One of the things I’ve learned recently is that asking for time is acceptable. That sometimes you just need some time. In my case, I asked the universe for some time. I need some time before I feel that I can commit to some of my full adult responsibility. I need the time to figure out what I like, what I love and who I really am. So this morning, I asked for seven years. In each case, the amount of time you need is different. I know for me, I need time to finish school (undergraduate and graduate), get a job and be financially stable. But at the same time, I need time in other areas. In my friendships, I need time and space to express myself. In my romantic relationships, I need time and space to express myself, but in a different way. So please remember, ask for time. If you feel you need it, you do.
