Time; Spend It Wisely
It really isn’t where your man is, but where he wants to be… As I jam to Keyshia Cole’s CD and hit that Let It Go tune, I’m sure….sure that this cannot be me. I’m a firm believer in my man being with ME and wanting to be with ME. I won’t speak to where I’ve been, where I was, what I’ve done – we’re talking about the here and now. If he isn’t going to love you or treat you the way he should (or better yet, the way you need him to) then drop it. Which brings me to a conversation I had with MWC (My Wonderful Counselor) last night about my relationship with BD; basically, I was saying to MWC that as beautiful as everything is, we all have goals and should stick to them. These goals include healthy and logical growth in my relationship. I have a mental timeline that I allow to serve as my framework. What happens if BD and I don’t fit that timeline? Simple, I’ll revisit what my priorities are and determine whether my goals have changed or if it is time to make priorities a reality elsewhere.
“If he ain’t gonna love you the way he should, then let him go.” That’s what the song says, but many of us have enough trouble finding the right man and letting the right man go because he doesn’t fit the framework we’ve set seems a daunting task. So, here’s the question…
Do you recognize that you may block your blessings (and who that blessing is intended with) if you do not cut your losses with certain folks in your life and move on?
Keep passin’ the open windows…
