This Is Why We’re Attracted To People Who Are Wrong For Us
I think for just about all of us, at some point in our lives we end up attracting the wrong person for us. I'll be honest with you, if you found yourself recently dating someone who just wasn't for you, it could simply be a fluke.
When in the early stages of seeing someone, we tend to hide our true selves. As we become more comfortable, we let them out. But what does it mean when one partner after another partner is just the wrong person for us? Why are we attracting the wrong people?
Because we often use the wrong version of ourselves to do the attracting.
At any given moment, there are a few different versions of myself trying to bubble to the surface. There's the perfect superman me. He's smart, funny, has a good job, feels no pain, and is so perfect. There's the damaged, depressed version of me. He's been hurt so many times by so many people and just can't get over it. But the version of me who usually bubbles to the surface is a mix of the two. Hurt before, still pretty cool, a little sad sometimes, but mostly awesome. He's my higher self.
