Every situation has two sides to it. Just like coins: heads or tails. The decision has two sides: an upside and downside. It’s up to us to weigh the pros and cons and choose. No matter what the decision is, even if it ends up being wrong, they shouldn’t complain about the choice they knowingly made. Before every decision, everyone goes through a “crossroads” stage. It’s the moment before you choose which direction you’re going. It’s a time to consider the opportunities, risks, and consequences. I’ve been at a crossroads for weeks, and I need to make a decision.
My situation has two sides: choose to remain single or pursue a new relationship. Being single and being taken are two sides of the same coin. Someone could choose either side for several reasons.
- Being single gives you the freedom to worry only about yourself, flirt with anyone and have more alone time.
- Being in a relationship provides you with someone who’s there in good times and bad, someone to go to events with, and someone you can talk to whenever you need advice.
I thought I wanted to be single. I thought I needed to be single. Lately, I’ve been feeling lonely and missing aspects of a relationship. I need to decide whether I’m actually ready for a new relationship. Has it been long enough since my breakup? Am I resisting simply because I’m scared of starting something new? Whatever the reason, I have to figure it out fast. If I don’t then I’ll be stuck standing at a crossroads.
