💕Calling in the One: Day 14
My romantic relationships tend to take on a very specific pattern. They all begin straight out of a fairy tale with a man being a perfect gentleman, giving me lots of attention and affection, saying all the right things, and me seeing him the the highest light. Then, something inevitably happens to snap me out of the hypnotic trance I was in and disillusionment begins to set in. My trust issues get triggered and I get really distant or he does. We eventually miss each other and try to make something out of the connection, but it's usually not really worth it.
🔼What, specifically, would I have to give up in order to change this pattern?
I would have to give up certainty being my #1 need and prioritize love and connection. I'd also have to pause, breathe, and get all of the facts before I get angry about behaviors I find unacceptable for someone I'm talking to or dating. I've said and done things that I inevitably regret because I was being stubborn, and it caused irreparable damage to the relationship. I also have to maintain my standards and not get weak and give in when I want attention or affection. I had an amazing astrology reading with astrologer Anne Ortelee and she explained to me that my chart tends to create triangles, so I have to find out what the triangle is before I invest emotionally. If it's another woman, then that's a no-go!
