Timing is something that none of us can seem to get quite right with relationships.
We meet the person of our dreams the month before they leave to study abroad.
We form an incredibly close friendship with an attractive person who is already taken.
One relationship ends because our partner isn't ready to get serious and another ends because they're getting serious too soon.
Here's a simple truth I think we all need to face up to:
The people we meet at the wrong time are actually just the wrong people.
You never meet the right people at the wrong time because the right people are timeless.
The right people make you want to throw away the plans you originally had and follow them into the hazy, unknown future without a glance backwards.
You know that any adventure you had originally planned out for your future isn't going to be half as incredible as the adventures you could have by their side.
That no matter what you thought you wanted before, this is better.
Everything is better since they came along.
When you are with the right person, time falls away.
You don't worry about fitting them into your complicated schedule, because they become a part of that schedule.
They become the backbone of it.
Your happiness becomes your priority and so long as they are contributing to it you can work around the rest.
The right people don't impose limits on your time or your dreams or your abilities.
They want to tackle those mountains with you, and they don't care how much time it takes.
With the right person, you have all of the time in the world.
The truth is, when we pass someone up because the timing is wrong, what we are really saying is that we don't care to spend our time on that person.
There will never be a magical time when everything falls into place and fixes all our broken relationships.
But there may someday be a person who makes the issue of timing irrelevant.
Because when someone is right for us, we make the time to let them into our lives.
And that kind of timing is always right.
