This Is How Being Suspicious Can Open Your Heart!

I connected with Ed on an online dating app.  We were texting back and forth and I (sort of!)  started interrogating him.

“Are you really local?”

“Where do you live?”

“What’s your address?”

I didn’t say “are you lying”, but I was being suspicious…

“Can I ask you a question?” he asked.

“Sure,” I said.   

 “Why are you suspicious of me?” 🤔 

“Hmmmm…..good question…..I guess because I know there are scammers out there,” I answered as if that made perfect sense. 😬 

“Well, have you had a bad experience?”

I looked and saw that I really haven’t. There’s been some annoying people 😏 that I’ve had to block, but I really haven’t had such a terrible experience. 

I proceeded to tell him about a couple of my friends who did have bad experiences. But through the telling of it, I realized, wow, I have two bad stories and that has made me a suspicious and fearful person.🙊 

“I’ve been acting like I’ve been terrorized or hurt or something. I’ve just been very suspicious and fearful,”  I said.  

“Look, live your life, open yourself up, go for it. Don’t be so closed,” he added.

I did some thinking about this.  What I realized is that I’ve had some disappointing relationships.  I’m afraid of making another mistake, that I don’t know how to pick people, that I can’t trust my instincts 😮‍ 💨.

I was reading a book called, ‘You Are Awesome’ 📘 It’s about failure. Thes guy who wrote the book had ten failed websites👨‍💻 before he had a winning one. Baseball players ⚾ who have the most success, also have the most failure. They just keep going. 👉 Failure doesn’t mean anything. Failure is just the way to success. 

I realized, I got gun-shy when my marriage and last relationship didn’t work out. I didn’t want to put myself out there again. 🙅‍♀️ It’s easier to be suspicious than to be vulnerable. 

“You’re going to scare everyone away if you keep acting this way,”  he added.  

I got quiet for a minute. What he was saying was true.

“Thank you,” I said.👍

I opened up my heart. ❤️
