The Problem with Potential

Jan

Disclaimer: I went back and forth regarding the length of this post. Part of me kinda wanted to make it a normal-length post, but when tried to make a longer post, it didn’t feel right. So here it is, simple and to the point. I hope you enjoy it.

There are two sides to potential:

One, you can see the potential in someone and still see them for who they are in the moment. That’s the ideal side of the coin to be on.

Two, you ONLY see someone for what they could be. Even worse, your interaction with that person is based on their potential, versus who they are right now.

After much heartache (and lost time that I can’t get back), when it comes to potential, it’s best to see someone for who they are right now because if they don’t reach their potential, you can save yourself a lot of time and heartache.

Fall for people for who they are now versus who they could be. What if they never become that person?

I am a former people pleaser. I would go out of my way to do whatever I could to make others happy. Always being available when others needed me but in my time of need no one was around.

The moment I realized that I was no longer going to give a f@*# about those who didn’t care about me was one of the best days of my life.

Why waste the time and energy on undeserving people?

Public Service Announcement: Tea Time

Folks feel some kind of way when their tea (aka personal business) becomes storytime (aka tea time) for the kids.

If you feel that your tea is being spilled amongst the masses, you shouldn’t be putting the water into the pot.

My bestie LVC said it best. “If you yourself enjoy a nice high tea every now and then, you should be prepared to be a special on the menu once in a while.”

Pinkies up. Tea is served.

Public Service Announcement: Break Time

I’m going on a dating hiatus.

Before you curse me for ruining your day, allow me to explain. I’m stepping back from taking an active role in the dating scene. If I meet someone, great. If I don’t, whatever. The train wrecks I’ve encountered thus far have irritated my spirit to no end. At this point, I don’t have the patience to endure another round of “getting to know you”. I need a break. Don’t worry, I’ll have plenty of tales to bring you from Single Island.

On that note, I’m out!
