I had a recent conversation with a friend of mine. (We have that love/hate kind of relationship)
We were talking about my book and I was doing an interview to get his take on some things. (I got some good information to help me with some of my stories)
Okay, enough about that~So back to my topic of this message...
How long exactly should you pursue and unwanted relationship?
How long have you ever tried to reign someone back in while failing miserably and hurting your ego in the process?
My motto these days is if I can visibly/self-consciously notice that my text messages/my calls/my emails/my visits are unwanted, it's time for me to move on. No game was ever won with only one person playing on a team. There has to be at least two people for a thriving relationship to be had. If one person seems to be putting in more work than the other then it is time-in my opinion that you walk away with your dignity (n. the state or quality of being worthy of honor or respect) left intact.
It never fails for you trying to be the bigger person and trying to salvage whatever is left only to turn into the aggressor because you feel that you are being ignored; disrespected; ridiculed.
I'm saying all of this because I have been the pursuer way too many times. I have come to the realization that if I have to chase after people, I would rather be doing something better off like working on the people that can stand with me in agreement and love me for who I am regardless of my faults!
Life is too short to play the game of cat and mouse. I no longer do this and at my age, I really shouldn't have to!
Know who your real friends are because unfortunately some people are only out there for their own selfish needs and use people to their advantage.
This is "what's on my mind" today, what's on your mind?
Be blessed and remember to #motivate #empower every chance you get!
