Fighting Temptations...

"The grass is not always greener on the other side", that is what they say. I say...you wont ever know the shade, tent, smell and feel of the grass if you never experienced it. If you never walked on it, you never rolled through it, you never played Frisbee on it on a sunny day. You never even maintained the grass, kept it low. How can you truly say that the grass isn't greener?

I have said time and time again that I believe experience is the best teacher. Always! I have recently been seeing and watching people sacrifice good opportunities, and great relationships because they are curious about what life is like on the other side of the fence. NOW...here is the stipulation. Even though I think that it is important that you experience life and go with your gut, it is extremely important that you do not let GLUTTONY and SELFISHNESS be the reason why you do it.

There is a big difference between the young lady who has a great, great, guy who makes it his mission in life to make sure that she is good. He makes her feel like a queen, helps her when she needs help, comforts her when she needs it, caters to her needs, respects her, in tune with her emotionally, and spiritually and is an all around great addition to who she is.

Compare this to the woman who stays in a relationship with a man who she hardly sees, who has to make an appointment to spend time with her man. A man who makes her and her needs an option. Does not cater to her mentally, spiritually, or emotionally. Makes her feel like she is just another one.

Which scenario is worth taking a test drive if another person or opportunity comes though. I can say that I would never ever tell someone who is unhappy, even if they were in a relationship not to remain OPEN to the possibilities of what you want in your life if it is clearly not present.

Unfortunately, what is happening is people who are in some pretty great relationships are not respecting them. They are stepping out to see if they can get more...they are interested in being GREEDY and not being in a state of gratitude with the person who is in their lives, who doe not deserve to be betrayed.

I think it is a sad situation when you have everything that you NEED and WANT and you still refuse to fight off the urge to explore more. At what expense do you hurt the next person? Do you even care? It seems that some of us will just never ever be satisfied.

Before you decide to break that person's heart and make a deposit into your own karma..think....How much your neighbor wish they had someone to love and grow with as you already have.

Have a wonderful day!!!!
