Family, Friends, Career Goals, Love, Money, Travel. What is your priority? We all have different priorities and these shift and change at different times. We can have a conjunction of priorities, a selection of two or 3. But to have all that above, well over a lifetime sure, I believe that is possible (I really hope so), but not all at once. One thing has to prevail over the rest. For young, naive me that has usually been love. Looking over my life, I have always put a high priority over love. Maybe it was to many fairy tales as a child or too many romantic comedies as a teen. But love has always been the one thing I knew I wanted when I was unsure about anything else. Whether that is a true deep down want or from my socialization I couldn’t tell you. However of all the things above, love is the biggest risk. It very much leaves you at the hands of the priorities of another, who may not prioritize it like you do. Love is a scary priority, with a lack of control. The last 6 months, without really meaning to, my prioritize have definately shifted. Love is no longer a priority.(feels a bit strange to tell you the truth) Maybe one day it will be again, I kind of hope it will, but not for a while. It’s funny that turning 23 and gaining that extra year, has made me realise just how young I really am and how precious this stage of my life really is.
I won’t let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me …. anymore.
