I don’t know about you guys but I’ve noticed lately how much of a rush people seem to be in when it comes to getting into a relationship and finding their ‘one’, it’s like they’ve become more obsessed with just being able to say they have a boyfriend/girlfriend than actually taking the time to find someone that they actually care for or are compatible with.
I’m not at all slating people who do this because I can completely understand why people do it, I have been one of them people you’re down/lonely and everyone around you seems to all loved up and happy, so you go off in search of that same type of happiness. I’m not saying that relationships and love don’t make us happy because I’ve had some amazing times in relationships but over the last few years though I’ve definitely realised that although being in a relationship can be a huge source of happiness, you should never enter into a relationship just because you think it will fix all that’s wrong in your life or because you feel like being in a relationship is something that ‘everyone is doing’.
I stumbled across the quote ‘Don’t be a queen waiting for a king, be a queen busy with her empire until her king arrives’ and it really made me smile the older I get the more I realise that loving myself and being happy with myself is so much more important than trying to find a man too make me happy. The truth is the best relationships are the ones that aren’t forced or rushed, they happen when you’re both happy in your own lives and can share that happiness together.
