Talking about relationships, a friend of mine suggested that (some relationships) can be compared to a light bulb, helium light to be specific. Because helium lights take a very long time to turn on but the end result is intense, bright light. So, in the words of my friend “Sometimes you just have to wait for the light to get heated and the light will come on its own.”
That reminded me of another blog post I had read somewhere about Hope and Delusion. For one to wait – maybe even a whole lifetime without any results – is that having hope or being deluded? Hopelesness is not a characteristic of a believer, as we’re urged to remain patient and to never let go of hope. But on the other hand, waiting a lifetime for a relationship to bloom, when it may not even bud.. may or may not be delusion but is a waste of life.
How do you know though, whether to wait or move on? How do you really separate hope from delusion?
