    I’m Not Ready

    The Recovering Pessimist: I'm Not Ready -- People mean well when they say things to you. But when you're not in a space to receive the information, you just aren't ready. The end. | www.therecoveringpessimist.me #amwriting #recoveringpessimist #optimisticpessimist“You should…”

    “If I were you…”

    “You know, if you…”

    “Stop waiting and…”

    “But why aren’t you doing/going/etc…”


    I understand that people mean well, I do. I also understand that those people are looking out for my well-being. And I appreciate that. When I’m in the head space, I can receive the information and respond. But there are times where I’m not ready to receive nor respond.

    When you aren’t ready, you aren’t ready.

    I get that you mean well.¬†Please understand that I won’t always be in the space to receive¬†what you are saying to me. Yes, it’s frustrating and I mean no disrespect towards you. When I’m ready, I will let you know.

    Keep looking out for me…

    …and I’ll continue to do the same for you.
