What is it about resisting that is so accommodating that we continue to do it? We know our thoughts are energy and when what we desire appears, we resist it. We push it away in disbelief that it’s there and we continue to long for it.
The art of allowing is in intriguing concept. Change your thoughts you change your life is an understatement.
I began (reluctantly) dating again. I know I didn’t want to continue to be single but I wasn’t sure if I wanted another person in my life to deal with at the same time. I was contacted by a man one day and we started talking. After a couple of weeks, while we were talking on the phone he made a statement I will never forget. He said he could tell I’ve been hurt bad before and that he would wait until I got past it. I couldn’t respond. I stopped breathing. I simply didn’t know what to say.
Needless to say that was a sleepless night. I realized he was right and that I really did want someone in life again but here I was pushing him away. The following day we didn’t speak; he sent me a text that simply read “good night.”
Another day went by and while talking to a coworker I had a slip of the tongue and called him my boyfriend. I felt that it may have been presumptuous considering the couple days before; this wasn’t something we had discussed yet. That evening I sent him a text telling him my slip up and that I was going to stop resisting us if it was ok with him. His response was simply “of course it’s ok with me.”
There has been no doubt in either of our minds since. While this is new, I found being open (as scared as I was) with him lead me to where I wanted to be. Sometimes we have to get out of own way.
