But we’re not, people settle, life gets complacent and we all put up with it because that’s the way it should be. We settle for the average rather than strive for extraordinary.
Instead of doing what we’re told, staying with someone because we’re afraid of being alone, why not charge ahead and take control of our futures?
Sorry to sound a little preachy, but if you love me you’ll just deal. If not, feel free to click out at any moment.
I’m 23 and always end up turning every relationship I have into an instant search for the ring, why? Because I hate dating, it’s ten thousand times more comfortable to just stay the way things are. In our sweatpants, on the couch, watching Family Guy reruns…what girl wouldn’t want that.
But, and this is a big but, it never works out. I end up looking for something else, something more fulfilling, focusing more on my career, something to pull me away from reality so I can remain comfortable while still kicking butt in another part of my life.
Unfortunately that doesn’t quite work, like ever.
I’m sure someone can live comfortable and be satisfied, but I don’t want to ever be “satisfied.” I think I’m too hungry for knowledge (and, let’s be real, new food) to stay where I am right now. Which is why it’s important to know when to move on.
When to move on from a stage in your life, a relationship, a job, a place of living, a friend…know one can tell you when it’s right. Just like you can sense fall coming, you’ll feel this too.
