Often times, people get so wrapped up in accommodating others that their sense of self and their own boundaries may become a little loose.
With that, they lose themselves and lower their self esteem in the process.
They are lovingly arranged in chronological order and tucked away in a shoebox in our storage shed.
Over the past few years I have written about boundaries, your personal limits of what you will and won’t put up with, many times.
Yet, every day I hear from women who even in reading about boundaries and knowing the importance of them are afraid to actually divorce on the horizon, and who are not over their ex. You’re not someone to pass time with while they figure out what they do and don’t want, and the moment that you involve yourself in any of the above situations, the person knows that they don’t really have to do anything.
If they lie to you and let you they’re single, abort mission.
I should also remind about ‘lender awareness’ – do not allow yourself to be in a situation where you are sharing your man, whether it’s because you turn a blind eye to his cheating, or you keep letting him break up with you and then take him back once he’s got her/them out of his skin…which brings me neatly to… I will not spend my time waiting around, whether it’s for their calls, or for them to show up after they’ve disappeared, waiting for them to come back, waiting for them to turn into The Man I Think He Could/Should Be, or waiting for them to decide if they want to be with me – I’m not putting my life on hold for anyone.
The guy texts back, using all the words he has to communicate in a 24-hour period on you.
You instantly respond back with another five-paragraph essay. Your mom conveniently reminds you that men like a bit of a chase and this poor man was probably feeling bogged down by all the emotional effort involved in responding to your texts. Why Fast Isn’t Better Imagine trying to play a game of hide and seek and the person hiding stands right behind the seeker shouting “Here I am! After a while, the seeker would give up because the person hiding is no fun to play with. There is no suspense, no investment and no finding, which is always the best part of the game.
I had experienced heartbreak before, and I certainly didn’t want to experience that again.
I didn’t want my heart to get ahead of reality, so I held back for quite a while.
