The past few months I’ve been pondering the idea of relationships. But more specifically romantic relationships that blossom from a really great friendship. As we all know, the sage advice that everyone gives you is the whole friendship first, relationship later deal. I get it. I really do cause you’ve already established this really amazing friendship and now you’re ready to take it to the next level. They know you like the back of their hand and you’re already two peas in a pod. You know you click with them already. Now here’s the tricky part (for some anyways), actually moving from one zone to another. I’ve been thinking long and hard about this and I believe the most difficult step is to actually over come the fear of the future. You can’t live in the “what if” mind frame. “what if this turns out badly?” or “what if I get annoyed with them?” or “what if I end up hating them?” YOU HAVE TO TAKE RISKS! If you don’t, you’re just letting life pass you by and you’re going to miss all the opportunities it throws at you. If it wasn’t meant to work out it won’t but you can’t live in a moment of stasis. That’s just not the nature of the world. Change is what keeps us going. So take that plunge into the unknown cause it could lead to something fantastic that you never dared dream about.
