I have a love/hate relationship with this notion. I love having the ability to connect with people from all over who may be going through (or have gone through) a similar situation and we can sympathize with each other; share laughter and tears, inspiration and dread. However, on the other hand — I don’t know how I feel about the idea of someone judging my thoughts and emotions, my actions and reactions.
But at the end of the day and really thinking about it — I’ve decided that the aforementioned “love” wins. If I can connect with someone else so they may have that “I’m not the only one” moment — that makes it all worthwhile.
With that said…
Have you ever met someone that you instantly knew would change your world? Not in a bad way — but in a way that takes you outside of your norm?
I have. Well, I’ve met a lot of people throughout the years who have changed my life. But I’m speaking in a sense of relationships.
Dating. The maybe this is forever kind.
I met this person some time ago. But even still, the moment we met, I knew he wasn’t like the others. He was from a different world than I was. Enjoyed things I’d never thought about. Challenged me to look above and beyond myself. And taught me, even through all the hell, to always look out for the most important person, me.
Although, because of the outcome, I don’t know that he’ll understand or see the light that I do now. I don’t know if he’ll ever know that little things he did change in me. But I guess at the end of the day, that’s ok. It makes it all a little easier somehow. And my hopes for him are that he meets someone and has that instant thought of, “This girl is gonna change my life; without question.”
He did that for me. And I thank him for that. Despite the way it ended. I truly believe everything happens for a reason. Every person that has been brought into your life has a purpose. And at the end of every relationship; there’s a lesson.
Have you ever met someone and instantly knew they were going to change your world?
Happy thought provoking Tuesday, pretties!
