Stop Waiting For Life To Be Perfect

Stop Waiting For Life To Be Perfect

Stop waiting for weekends, for summer, for someone to fall in love with you.

Stop waiting for countless midnights and late nights. Stop waiting for those unreturned calls and no reply messages. Stop waiting for minutes, hours, days or years. Stop waiting for those hellos and unsaid goodbyes.

Stop waiting for that voice you are longing to hear. Stop waiting for that arms to embrace you tight. Stop waiting for that moonlight to shadow you with its light while you think about how it could have been. Stop waiting for people who couldn’t appreciate the time and effort you have given. Stop waiting for the clarity that you are looking and searching for so long. Stop waiting for that closure, for the conclusion that you need.

Stop waiting for those apologies. Stop waiting for those half-given love and unsure feelings. Stop waiting for your place in someone’s life. Stop waiting for uncertainties; stop waiting for those unfelt emotions. Stop waiting for someone to save you. Stop waiting to be chosen.

Stop waiting for validation—you don’t need it in the first place. Stop waiting to be wanted and held. Stop waiting to be heard; stop waiting to be seen. Stop waiting to be understood. Stop waiting for those unfulfilled promises. Stop waiting for reasons, excuses, and explanations. Stop waiting before your heart collapses into fragments. Stop waiting before you put your pieces back together.

Stop waiting for love, for people, for things to work out.

Stop waiting for life to be perfect.

Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most of the moment you are in right now. Appreciate the hardships, difficulties and pain. Life’s greatest lessons are learned best through this.

Life’s best project you’ll ever work on is always you. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
