I’ll be honest with you – I am extremely impatient. The doctor’s office already gives me goosebumps every time (ya) and I’m not trying to spend any extra time locked up under those florescent lights. The same applies to theme parks and restaurants (a part of me blames my ADD). I am well aware that I am at fault for whining about this because waiting is inevitable in these types of scenarios. Something I absolutely refuse to wait for is a man. The back burner is to heat up a simple soup; I just don’t belong there. I am a front-and-center type of girl and nobody puts baby in the corner. I’ll admit that my past was more of a doormat situation. I was too understanding, which made me a pushover who resided in the waiting room for far too long. When a man would give me an excuse as to why he was too busy, I would eat it up like a six ounce filet.
Times have changed. I am no longer Mrs. Nice Girl. As you all know, confidence runs through my veins. I am sure of the fact that I deserve the best and only the best. In order to get where I am today, I had to bite the bullet and stop my Gemini ways of putting people before myself. No more forgiveness, no more “no worries” responses and no more putting myself last. I never won anything in grade school and I’m not about to lose at life, ya feel me? I know you have heard Maya Angelou preach that you should never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option. The most valuable aspect of life is time. You can waste your money, food or affection but you can’t waste time because you can’t get that back. See, when you are waiting around for someone, you become closed off and disengaged with the rest of the hotties trying to grasp your attention. Your eyes remain focused on that one person who you feel has been worthy of all the time and energy you have invested thus far. I’ll go ahead and let you in on a little secret: anyone who makes you wait around, feel unsure and does not fear losing you is not worth a single tick on your clock.
I know it’s hard to believe, but there are still some good ones out there. These are the ones who will make you feel like a diamond in the rough. Once you stop fixating on things you think you want, you realize they’re the things you don’t really need. By no means am I encouraging you to drop him/her like it’s hot if they have a busy week. If they act busier than the POTUS, that is when it’s time to say Houston, we have a problem. If the behavior becomes a pattern, that’s when you should put your foot down and stomp the yard. I have a big heart and a lot of love to give. Sometimes I subtract a pound on the scale cause I truly feel like it’s just that large. I am not going to give my heart to someone who does not deserve my love. So for those of you who want to make me wait, you can take a number because the only person in the waiting room will be you (and you’ll be there forever).
