If a person of interest tells you, “I’m not ready for a relationship.” By all means, “Believe them!” If they say, “I need to heal.” Step back and give them space. If their past relationship keeps surfacing into conversations with you that’s a red flag!
On the other hand, if they’re also saying, “I like you a lot,” or “I want to be with you,” Don’t Believe Them! The uncertainty speaks louder and should not be ignored. Quite naturally, you’ll want to believe and cling to the language of love but an indecisive person will only bring confusion and emotional turmoil into your life.
Just because you’re ready for a relationship doesn’t mean he or she is! You can’t just expect them to get over the pain from their past or sort through unresolved issues because you’re in their life. Healing takes times. There is no timetable that suggests when one comes into wholeness. Each person must go through the process at their own pace without feeling pressured or rushed.
Besides you deserve a person who can love you whole heartedly. So don’t be in a rush to commit to someone who you know isn’t ready. Save yourself from years of heartache and regrets. Be patient with yourself and allow God to send your one true love. You’ll be glad you waited!
