For some odd reason in the last year, I have been constantly on the lookout for who I may or may not be spending the rest of my life with. What is so odd about this you ask? Maybe the fact that I am 19 and have so many other things to worry about, is why it's odd.
Since returning back to college this fall, I have found myself not looking for love as much. Instead, I have been learning how to become successful in the future. I have found out more about myself, like my strengths and weaknesses. I have discovered that instead of always looking and waiting for love, it tends to come when you least expect it. So that is why I stopped. I decided that I needed to start living my life, and exploring the world, and become successful instead of worrying about something at such a young age.
I think the issue at hand, or from what I have experienced, is that there is an expectation for what and when things are going to happen to someone in their lifetime. You always hear stories about people finding their spouses in college, and all the cute little love stories that come with that, and then you expect that to happen to you as well. What I know now is that everyone's lives are different and instead of wasting time by waiting for my soulmate to show up, I should focus more on me.
So there you have it, folks if you're waiting around for your knight in shining armor, or your princess, or whoever you want to love you, remember only time will tell, and you shouldn't waste yours by waiting. I definitely am not.
