Are you guilty of telling people you don’t want to waste time? It’s a demoralizing expression that devalues others and is hurtful by implying that anyone who isn’t your soul mate is of no use to you. This has the opposite effect of achieving the closeness we desire. We say our time has been “wasted,” yet most of us waste incredible amounts of time stringing others along and not committing or ending the interaction. Other times we binge watch Netflix and endlessly scroll through Instagram.
Sometimes we continue to sleep with people we don’t really care about. Other times we keep toxic people in our lives out of convenience. Other times still, we lie to ourselves with the famous, “I don’t want to hurt them” excuse when in reality we don’t have the strength to do what has to be done.
If you don’t know where you stand in your relationship, whether you’re in the beginning stages, the middle or end, we encourage you to tune in.
