Earlier today, I am the street going to Manunggal; waiting for a Vhire that will take me to Cebu City. While waiting, a tricycle driver ask if he can bring me to the nearest terminal where I can surely get a ride going home.
I clearly said “NO I’ll just wait for a Vhire that will take me in.” It’s about to rain and there were already 3-5 Vhires passing by; nobody took me in. I was patient, I kept on waiting, until finally, a Vhire stopped by.
I was happy I was patient. I wasn’t in a hurry anyway; and besides, my budget wasn’t really friendly to me. I have already rejected an invitation because I have already reach the maximum. If I would, I will be out of money to bring me home.
Saying NO is okay; it will not disappoint the other, it will help them save time waiting for your decision. If it’s a NO in the end, better say it now and stop acting and giving false hopes just to have someone to keep chasing you.
Do something else while waiting for the one for you; keep yourself busy with other things; become even more successful while giving chance to others who have good intentions. Wanting could be dangerous, if not being controlled.
If you allow anger to kick in, it might control you. For now, do what is right and that is respecting everyone’s decision even if it’s already very painful. If it’s intentional then go ahead move on with your next agenda; pursuing a man is not a good idea, let them go, so you will be free.
Say “NO” to toxicity. Instead, love yourself; love your family, your friends and of course career/job. Prioritize those who cares for you, not those who doesn’t even give a damn.
