People do what people actually want to do.
This simple statement holds itself to be true in 99% of peoples lives. If a person really wants to do a certain thing, and they have their heart set on it, then more than likely they will accomplish it. This especially holds true in a lot of relationships you may encounter, if you haven’t already encountered it. When someone doesn’t show up when they say they will, always cancels plans, or just doesn’t come around even though they have ample opportunity to, chances are they really don’t want to be a part of your life.
Realizing and accepting this may be a very hard pill to swallow, but is essential for ones happiness. To combat this it is essential that you cut the people out of your life who make no time for you when they have the opportunities to. Doing so will free your mind eventually, and will also free your calendar. Now you have time to spend with someone who wants to spend that time with you as much as you want with them. Starting new relationships may seem difficult at first, but change is an essential function of life. We must embrace change and let the things go in our lives that are broken, and that have no possible way of being fixed. You ultimately can’t make someone make time for you, so it is imperative that you find someone who has no qualms with and that is enthusiastic about you, and vice versa.
NEVER(!) chase love, affection or attention. If it isnt given freely by another person it isnt worth having.
