and don’t allow someone to push you into something you’re not comfortable with. You are your own person and you health and safety is so much more important than doing something to make someone else happy.
This looks like a lot of words so let me break it down for you. Stay safe, have fun, try new things, know your limits and if all else fails just laugh because if this one doesn’t work out it isn’t the end of the world.
