I think back... in High school I could tell when my teacher had moved my desk even just a tile.
It threw me.
I hold on to things way past too long.
I never know if I might one day need them... there is a security in knowing I have them.
There are certain things that I have to have a certain way...
Even if someone else has done it ( and has done a fine job), I have to redo it.
But I never thought it went much further than my little quirks...
Today it was pointed out to me that because I don't adjust well to change, I can't move forward in a relationship.
Because I hold on to things too long, I haven't let go of things from my past relationships, which is preventing me from moving forward with a new relationship.
Because I have an image of how a relationship should be ...and so far none of them have been that "certain way", I can't moved forward because there are no do overs.
Who knew breaking up with a guy would be such an eye opener?
and that he would be so open to opening my eyes...
“We can't be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don't have something better.”
