If you are feeling lost in the world of dating right now, I’d encourage you to look within yourself. Often we look out into the world for a solution.
It’s important to always remember your own values and what is best for your long term happiness in a relationship. The more clear you are on your own boundaries and what fulfills you, the more everything falls into place. If you are not clear on what you need in a relationship, it’s very easy to get distracted. The more you stay connected to your values , the more energy you will have, the more passion for life you will have. That’s important for when the right person comes along.
This might mean making some difficult decisions. Perhaps there are some habits you indulge in that don’t serve your goal in finding a meaningful relationship. Perhaps it will mean moving away from some people who are not aligned with what is important to you. The pain of a moment, or the pain of decision of disappointing someone because you didn’t do what they wanted you to do, is short lived, compared with a lifetime of happiness with someone special.
It’s going to take some courage to do what is necessary. Don’t get to the end of your life and think, “what if I had only done that?” “What is I had stepped out of my comfort zone to meet some quality singles?” In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.
Don’t worry what everyone else is doing or saying. All that matters is what is in your heart. Feel what is right for you! It really doesn’t matter if no one else understands. I have noticed that those big decisions are often the things that inspire others to make changes in their lives as well.
Remember what is important to you and stay connected to your values and goals.
