You can´t always get what you want …
So… Are you singing yet? If you are, you are probably in the right place at the right time. If you’re not singing, you are either too young or your taste in music is different from mine! Yes, it’s a Rolling Stones song, and I think its rather profound, because the next line says, ”If you try sometimes, you get what you need”.
We so often think we know what we want, we chase after it like blind mice, only to find that the thing we thought we wanted becomes our nemesis, a source of pain and undoing.
Those of us who remember this song have probably been through a lot of challenges in order to reach this point in our lives. Many relationships, good, bad, and ugly have come and gone, and we have hopefully learned a lot from our experiences. However, some of us still have the penchant to make the same mistakes over and over, and expect different outcomes.
If you are a woman, you may still go after the great looking guy with the well-toned body, fabulous designer clothes, and shiny sports car. Did you ever think about the time it takes to keep that body like that, the effort to keep the car shiny, and the clothes so pristine? Maybe, just maybe, he doesn’t have a lot of time left to look at you, instead of at his own reflection in the mirror!
If you are a man, watch out for the piranha. There is a reason for the “ha” at the end of the word! Try to look beyond a woman´s outward beauty and make sure that the inside is beautiful too. I’m not being a killjoy, I´m just warning you. As a guy, I´ve been there and done that!
