There are many times when we allow our desires to out weigh our judgment. We can feel and see that things are not right, but yet we allow our desire to paint the picture prettier than it really is. The trick in life is to remember we can’t allow our desires to become obsessions especially in relationships.
If you pay close attention I believe that a person tells you a lot about themselvesin the first 5 - 10 minutes with their words as well as their actions. You will see a glimpse of the kind of things that make a difference as to whether or not you should or should not continue on with a relationship. The problem is that most of us don’t pay attention. We get caught up in the fairytale of what we hope can be. We continue on the journey until one day the fairytale becomes a nightmare and we are shocked that things have gone so wrong.
Many times we look back on a situation and realize that in actuality the red flags were waving in front of us the whole time. If we were to tell the story of our journey and what we thought we wanted so badly the red flags will stand out, and we will realize we chose to overlook them.
Love is not a myth, and having a great relationship is possible with the right person, but it is important to pay attention. If something doesn’t feel right, then it probably isn’t. You may have to kiss a few frogs to get to the prince or princess, but it is better to take your time getting to the fairytale, than to be trapped in a nightmare.
Are you using your judgment or being guided by your desires?
Love and blessings in divine order,
