The Reality Of Falling For The Right Person, At The Wrong Time


This happens to all of us at one point in time. You meet someone on your vacation who sweeps you off your feet and never see them again. You meet a boy on a plane who is going in the opposite direction of you and only get to have a two hour conversation with them. Maybe you fall in love with someone at the age of 17, and end up going to different universities.

Or worst of all, maybe you fall in love with someone who you only have a limited time with. Because in a year or two, they will have to move to a different country.

The reality of falling for the right person at the wrong time is that, it’s excruciating. It’s painful and frustrating to know that this person could’ve been your personYou think to yourself, if only they lived here, we would of never have broken up. If only they didn’t have to move, we would still be together now. If only I had met them when I had my life together. 

But, the reality of this situation is that, if you really thought they were going to be your forever person, then you would do whatever it takes to be with them.

The reality of falling for the right person at the wrong time, is that there is no wrong time. There is no wrong scenario. Just the wrong person.

If this person is right for you, a move to a different country wouldn’t throw you. If this person is meant to be with you, you would fight for them until you were right by their side.

If this person is right for you, you would try harder. You would work harder. And you would do whatever it took to be with them, no matter the risks.

So, while you can certainly fall for someone at an inconvenient time or place, if you really want to be with that person, you would do it. You would take that leap of faith. You would move miles away from your family. You would make those sacrifices. Because if you find your forever person, you aren’t going to ever let that go.

When you find someone who you want to spend the rest of your life with, you aren’t going to make it easy to lose them. You aren’t going to blame the breakup on bad timing. You are going to do everything in your power to be with them. You are going to do everything in your power to date them. And you will do everything in your power to love them for forever.

The truth about falling for the right person at the wrong time, is that it isn’t a truth. It’s not how it’s supposed to be.

When you find someone who lights up your world in ways no one else has done before, and when you find someone who makes you smile just by knowing they exist, you aren’t supposed to give that up.

No matter the time, the location, or your age, when you find that person who loves you for you, you’re supposed to make it work. You’re supposed to try your best. You’re supposed to loveThought Catalog Logo Mark
