If I have been debating whether to leave this relationship or not, chances
are Ive been keeping one eye open for the type of partner Id like to have.
Perhaps Ive met someone who is unattached right now, and seems to have
many of the traits Im looking for in an ideal partner. I may be wondering whether I
should take the chance and end my current relationship for good, before this other person
gets into a new relationship themselves.
Have I ever had the experience of standing in a grocery checkout line, and
enviously eying the shorter lineup a few counters away? Maybe I remembering switching to
the shorter lineup, only to find out this line went even slower than the one I left!
If I look at my present relationship, I can see that my hopes about what
would happen - and the reality of what has actually taken place - usually differ in many
ways. Why do I think my crystal ball would be more accurate with any new person?
Just for Today
Today, if Im debating about whether to leave or stay in this
relationship, Ill try to get some direction based on the merits of this
relationship, without the distraction of a crystal ball aimed at a possible new partner. I
have a difficult enough time trying to see the present clearly, let alone trying to see
Some look so hard for the roses over the next hill, that
they fail to see the wildflowers around them. - BH
