Dating? 10 Red Flags He/She is not the one!

Angry Heart 45

Run for the hills if:

  1. They say, “I’m so proud of you!”, but never show interest in your endeavors.
  2. They always visit you at your place but have an elaborate reason why you can’t spend time at theirs.
  3. You feel the need to seek emotional support elsewhere because they’re frustratingly inept!
  4. They lovingly suggest you get rid of your pet or friends for your own good!
  5. They keep you a secret from their friends and family.
  6. They show no interest in meeting your kid(s) (from previous relationship).
  7. They think buying you gifts negates the need for quality time together.
  8. When out shopping, they rather spend your money and safeguard theirs.
  9. They insist they’re not ready for a serious relationship month after month after month!
  10. If after a year your relationship status still screams it’s complicated then it’s time to move on!

Worth saving…

 

Confused,
she attempted to let go
of a situation she couldn’t comprehend.

Uncertain,
she pondered the reason
for her presence in his life.

Frustrated,
she questioned if what they had
was worth saving.

Relieved,
he asked her to be patient,
to give him a little more time.

Surprised,
he held on tighter
than she thought he ever would.

Elated,
she was comforted to know
he cared enough to ask her to stay.

Don’t believe them!

 

The ones who claim
to be better than the rest,
are the ones who end up
hurting us the most.
Why?
Because we
actually believe them!

Don’t fall for their
hypnotizing song and dance,
for the lies they feed us
are not fit
for human consumption.
Instead,
toss their servings of drivel
to the swine,
for we all know
they’ll eat anything!

Moment of clarity

image

 

The truth is,
My insecurities caused me
to let people into my life
who were unhealthy for my wellbeing.

My young-adult, low self-esteem
clouded my judgment.
My needs, unmet as a child,
left a void I sought to fill relentlessly.

There was no love to be found
in any of the places I looked.
Thirty years of searching
makes the heart a little weary.

The candle of hope
dwindles with each passing decade.
The truth is,
My insecurities were by curse.

This was a tough lesson to learn.
I’ve always wondered
what I was doing wrong
but the answers never came.

I’ve grown significantly since then,
and I understand better
who I am and what I deserve.
I finally had a moment of clarity today.
