No rush, there are many Romeo's

Nairobi - Last week I saw a denim skirt that would have looked really
good on me. I had the money to get it too but in my head I already knew what I
was willing to spend on it as compared to what the vendor would tell me. He
tells me double the price, he looks like he is judging me and estimating the
price. You know this Nairobi vendors and I knew he was trying to create a
shockwave in my system. I could have bought it but I did not. Not because I
could not afford it but because I knew it was not good for my money at that
To you it is just a skirt but to me it is an article that I
am about to get an article out of.
Timing. And when it comes to relationships we usually make
the worst or the rashest decisions because they would look good at the moment
as compared to if they are really good for us. Or the detriment they would have
on us in the long run.
You already know that man/woman is not going to be good for
you but because he looks good at the moment. Has said just the right things to
convince you he is the one for you. You have been single too long at do not
want to be any more (I can relate). They are here and now so why not.
Most people cry foul when things do not work and say that
they did not know but we always know. There is no fire without smoke we just
choose to ignore it. We always get that advice. We will get the warnings but we
will ignore it just because we can. It is not because people are stupid but the
best scam artists usually know the right season to strike. Same applies to
people who know your weaknesses. Are you desperate at the moment? Are you
lonely and wish for company? Do you look like you can’t hold it together for
even two seconds? That person will know that weakness and they will package
themselves so good that you will want to buy.
At times, the person is not bad and they suit you in every
way a future partner or spouse should but the hardest thing that can happen is
getting the right person but at the wrong time in your life. That is the
hardest decision the wiser people make. Not because they are being selfish but
because they know that they are not in the right way for them to allow this
person into their life.
What the majority of us do is not make the sacrifice and let
that person go but we keep them with us because we are afraid that we cannot
find something better or they will not be able to wait for us. Which is true.
Who wants to waste their time on someone who is not sure of themselves? Why
should they make that sacrifice?
That is how good relationships are destroyed before they
begin because they began at a time one or both people was not in the right
circumstances for it. That situation creates even bigger and worse lasting
effects that could have been avoided, only if someone understood the timing was
just not yet right,
I still think about that skirt, thing is, the first one got
bought and I had never even asked. I now asked about the second one and I am
sure it will be bought as well but I know if I am ready to get one I will just
go back and tell that vendor to get one for me. When that money is available.
