Do you ever just get tired of trying to reach someone?
Seriously. There are only so many times you can explain to someone, ask someone, or try. And then you give up.
Wise women recognize that before it makes them a raving lunatic. The problem is, if someone is important enough to try and reach (emotionally), you likely don’t want to give up. You convince yourself that they also want to be reached. You convince yourself of all the good that’s in them. You convince yourself that there’s potential.
Potential is a dangerous word, most often a desperate, unfulfilled hope, and a broken promise that was never really made in the first damn place. . In a word, potential is: dangerous and, quite frankly, women over 40 don’t have the lifespan left, or the patience to deal with potential. Potential can rob you of a wonderful reality.
I’m convinced that there are people out there (other fabulous pals and lovers) who won’t make you wait. Who won’t keep you guessing, and won’t leave you fantasizing about potential, because they are living it, in the present moment.
Let’s drop this potential crap and get back to reality shall we darlings?
