I’m Not Going To Wait Around For You To Make Up Your Mind


I’m not going to be your afterthought.

I’m not your last-minute invite, your fallback plan, the girl you call up when the party’s growing tired and you’re lonely.

I’m not the girl who waits for you to make up your mind. I’m not the spineless kind, the doormat variety, the kind of girl who’ll bend over backwards to please you when you wouldn’t lift a finger unless it is perfectly convenient.

I’m not the girl who sticks around in anticipation.

Your indecision is a decision. And it’s one you have every right to make.

But I’m not going to be here to see it through.

I’m not going to waste away sitting on your back burner. I’m not going to put your interests first, when you’re already busy doing the same. I’m not going to ask ‘how high’ when you ask me to jump.

I’m not going to let you occupy any more space in my mind, my heart, my list of ever-shifting priorities, if you will not place me onto yours.

I’m not the girl who waits around for men as indecisive as you.

I have my own life to live.

I have my own decisions to make.

I have a strong heart but an even stronger backbone.

And the best decision I will make today is the decision to close the door on you and I. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather

Let go now
