Temporary Vs. Long-Term Relationships: Why to Appreciate What You Have Right Now by Jessica Lawrence
Think back to when you were a child. You saved your money to buy that perfect toy or that perfect article of clothing. You deemed it worth the wait, to save your money, instead of spending frivolously on something that was just bringing temporary happiness. I think that philosophy applies to relationships now.
Sure, we date around to "find that perfect person." But what if it leads nowhere? What if that person you like isn't going to be around forever? What if you know it won't last long term, but for now, it's better than nothing? I suppose it is a rhetorical question, one that only you can answer.
I once had someone tell me that it might be better to live in the moment, appreciate the love and attention you're getting now, even if you know the end is eminent. It was shocking to hear that, especially to me, someone who always looks at the big picture.
I'm trying to think of that philosophy daily. Life in the present. Appreciate what you have today. It might not be the end all, be all, but if it's making you happy, let it.
