I was reading an article the other day about a woman who fell in love with a man who was already in a relationship. She knew he was taken, but she couldn’t help herself.
The article got me thinking about how often we meet the right person at the wrong time.
How many times have you been in a relationship and thought to yourself, “If only _____, then this would be perfect.”?
Or how many times have you met someone new and felt an instant connection, only to find out that they’re already taken?
It’s easy to blame timing when things don’t work out, but the truth is that we can’t control when we meet people. All we can control is our own behavior.
If you want to find love, don’t wait for the perfect person to come along. Be the perfect person for someone else. Be open to relationships, even if they don’t seem ideal at first. And be willing to let go of people who aren’t right for you, even if you feel a strong connection.
Timing is everything, but it’s also out of our control. So instead of waiting for the perfect circumstances, create them yourself.
