Ever feel like you just barely missed someone who could have been the one? Maybe you guys had just been in the same place a week apart or met someone with only a limited amount of time to spend with them. Whatever situation it may be, I’m here to tell you: I know the feels.
I brought in TJ on this episode to discuss those “missed” opportunities with people who we think could have been special. He shares with us his story about this girl who he had been admiring from afar on social media. To simply put, they were kind of a match-made in heaven; they like the same music, they had similar senses in humor (online humor anyway), and they were in sync on the twitter game. It took him a while to initiate anything more than just liking statuses or retweeting, until finally he decided to go for it and message her directly. But by then, it was too late.
In his words, he almost felt like they had just missed each other, or rather were meant to be star-crossed. This idea of star-crossed is kind of lame, but honestly, it can be described in a lot of situations. But nonetheless, I don’t necessarily think that this is a bad thing. I think this happens for a reason. People come and go from our lives for a reason, no matter how short or how long they were there for. And who’s to say they may not appear again? That’s the uncertainty of life, as confusing as it is, that’s the hand we’re dealt with. As long as you put your best effort into it, that’s all that matters. So here’s my advice to all of you: be bold and don’t be afraid to stick yourself out there. In the end, as long as you tried, that’s all that matters. If it was meant to be, it will be. Que sera, sera.
