To Know Who's the One, Give Someone a Chance

If you've ever loved and lost, you eventually get to the point where you wonder if it's worth the risk of getting hurt again. Who wants to go through that pain?

To fear being hurt so much that you fear love, you delay destiny even further. Take it from me, I obsessed over studying how to know who's the one and sucked in all kinds of advice about not dating until I'm ready to get married and more.

But here I am almost 40 years old and still single -- and it's NOT because no one wanted me! So, what advice do I have for the younger generation?

Sometimes, after you've been hurt, you do need some time to heal. However, you can't let the pain of lost love prevent you from destiny.
 

Destiny is fluid, and changes, depending on the choices we make.


The huge mistake about destiny is that people don't understand it's all about free will. We can't just do whatever we want and eventually expect good things to happen to us. It is actually possible to miss our destiny and our calling throughout our entire lifetime.

It's also possible to miss the chance of ever being with the one. Therefore, I say to know who's the one, we have to give someone a chance. If we don't we'll end up alone for the rest of our lives.

So what makes me think I know so much about love?


I don't. I'm just speaking to you from my heart -- from the heart of a woman who's made many relationship mistakes. Please listen to me. If you don't give anyone a chance just because you've been hurt in the past, you not only damage yourself but you ruin another person's chance at happiness.
