I made it up; I made him Mr. Perfect. I was lucky to have people tell me bits and pieces of this speech over time. I was lucky to get away and to have him stay away long enough for me to get over him and to move on to someone infinitely better who showed me just how far from perfect he was. I'm very lucky that I can now give this advice to others and relate to every. single. word. Thanks to those who helped me get to this place. Thanks so much.
waiting for something good is just a way to say waiting on someone to get first place so you can easily get second, when all you had to do was to get after what you wanted and maybe sweat a little, maybe bleed a little, and maybe lose a lot of sleep, and end up first. because second place just IS not, and never will be, good enough for a truely dedicated individual.
