Two Minutes And I Busted A Nut: The Cupcake Chronicles (Part 2)
When a child is born, after you breast-feed him or her for a few weeks, maybe a month or two, you should throw that baby directly into the world. Leave the baby outside and expect it to find its way home. Not only do you risk that child dying, you risk someone calling the cops on your dumb a** for negligence. You may be thinking, no one is that stupid, but the sad reality is that some of us take the same approach with relationships.
Of course when we start a new relationship, we all get that magical high that makes us feel all bubbly inside. You go to sleep thinking about him or her. You wake up to or send, good morning texts and you are HAPPY. You try to contain yourself but sooner or later it starts to sip out.
Someone asks you how your day is going, and you instantly get the uncontrollable, diarrhea of the mouth. And just like that you have told the first person! And soon after the second, third….. PAUSE! No where in this equation did you calculate the risk factors behind this oh so impulsive act of yours…
Before you open your mouth to tell, move your fingers to tweet, or pick up your phone to post that “adorable” picture of both of you, take a second to THINK! I am not saying that your relationship should be a SECRET (well only if you’re a side piece.)
But you should consider: How close are the people to you that are about to receive this information? Do these people have your best interest at heart? Is your relationship ready for all the “criticism” its about to receive? Do they really need to know?
Someone once told me, “If you have something good in your hand, you hide it.” (I hope I quoted that properly) Truth of the matter is, when your relationship is still young and growing keep it to yourself. Share with those that are CLOSEST to you, who have your best interest at heart. Everyone does not need to know your business. When the time is right for both of you to share with people it will happen.
Anything earlier than the appointed time is like the guy who gives you the good strokes for a full 2 minutes then busts a nut. You’ll end up disappointed thinking: WTF happened?
P.s Part 3: The Final Chapter is coming.
