For the majority of my adult life I have been in a relationship. Some were the incredible type whilst others I just fell into and they passed the time. Then I started thinking – in all of the relationships I have ever been in, was I just settling?
Whilst some people settle down, some people settle for something less than what they truly deserve. Is it a conscious decision or have we gotten so comfortable with what we have settled for that we don’t even realise we are doing it? Then there’s something called hindsight. As clear as day slapping you in the face.
Recently I have learnt so much about myself and what I won’t settle for from now on. I now refuse to settle for anything less than everything. Life is too short not to risk that everything for the chance that something so passionate and magical could happen. I am not going to sit around and let it pass me by. Whatever everything looks and feels like, I am looking forward to finding out.
