Dash of Sass: Real Love is Never Halfway There
Dealing with “in-between” people…it’s exhausting, isn’t it? They never let you know where you stand with them…they give you just enough of their attention and time to keep you on their hook but yet they still swim free…they disappear for weeks and even months on end but manage to come around just frequently enough to keep you from moving on. For them, it’s a win-win…no real commitment required, all the perks of a significant other without the responsibilities, and they have someone 100% devoted to their 50% effort.
But for you…it’s a lose-lose. You love them but can never have them…you give but never get anything back…you put in full-time effort for part-time love. But guess what? That’s not love. Love matches your hustle. Love cherishes your heart. Love gives with no thought of taking. Love shows up when it’s messy and not just when its convenient. Love exhilarates you…it doesn’t exhaust you. So if you’re wasting your time on an “in-between person,” I say it’s time to stop letting them decide whether they want to be in or out of your life and let them relocate permanently to “out.” Because anyone who REALLY wants to be in your life will be full-time, all-in, no holds barred, no excuses, IN YOUR LIFE.
Love never straddles the fence. Love never evades or dodges or ignores or eludes.
Love. Shows. Up.
Anything less…isn’t love.
