I must conquer my loneliness
I must be happy with myself
or I have nothing to offer you.
Two halves have
when they coincide …
… that is beauty.
But you know that phrase “A watched pot never boils?” I think the same thing applies to people. Sometimes, you have to just let things happen when they happen. You have to let people say things when they are ready to say things; admit things when they are ready to admit things. Do things when they are ready.
Example: you can’t make someone say “I love you” if they are not ready to do so. That kind of pressure can also lead to resentment and permeates a cycle of negativity.
Just let it happen on it’s own and if it doesn’t, then move on. That’s on their conscience and you can’t beat yourself up over it because it’s not your fault. Maybe the person is not ready to say “I love you” because they have a reason. Just be patient and understanding of the person and their feelings. That, in and of itself, will mean more to the person than you could ever know.
So remember, people can’t be pushed to do or say things they are not ready for. “A watched pot never boils.”
