What do you do when you find yourself being swept away? Tricky, yes? How do prevent thinking about this person more and more each day. How do you get to know more about this person and the feelings you can't seem to suppress before investing your heart? Before asking yourself, is "it" love? Ask yourself, "it" real?
So many times we jump into what seems to be an ideal relationship, later to find out "it" was all a hoax! The person you thought you were giving your heart to has changed, become someone you no longer recognize. What do most people do? They go back to the beginning, when things were good, and "loving" and try to rekindle those feelings. Sometimes, resetting boundaries and expectations can be beneficial. But don't fool yourself, sometimes you need to move on. Easier said then done?
Grace Simms moved on. So she thought. Jess had imprinted her heart with his words and expertise. He was "perfect", and she was never able to find another man to measure up. Does this sound familiar? Maturity was Grace's salvation. Once Jess was back in her life at age thirty-one, she was able to distinguish between love and fear.
"It's" part of our nature to be hunters, gatherers, or someone who mates for life. There are people who love the challenge of the "catch". Catch and release. Catch and release. There are those who crave the attention of many mates. However, there are those who are devoted to one person. Be clear as to which type of person you want in your life. Be clear as to which type you are as well. Be aware that the guy/gal at the bar who stares you down, says all the right things, and seems like your soul mate, may be your worst nightmare. Sound pessimistic? Ask Grace Simm's.
