The other night while on the phone with my baby sister, I refer to her as my baby even though she just turned 28, we started talking about relationships, past and present, and I thought about someone that I dated almost three years ago. Every now and then he pops into my head, and for a moment, I kick myself for not being more patient when dating him. Basically he wasn’t ready for a relationship and I was, so we decided to part ways so that I could find what I thought I was looking for. And months later I did, I met the young man who is now my ex lol.He’ll sometimes give you what you thought you wanted, just to show you that you really have no idea what you really need.I swear God has the best sense of humor ever, but I now hear him loud and clear, I need to learn to be patient.
Despite all the heart ache and disappoint, every now and then He let’s me know that I am on the right path to finding my one and only. I think about all of the men that I’ve dated, or loved, and can now see why things didn’t work out. It wasn’t meant to be because they weren’t who He has in store for me. But I don’t regret any of it because they helped me see what qualities I want in a husband. And in the words of Marilyn Monroe, “I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” I now accept that it didn’t work out with anyone else because it had to be you. 🙂
