All of us at least once per life had these heart to heart talks at the kitchen.
Lately I was playing the role of that shoulder to cry on. My friend was asking me an love advice about her boyfriend, who not paying her much attention.
And yes, I had a good answer to stop her tears. Want to share this answer with you as it is – in form of parable.
Just imagine, you are lost at foreign city, you are trying to find the way back to hotel (no maps or mobile device for this, sorry), weather is terrible… Finally you are feeling so exhausted and thirsty, that entering random seems to be cozy cafe on your way. You are asking about glass of water, but this is special cafe – they don’t have water, juice, tea, only coffee….
But you don’t like coffee, actually, you feel terrible after drinking it – insomnia, fast heartbeating, blood pressure goes up…. So you understand the consequenses, right?
But you feel so exhausted, you don’t want to go out in that crazy weather and search for other cafe with your favourite tea, you feel that you couldn’t make any step and agreed for coffee… Yes, you have brief few minutes relief drinking hot tasty coffee. And have this all – blood pressure, heart beating, insomnia… Who forced you? No one.
Lesson: the so with love, you shouldn’t turn your need for love into the thirst for love.
If you sees person mistreat you time after time, you know the consequenses, right?
So, go out and got yourself desirable jinger tea!
But you must choose that scary uncertainty. Because everything have it’s price. Difference only: now you are paying your tears for shit, when better pay with your smiled eyes for love.
