Give relationships time to grow into their full potential. Don’t be so quick to make conclusions or assumptions based on what you think you know. Instead, really give it a chance to blossom. Y’all know I’m not keen towards 2nd chances, but that first chance is everything.
I think of fruit when I think about this rule. It is completely fine, and actually encouraged, to pick fruit while it is still unripe. Don’t eat it though, you won’t be satisfied. You need it in your possession so no one else could take it off the tree. Just keep checking on it to make sure it’s ripening the way it should be. The fruit itself has enough energy to continue to ripen on its own, ever since you took it down from the tree. You were choosin. Early. So now, you can wait. But when it is finally ripe…it’s sweet and you will be happy you waited.
I am working on my own patience now. It’s hard, but I know it will be worth it in the end.
