Thought for the day:
When beginning our attempts to ‘find someone’, the majority of us approach it with self-certainty in what we want - standards.
Whether it’s someone who’s; tall, athletic, passionate, ambitious, independent, funny, trustworthy, appreciative, or any other adjective you can think of - we all have preferences that we work toward.
So how come if Mr/Mrs right, doesn’t come waltzing into our lives at the first time of asking, do we start to move the goalposts? “Maybe they don’t have to be funny?”
“Maybe I’m aiming too high.”
“Maybe I should lower my standards?” This isn’t because the person you’d like to meet, doesn’t exist- and it’s not because you’re not worthy of all you desire, either.
It’s because you’re expecting the full package to be shipped to your doorstep, via Hermes courier - “Signature here please…”✍🏻 Think of it in terms of a job interview. The position of boyfriend/girlfriend, will require certain skills and characteristics that not all applicants will have.
If you couldn’t find a candidate to fulfil those needs - the position would be re-advertised until those requirements were met.
So rather than ‘settling’ for someone who will give you the attention you so clearly desire, why not take a step back, and realise that you’d rather be content in your own presence, than miserable in someone else’s.
Don’t lower your standards, lower your expectations.
