  • I'm gonna give you today

  • five reasons why you need to cut it off,

  • and move forward with your life

  • if there is someone right now

  • who is not sure about you.

  • Number One

  • You have to do

  • what he's not strong enough to do.

  • In his weak moments

  • where he's lonely and needy,

  • and wants to be connected to you...

  • He'll come back to you.

  • You'll have a great time together,

  • but in his strong moments

  • he'll be questioning again

  • whether this is the right relationship,

  • whether you're the right person.

  • So you'll be on a loop with this guy

  • where this pain will come back to revisit you

  • over and over again.

  • Every time you think you've got past it...

  • It'll come back.

  • You have to cut it off,

  • because there's a very good chance

  • he never will.

  • Number Two

  • There is someone out there waiting for you

  • who will be sure of you.

  • They won't think you're seventy percent

  • of what they want.

  • They'll be absolutely certain of you.

  • You are depriving yourself of that person

  • by hanging around with someone who's not sure about you,

  • and by the way,

  • you're also depriving that person

  • of you.

  • Number Three

  • Life is short enough

  • with the right person.

  • When you find that person that you're sure of

  • who's sure of you

  • you're already gonna feel like

  • there isn't enough time in the world to love each other.

  • So why would you spend a portion of that finite, precious time

  • with someone who's not even sure about you?

  • Number Four

  • Even when he's with you,

  • you're not getting his best.

  • How do I know that?

  • Because when a man isn't all in,

  • when he hasn't really decided that this is the person,

  • he's always holding back.

  • He's not giving as much of his emotional energy,

  • as much of his time,

  • he's not going out of his way

  • to do the gestures that he would do...

  • So you're getting scraps of him

  • even when you feel like it's good,

  • and my response to that is that is an insult to you.

  • It's an insult to your time.

  • It's an insult to how much you care about this person.

  • That you're going to a show every night,

  • and the cast isn't even showing up.

  • They're not doing their best performance.

  • Why would you be with someone who's not giving you their best performance?

  • And Number Five

  • Relationships are hard enough

  • even when it's the right person.

  • When two people find each other,

  • and they're certain of each other,

  • there's still gonna be issues,

  • and we're still gonna strive everyday

  • to do better,

  • to grow,

  • to give more,

  • but in a relationship

  • we should be giving more

  • to try to be our best,

  • not to try to be enough.

  • If you have to kill yourself

  • just to be enough for someone...

  • That is gonna destroy you over time.

  • You're gonna be exhausted.

  • We should be enough just by being us,

  • and everything else

  • is effort to be our best for our partner.

  • Don't strive to be enough.

  • Find someone you are enough for,

  • and then strive to be your best for that person.

  • Look, guys will say they're uncertain for a lot of reasons,

  • and they may be true,

  • they may be completely, logically correct.

  • Maybe he is working three jobs.

  • Maybe it is a tough time in his life.

  • Maybe there is something going on for him internally

  • that he can't deal with right now,

  • but I don't care about his reasons right now,

  • I care about your reality.

  • The one where you are entertaining

  • giving your time,

  • giving your energy,

  • giving your emotion

  • to someone who is not sure about you.

  • That's the reality,

  • and that's the thing that you have to focus on.

  • Life is too short to spend it

  • with someone who is not sure about you.

  • Set the bar higher than that.

  • I will see you next week.

I'm gonna give you today
