Now, some of us aren’t afraid of heights and we’re ready to take the plunge.Some of us take one look at the view (which looks just fine without the addition of our innards splattered below, thank you very much) and step away.Well, given the number of people in the world…what are the chances of you dating that one person who has led a perfect life? We’ve all been through transitions with relationships in our lives.Our friendships have changed…how we interact with our families has changed.They don’t feel like there is anyone who will understand what they’ve been through and accept them for it.Shoot…I remember thinking, “What if I meet someone and we’re talking and I…And some of us are standing on the ledge, with the cord on, but need a friendly push from a well-intentioned friend who we may be mad at while we’re swinging but once we’re on firm ground we’ll give them a big ol’ hug.
And those new friends you have made…they know who you really are and accept you for all of it. Shouldn’t I expect to find someone who can handle the “new” me?If your sense of self is still forming, it’s not time to date.Far better to spend your time with friends who will buoy you up as you figure out who you are in this new world.Who’s to say that the new you might find something even more meaningful and even deeper than what you had before? And if you hook something you don’t want…throw it back and cast again. I hear so many people say that what they had was perfect.
