Handle your own affairs so that they can be handled right!
Is everyone familiar with the game 'Telephone'? In the game one person whispers a message to another. The message is passed through a line and the person on the end relays the message out loud. Sometimes the message is unclear and it's completely different by the time it reaches the last person.
This game became my reality a couple of weeks ago. I told my friend about a small crush I had. When the opportunity arose for me to talk to him, anxiety set on. In a fit of panic I asked her to talk to him for me and scope him out. I unfortunately made the mistake of saying "see what he thinks of me." A few days later, she reported back to me with a guilty look. My friend went ahead and told the guy that I liked him and then asked him to be my prom date. (By the way, prom is about five months away.). I see this guy on a regular basis and our first encounter since the "telephone game" incident was uneasy. Whenever I was around him I felt like the room had no oxygen.
I gathered a few things from this situation:
1) If I truly want something I should get it myself.
2) If I am asking for help obtaining what it is that I want, I should give specific instructions.
3) If I'm supposed to be with my crush, God will work it out. What God has for me, is for me!
As teens we should do some things for ourselves. It's okay to ask for help, but make sure you give specific instructions to the person passing the message. Also, don't worry about what your crush thinks of you. If they like you they will get to know you and accept who you are. Everything happens for a reason! If you're supposed to be with a certain someone, you will be.
Sending out positive vibes, I challenge you to take action for yourself and ask for help only if you need it. Have a wonderful week!
