You hear it so often, either from potential partners telling you why it won’t work, or friends talking about their relationships, or from your own mouth, to someone else. The context of Right person. Wrong time.
But in reality, there’s no such thing. And there are totally going to be people you date due to timing!
There will be people who represent what you need most at that point in your life; people who look and feel like living and breathing manifestations of what you want.
As Heidi Priebe wrote,
“Here’s a simple truth that I think we all need to face up to: the people we meet at the wrong time are actually just the wrong people.”
And to clarify:
The truth about the timing being wrong is that it’s nothing more than the world’s flimsiest reason not to try. It’s the simplest excuse to pack it in. It’s a pre-designed reason to bow out. Saying that the timing is wrong is saying nothing more than ‘You aren’t worth any inconvenience.
The right person is always because good love is always.
There’s no such thing as, “I just wish I’d met them two years later/one year sooner/some indistinct other places in time and maybe space where the things I’ve made into blockers would magically make this meant to be.”
It’s not “time,” sweetie, and it’s not space. It’s us rather than excuses, you only see opportunity
Here’s what you do when it’s right: you make it work. You don’t even think about making it work, or how. You just do.
The right people are timeless. The right people make you want to throw away the plans you originally had for one and follow them into the hazy, unknown future without a glance backwards. The right people don’t make you hmm and haw about whether or not you want to be with them; you just know… That no matter what you thought you wanted before, this is better. Everything is better since they came along. They are “the plan.” The plan is them. You rewrite your story so that they are the spine.
