They think that your past failures define what you are incapable of now and in the future.
If someone does not want to be with you, they will do one of two things: they will ignore you, or they will keep you around, and make excuses.
The truth is, many of us are living lives that are productive, but not necessarily passionate.
Stop holding yourself back from your own potential.
Your potential never showed up. Your potential wasn’t even close. Your potential never saved the day. Your potential broke my heart.
We have been falling for potentials most of our lives but it’s time we stop and fall for what’s real, for the things we can see and feel, for the communication that soothes our anxiety and lets us know what we mean to someone, for actions that make us feel like we both are on the same page.
I had spent my whole life looking for answers. If I could only find the right answer, maybe I would be happy. Maybe my life would work.
Free yourself from the expectations for your next night out, your next date or your next day at work – as long as nothing is expected, there’s nothing for it to live up to, thus giving it endless potential to be nothing short of spectacular.
