But in many definitions, I will probably not fall under the usual bracket.
Boring in that I would probably not be a best-selling thriller movie but I would definitely be your trusty friend with an opinion wit from last century and with their head stuck in the clouds. Why do I choose to start my post with an incomprehensible bio of myself? When I find out I surely fill you in.
I just had the urge to do so. Well, I have been making some changes as I always seem to be doing these days and I just made one that will probably be the hardest to pull off. I have just listened to a series of pod casts that have totally flipped my understanding and approach of relationships. I was just cruising through my laptop trying to sample the stuff I have saved in it that I had not got round to reading or watching.
The classic case of good intentions but a gold fish memory. To say the least, I have finally found my bearing when it comes to relationships. Have you always that feeling that you are running blind in your relationships and you need a pointer to know where you are going or what you are doing?
I have felt that all the time.
I have always had the fear that what I grew up seeing at home will reappear in my own life, and to be honest, a bit of it has.
Most of the time, if we live our relationships on autopilot following our instincts and gut feelings, we will usually end up curving the same path we have experienced, be it unpleasant or not. In a nutshell, the series dispelled the notion of waiting for or searching for the right one. It instead emphasizes on becoming the person that the person you are looking for is looking for. Think of it this way. The person you hope for has a set of ideals and traits.
Will that person want to look for you just as you are? Will they see you and see eternity or move on to the next person? The truth is that many of us have set a very high bar for our future life partner but we fail to meet the requirements or have the traits that they would love too.
This point hit me hard. It was absolutely true. Not that I am not quite a catch as is, but the super human traits I require of my future hubby require me to be a super woman in my own right.
