Before I met and married my husband, I was a serial dater.
I dated six guys–each for a year to a year and a half–before my husband. I usually only stayed single for a month or two before jumping into another relationship.
When I look back on those relationships, I knew way before the relationships ended that they weren’t the guys for me.
There was one guy in particular who was this amazingly nice guy. The kind of guy who would wash my car as a surprise, bring my roommate lunch when she was sick while I was working, and clean my apartment for me when I was swamped with work. He did anything he could to make me happy.
We dated for well over a year, but by the time we reached one year, I knew he wasn’t the one. I think he knew that I wasn’t the one, too. So, why didn’t we end it sooner? Well, I didn’t, because he was such a nice guy. I didn’t want to hurt his feelings. But, I also didn’t want to LOSE such a good guy.
I was terrified of the loss even though I wasn’t happy in the relationship.
When I finally broke it off, I felt overwhelming relief, because it was the right thing to do.
There have been many other times in my business and in my personal life where I’ve been scared to let something go even though it was the right thing to do. And, once I finally let it go, new opportunities opened up and I was so much happier.
If you don’t let go of the stuff that isn’t working, you don’t have room for the stuff that will work.
That’s what I’m talking about in today’s video:
Is there something you need to let go of? Is there something you need to stop doing? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
