Many times a person will talk about how they want to be in love and find that special someone. They will talk about, search for it, and find themselves not getting everything they hoped for. That when people start to question if love will ever find them. However the real question is, are you ready for love?
A few times in previous post I’ve mentioned my past self-esteem issues, and when I was in that place I knew that I couldn’t see myself in a relationship. I knew that I didn’t have the type of relationship with myself that I needed, and I couldn’t be with someone while I was in the place. Once I was able to love myself, I had confidence, and understood what being in a relationship meant that when I felt ready to date.
From there I’ve dated some nice guys, I’ve been in and out of love, but most importantly I’ve been in the right place mentally and emotionally in all of them. For one to be ready for love they have to first love themselves, know they’re worthy to be loved, and not settle for anything less than what you’re worth.
When one is dating and developing those interactions into a relationship work is going to be required to see if things evolve into a loving relationship. That alone takes time, and if a person enters into a companionship not knowing if they’re ready then that adds more work, and can cause problems. Ultimately, one has to decide if they want to spend the time chasing after love or getting ready for it.
