If you have found that your happiness is on hold because of someone else, you need to understand that you have given away control over your own happiness. When you put your happiness in the hands of someone else, is it any wonder why you feel powerless? Aren’t you tired of waiting for someone else to do the right thing in order for you to be happy? If someone really loves you and wants to be with you, don’t they want you to be happy? Why aren’t they doing what is required of them to make you happy? Could it be they don’t really care about your happiness? Of course it could.
When make your happiness the responsibility of someone else they may show you just how irresponsible they can be. You should only allow someone to have control of your happiness to any degree if they have PROVEN to you they are up to the task. Sure, we all screw up a little here and there, but if the one you love screws up repeatedly, it is time to take that control away. They don’t deserve it. If you continue to allow them to have it, after they have shown you how badly they handle it, then it is on you.
Why would you give the key to your happiness to the person that makes you the most miserable? Let’s be honest. It really is up to you to find the joy and happiness in your life. So why are you attracting and seeking people, places and things that tend to make you unhappy? How many chances do you have to give to these same people, places and things before you will finally admit to yourself that these people, places and things will NEVER make you happy?
Look at the kinds of relationships you chose to enter and remain in. Were the signs there in the beginning that should have made you turn and walk away? Are the signs there NOW that you should turn and walk away? Are you happy now, or have you been miserable for a long time? Then what are you WAITING FOR? Stop talking about how miserable you are. Stop feeling like your luck is bad and accept that you refuse to let go of people and things that are bad for you. Take the bull by the horns and clean house!
Letting go of the past, letting go of what no longer serves you gives the universe the opportunity to bring new things in your life that can change it for the better. Give the NEW a chance, instead of the old. It no longer deserves it.
What are you waiting for?
