When things are going good, we worry that any second they could go bad.

Yet when things are going bad, we forget that at any second they could become good.

A Victim of My Own Optimism in Romance

She hits the nail on the head!!

“I have fallen in love more times than I care to count with the highest potential of a man, rather than with the man himself, and I have hung on to the relationship for a long time (sometimes far too long) waiting for the man to ascend to his own greatness. Many times in romance I have been a victim of my own optimism.”

Your Path

Don’t confuse your path with your destination. Just because it’s storming now doesn’t mean you’re not headed for sunshine!

Appreciate Your Exes

Don’t underestimate the value of your failed relationships. Sure, relationships can (and often do) fail. But certainly, there is no failure in relationship. Relationship itself is always a gain.

These people, even if they’re the wrong ones, are the ones teaching you the most about yourself, what you do and don’t want in a mate, and ultimately preparing you for the one to whom you are destined. For this, if for nothing else, you ought to be able to muster at least a smidgen of appreciation 😉
