Are you available?

I am thinking today of the word “Available” and how people perceive themselves to be available or not. The context here is being available to allow your self to fall for someone or not.

If you allow your fears to get larger than life? Are you available?  maybe not.

Condemning your future to match your own past by allowing your past disappointments to control how you perceive your future opportunities?

Living on marginally and not taking risks, waiting for the other to make the first move, more like waiting for the other to show their intense emotion and commitment to loving you before you allow your self to love them back.

If you just broken up with someone, how soon can you be available? Is your availability a product of how peaceful you feel deep inside? How far have you processed your past relationships to a degree where you know what went wrong and that although saddened by the result; you are at peace with it?

Is it a product of how well you know your self,  know what you want and what you don’t want?

Does your availability get affected by how you assess the intentions of the other?

And last but not least, how intentional are you in showing your availability to the people around you?
