Sometimes, we hold onto a dream that just won’t happen, like waiting for someone to give the attention or love in the way that we crave. It’s futile. It’s like sitting at the bus stop for a bus that doesn’t pass there. We can wait and wait. We might even see buses pass by. Just not the one we want.
Some people are just not able to give us what we hope from them (parents, friends, colleagues). Thinking that maybe this time they will finally give me the love or support or whatever is like wishing for a bus to show up even though it never comes down this route.
Accept the reality that it won’t happen. That bus will never come. Go on living without that bus.
