Thought of the moment: “Live like you are on top of the world and soon you will be.” – sjp
Millions of single people have been faced with this….the telephone call that never arrives! Although, most believe that it is the females that are usually sitting around waiting for the phone to ring. It also happens to the male population. Who knows who started this cruel, hurtful habit, but maybe someday it will stop.
There have been countless conversations across the globe in homes, coffee shops, barbershops, schools, and the mall, about the “never received telephone call”. Some of the conversations concern the nonchalant way one person blew off another person. However, most discussions surround the heartache of the person that did not receive the call.
The first reaction the injured party is: What is wrong with me? Am I not pretty enough? Am I too fat? Why am I not good enough? A person that already has low self esteem may tend to go in a darker place: I am worthless.
It is no way your fault! It is time to stop accepting accountability for someone else’s bad behavior. There is nothing wrong with you and you are just as pretty as you were before you crossed paths with this person. Of course you are good enough; most of us are a work in progress. We are continually growing and changing. Be confident in yourself! Sometimes we have to go through heartache to get to a more promising and happier place in our life. If you feel you are comfortable and secure with yourself then good for you. If you struggle with issues about yourself, then try to work on them. Everyone is worthy and valuable, find your purpose. These scenarios are not the reason you did not receive that telephone call. So, empower yourself to stop accepting bad behavior from the opposite sex. Realize that the other person has the issue and you are just fine.
There are two ways to handle this situation that will lead to a more confident you. First, hold the other person accountable. If there is not a valid reason for not placing the call, leave that person alone. They have shown you that they are not good enough for you. Then simply move on. The second way is to determine if there is a legitimate reason for not calling. If there is, try to be understanding and be willing to give that person a second chance. A lot of relationships start out rocky but end beautiful. However you choose to handle the situation, it is your choice. You have empowered yourself to take back the control and your self confidence.
If you happen to be part of the population that allows someone to wait and hope for your telephone call, then shame on you! You are emitting a negative aura around yourself. So when something happens in your life and you wonder “why me?” reflect back to the pain you have caused others. Is it worth it?
Be good to yourself and be good to others.
