I'm slowly realizing that I don't need to be better than anyone else. You know when you break up with someone and they start dating someone new so everyone has an opinion on if they "upgraded" or "downgraded?"
I know for a fact that no matter if it is someone I date or someone I'm friends with, I am one of a kind and as are they. Whether a good or bad experience, I am a piece of every person's life that I meet and they are a piece of mine. I think that's why I have so much frustration with dating apps because it's almost as if you don't get to impact the person at all making it feel like you never existed.
As a human on this plan having the life experience that I am having I want to have as much of a positive intentional impact that I can. So the minor insignificant conversations that are had over dating apps feel unimpactful and slightly like a waste of resources. PLUS If I have to tell one more person what I do for a living and have dumb small talk I swear I'll snap.
Here is to navigating the world and trying to be authentic and joyful along the way.
