If only there could have been an aunt, older cousin or some other woman in my life to have schooled me on the in’s and out’s of being involved with men.
Or maybe that brother, uncle or elder who could have given me the “this is how to handle a man” spill.
So much wasted time and energy could have been avoided. So much angst and frustration spared. The few tears I shed over a man, saved for a joyous occasion instead.
This quote that I ran across from a friend’s Facebook page should be framed. It should be the first paragraph of Relationship 101, but not just for the men and women who are still trying to muddle through a situation.
It applies to the relationships we have with our friends, our families and anyone else we may have to deal with.
Still, it really hits home when I relate it to my past dealings with men. The Rescue’s, Jekyll’s, Sybil’s and more.
Apply it how you like, here is this week’s quote:
“People don’t change. They stay exactly who they’ve been since day one.
Once you realize this and stop waiting on them to be who you want them to be, you’ll be able to move the fu*k on.”
Until there’s a cure for the hangovers…
This reminds me of a rather similar quote which I like: “The first time someone tells you who they are, listen.”
I like this one as well Matt. If only more people could tell you instead of you having to figure it out.
