    I think people may know deep inside what they want, but it can take SO LONG to find that. Really. So you meet a lot of people who aren’t what you want or need but you ask yourself if it might work. I’m an 8.5
    shoe, regular. Recently, I bought some vintage boots online 8.5, narrow. I know I’m not a narrow anymore. I knew that. But they were vintage and I thought maybe if they were broken in, I could fit them. Nope. They
    had to go back. It’s not that I don’t know my shoe size. Of course I know it. I just liked the boots and the price and was hopeful. But I was also aware that I might have to send them back.

    Is that settling? I don’t think so because I was prepared to send them back. I just try to be open. And that means being open to something ending.

    Very knowledgeable guests!

      That’s a really great analogy Autumn and I totally think that many of us take that approach to meeting new people, dating and even relationships.

      We know that people aren’t perfect, so we tend to give things a try…even if it’s not a perfect fit.

      I don’t think that’s a bad thing. However, once we identify that the person, the situation or the relationship doesn’t fit us, we must be willing to stop pursuing it.

      I believe it’s when we try to force people, situations and relationships to fit us that we run into a lot of the problems that we encounter.

      No, I don’t think it’s settling at all. It’s a part of life. We must give things a try. Sometimes they may fit and other times they may not. Yet, if they don’t fit, we must be willing to send them back.

      Thank you so much. I’m glad you enjoyed the guests and the episode.

      I appreciate you sharing your insight and amazing analogy too. Thank you!
