Right Girl, Wrong Time?

There’s a song by John Langston called “Right Girl, Wrong Time” that is in my head and I just can’t shake it… It reminds me of people saying that I met Andrew at the wrong time, that he just wasn’t ready. Now there’s the new guy and this divorce situation has me terrified. Am I setting myself up for heartbreak or is there a chance that he really is at peace with it and in a place to move on? I made peace before ending my 8 1/2 year relationship. We weren’t married but we might as well have been, I mean, we shared all the same things that a married couple does. A house, cars, etc. But the point is, when I ended it for the last time, I knew what I was doing. I knew, without a doubt in my mind or heart, that I had done EVERYTHING in my power to make it work and it was time… We loved each other, we tried (probably too many times) and it just wasn’t meant to be a forever thing. It broke my heart but it didn’t keep me from wanting to find that right person… I guess I am trying to justify that maybe there’s a chance?

My friends have mixed opinions. Some swear he can’t be ready to move on and I should run for the hills and others tell me life is too short and I should give it time and see where it goes.

I get anxious. The more time that passes by, the more my heart feels things and the more vulnerable I am… The last thing I need right now is heartbreak. It might just break me as a whole. But this boy… *Smile* This boy makes my heart happy and I can’t help but to be hopeful… 

*Sigh* I’ve asked for God to guide me through this. It’s not clear to me yet what I should do. But… I don’t want to be the right girl at the wrong time… Again. I want to be the right girl at the right time, with the right guy at the right time. I want to fall in love with someone who is ready for me. Someone who won’t leave me… I’m *so* tired of people leaving…
