Audio Blog: Would you be in a relationship with you?

A lot of the topics for my blogs have been inspired by conversations with friends, whether I say little or a lot, there’s usually something that sparks a trail of thought for potential posts. Problem is, when I don’t rush to get those written down, they shrivel back up, though gasping for air, in this sardine tin I call, my mind.

“Part of growing up is being able to find solutions to your own problems. At the end of the day, if you can’t do it, there’s no amount of asking for advice that’s going to help because it’s you that has to implement this advice.”

Last night, I decided to not procrastinate quite so much and take action when the thoughts were fresh and relevant. There was no time to write this down, it would have turned into an epic piece of waffle, and I can’t say that waffle hasn’t been transformed into ramble, but I ran with the momentum at least. No edits, I’ve recorded and uploaded this just how it is and as you may have guessed the question: ‘Would you be in a relationship with you?’ will crop up in this audio, eventually, when I get to the point.

“Like I say to everyone, which is probably slightly negative, I feel like your twenties are just – can be – slightly overrated. This kind of image of being ‘twenty something’ which is thrust upon everyone, isn’t what it actually is, which is why I love my website so much and writing because at the end of the day, I think I present a honest account, even if it is slightly self-depreciating, I just like to be honest.”

Apologies for it being so long, I guess I do like the sound of my own voice after all…

“You need to think about the value that you’re adding to other people’s lives. And before you think about the value that you can add to another person’s life, you need to think about the value that you’re adding to yourself.”

    Raw audio blog. You made some good points, like yes the transition period does not happen automatically, I went to University thinking I knew myself and knew what I wanted, when in actual fact that was not true, so I am glad I did not really date at uni as then somebody would not have been dating the real me. I believe when you meet the right person you meet the right person. Small steps: make progress then you will get nearer to the outcome.

      Though I agree with you Elliot to a certain extent, I think dating is important because it helps you discover the kind of person you’d like to be with in the future and also you learn a lot about yourself during the process, however, being in a relationship, yes, I believe you have to be the type of person first, that you’d like to attract. (If you want something meaningful that is). Thanks so much for listening and taking the time to comment. Mwah

    Pleasure was all mine 🙂 You are right about the dating point, I have certainly learnt things from girls and what I want in a girl. Would I date myself, although I am not exactly loaded with cash, money is not the most important thing, still maybe. It is a question which makes you explore yourself and tests your ego and self esteem.
