Day 16: Window Periods

Everything in life has a window period...

Life is the proverbial window periods to beat all window periods.
If we take too long deliberating over the pros and cons of a situation
or any opportunity you could find yourself in the distressing
position of realising that your window period has passed.

This applies in relationships too.
This week I've been hearing of instances where
exes having been quite happy on distancing themselves
from a former significant other are all of a sudden
trying to hit comebacks like their name is Arnold Schwarzenegger.

When it comes to relationships that have ended,
I say the best kind of window period you're gonna get
is the two week to a 3 month type window period
(I've heard of isolated cases of more extended periods,
but lets stick with the more common norm).

Calling peeps up when memory lane got re-routed 5 years earlier
is not only something ridiculous, it's just plain sad.

So when you've messed up and missed a window period for whatever the reason,
suck it up,
admit you lost a great potential something,
and vow not to let the next good window period go without acting on it.

That's all folks :-)


PS Pay www.diasporandarlings.com a visit,
new articles have been posted and
we would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on them.

Later chickens

sometimes you have to return to check out if the window is clean ka....dont disregard peeps in the past! :)

I think people should be open sha, if you both are still single and the drama is not there anymore, why not?

@ Shamilicious & Myne I beg to differ. I used to think in a better time, place, changed attitudes etc might mean two people can disregard past drama's and get it on in the present.

Sometimes you have to accept that the window period you were given is over.

Pushing for that window to open again causes a new cycle of drama to contend with.

@Shami & @Myne: You two married romantics, lol, you're so cute. I'm not completely disregarding some peeps from the past but there are some individuals *ahem* that don't deserve a second chance, full-stop.

@Kooks: I co-sign all you have said comrade, some windows should be sealed shut...for good.
