I was thinking earlier today about relationships, and the short story is that I once again came to the conclusion that it’s not a good idea for me to be in one. Don’t get me wrong, one of my favorite things in life is the “infatuation” phase you have when you first meet someone you really like, but my life these days needs to be guided by the philosophy “Yoga First, Everything Else After That.” Without being too melodramatic, this attitude is necessary for the continuation of this life.
Getting to the title of this post and thinking about avoiding relationships, I thought of these lyrics from a song called Brandy, by a band named Looking Glass:
But he made it clear he couldn’t stay
The harbor was his home
So in a nutshell that’s how I feel, I can’t stay/be in a relationship right now, other things need to be first. Specifically yoga needs to be the most important thing in my life right now; I know that, and accept it. Sure, I get lonely from time to time, but this is the way it has to be right now.
So Brandy, you’re a fine girl, what a good wife you would be, but my life, my lover, my lady is ... (insert unknown rhyme here).
