Meet Me In The Middle...

By: John Patrick Adams

Wouldn’t it be great if we could find someone who met us dab center??? You know, the middle???  Someone who wanted to see us just as much as we wanted to see them???  Someone who didn’t mind driving to our side of town because they knew we didn’t mind driving to theirs???  Wouldn’t it be cool to meet someone whose 100 matched our 100???  Someone whose interest complimented ours???  Someone who may not share our passion, but supported it just as hard as we supported theirs???  I’m talking about the middle and common ground???  Not an inch to the left or right, but right in the center of both of our universes…

 

Sometimes it seems as though this person doesn’t exist, as if we have to compromise or pick up the difference…  The difference of love, support, and understanding…  It feels like we have to change to accommodate who they are, become who they want us to be, and lose a part of ourselves to feel equal to someone who isn’t whole…  Wouldn’t it be great if we could find someone who met us dab center???  You know, the middle???  The middle ground where they were willing to shift things around??? Willing to bend so we could lean??? Willing to put us before themselves because they knew we put them before ourselves???  Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone who is equally happy to see us??? Equally driven to please us??? Equally passionate to support us???  Wouldn’t it be nice to just meet in the middle???    

 

What I know for sure is…  No one is perfect, but there is the perfect person for you…  You know your equal, the one who equally will love you just as you love them…  The one who will equally want you just as you want them…  The one who will equally respect and treasure you just as you  respect and treasure them…  The one who will make you feel equally as good as you make them feel… Stop wasting time with people who aren’t equally compatible, interested, and in love with you…  People who expect you to do more than what they are willing to do…  Stop wasting your time on people who can't or are unwilling to see your value as you see theirs…  When you find your equal, they would have traveled the same distance as you…  Not an inch more to the left or right, but right in the center of both of your universes…
