I have spent the last few years of my life being reminded that I should just wait. Wait on others to define my goodness, my health, and my love. All had to be validated by someone else first, to be “real”. I was taught I had to have the patience for them to decide, decipher tests, or just simply have the time when they were not too busy for me, if I was worth it. Waiting was an admirable virtue. I allowed that. I recognized early on that anything, from anybody is better than nothing at all. So I learned how to wait. I let it go way beyond simple and necessary sharing and taking turns and it became about earning others approval so I might be good enough to be first. I am not blaming anyone but me, I allowed this! But…life is happening now I do not have any more time to wait or waste!
