Waiting in Vain

without success or a result.

I don’t know anybody who likes waiting. While the word sounds like we are doing nothing, we are actually doing a lot. It takes a lot of effort to wait.

When we are waiting we aren’t just sitting around waiting for the phone to ring, we are usually trying to keep ourselves busy so we don’t focus on what we are waiting for. We are actually taking an action of staying where we are because there is a delayed reaction until a particular time or until something else happens.

That’s a mouthful! But you get what I’m saying. Waiting is exhausting!

I wait a lot for work. Auditions come in with this excitement and an energy of promise and I do them way before they are asked for. Once I hand them over to my agents, there is this process of waiting. Sometimes the jobs shoot within a week and other times they shoot a month from the audition. I try not to look at the callback dates because then I will focus on that instead of booking the job and if the date comes and goes, I get flustered. When this happens I’m off my game and then I am waiting for another audition to come in.

Maybe you are waiting on something now. You are probably doing everything possible to stay busy. This is a good thing to do because you won’t be so obsessed with what you are waiting for.

But waiting in vain for love is something none of us should ever do. To wait on someone implies we don’t love ourselves enough. If someone loves you, they don’t wait for anything, they see you for who you are and what you mean to them and they take action towards you. There is no waiting involved when you love someone because there is nothing to figure out.

Love doesn’t require a wait time. It’s just love. So if you are currently waiting on someone to decide whether or not you are the one for them, if you are enough for them or good enough for them, then please do yourself a favor and stop waiting. There are far too many people in this world who want what you want, so don’t wait for someone who doesn’t.

A telltale sign that a person isn’t on the same page with you is the action they take towards you. If they aren’t taking action, they are a distraction and you are perpetuating this endless cycle of waiting on someone who doesn’t know what they want.

The person who is your person will want to be with you, and there will be no waiting about it.
