Patience is a virtue. However, patience used in the wrong situation equals wasted time. We see it every day. Boy meets girl, boy likes girl, but boy doesn’t commit to her. Or vice versa. With the assumption of being able to change the way a person feels or thinks, we often sit around waiting for our circumstances to change…but they hardly ever do.
In most situations, waiting for a person who is confused or unsure of their feelings will leave you hurt and disappointed.
The sad part is that oftentimes, they aren’t really confused or unsure at all. They’d just rather not commit to you for whatever reason. Usually they’re sure of it from the beginning too. But, they allow you to believe there’s a chance a relationship might occur. If you wait around long enough (perhaps several years) he or she might commit to you. But, by that time you’re unsure if the reason they’re finally ready to commit is because they feel pressured and don’t want to lose you. Or maybe they’re just casually committing to the relationship because you’ve been in the picture for so long. Neither situation is favorable. If you have to wait around for a person to commit, it’s very possible they aren’t the one. No need to dance around the bush with this one.
Life is short and way too brief to waste time. There are over 7.13 billion people in the world.
There are plenty of people that’d be honored to have you in their lives. If the person you’re currently dating can’t make up his or her mind, it may be time to let them go. Severing the relationship may hurt at first. But, you’ll get over it. Believe me. The first step is to realize you deserve better. The next step involves you leaving. A two-step simple process that many people choose to make difficult. This isn’t algebra or physics. Move on, and never look back.
