Getting out of a situation with someone will leave you with a lot of free time that you forgot that you even had. Now that you finally have all this time on your hands what do you do with it?
Back in 2012 at my first college I was in what most would call a relationship for about 5 months. He consumed most of my time other than my school work. We would spend all our time together. We eventually broke up due to him stepping out of our relationship, and about a month later I started talking to someone else. While I was talking to this new person I reflected on my past relationship and this situation I was in and realized that I did not even know what I wanted. I had to actually sit back and ask myself what exactly was I looking for?
From 2013-2016 I focused mainly on myself. I did talk to a few guys here and there, but I wasn’t trying to dive into a relationship. I focused on school and getting to know myself more. Doing that allowed me to figure out what I wanted out of a relationship. That time allowed me to asses the qualities I wanted in a partner. That time allowed me to mature and see if I was ready to be in a relationship at all. This time allowed me to evaluate my worth. It allowed me to learn not to settle for anything.After taking three years to get myself where I needed to be emotionally and mentally I figured out what I needed from my partner, and also what I needed to give to my partner.
Take some time to work on you, because bouncing around from person to person trying to find what the other person lacked is not going to get you nowhere. You don’t want to be plagued with the constant feeling or thought possibly not being able to find what you’re looking for, or worse settle for what you have now, because you feel that you won’t or can’t do any better. Working on you is really worth it in the long run.
