I have a friend who I’ve known for a year. We are not dating but we have discussed the possibility of being in a relationship. I am not sure that we will work out due to our different beliefs. Most times we don’t agree much on anything. Recently he asked me if we could be in relationship. While I care for him I don’t think he’s the guy for me, I don’t want to hurt his feelings so how should I go about letting him know that I’m not interested in being in a relationship with him?
Dear Woman of Power:
I addressed you as a woman of power, because that’s who you are. Therefore, remain as such via standing in truth. First and foremost, true to you! Too often, we as women compromise and get into a relationship when we know deep down within that he is not the one. As a result, we become a fixer, which should never be the case. Relationships are not always agreeable; however, they should be respectful to one another, which allow them to disagree agreeably. I respect the fact that you don’t want to hurt his feelings, but it is either now or later. The longer you wait the more hurt he will be, if at all? You will never know until you exude your power and stand in your truth. People come into your life for a reason, season or lifetime. It is each person’s responsibility to know which one. Therefore, I admonish you to assess any kind of relationship accordingly. Once you do then maximize the opportunity to the fullest with much appreciation for what that person was assigned to contribute to your life. In general, life and relationships have meaning, and it’s time to know what it entails to have a person in your life without crossing boundaries trying make it something that it was never intended to be.
