Stay in Your Lane or Get Off the Track!

I wanted to write about this topic because there are a lot of people out there who like to dish it out but can’t take it. If you’re in a “situation” and both parties “know” about the situation and “agree” to the “situation” then there shouldn’t be any issues with the “situation”, right? Wrong.

I am always amazed when people say they can handle a casual situation because they know their role and play their position and they know how to stay in their lane. However, as soon as they find out that their mate has been playing the same game on a different track with a different drive it’s an issue.

If you both agreed that you all are not in a relationship, but have a situation there are unspoken rules, such as when I’m with you I am only with you, but when we’re not together I will do as I please. There is always one person in the “situation” who is cool with this arrangement when it applies to them but as soon as they find out that their partner is doing it, it becomes an issue.

So here’s my advice. If you can’t handle the consequences of the “situation” then don’t put yourself in the “situation”. If you do decide to put yourself in this “situation” make sure you stay in your lane and don’t ask questions that you are not ready to hear the answers to. Basically stay in your lane or get off the track. You knew what the rules were when you entered into this agreement so don’t acted so shocked when you find out that someone else is driving your car on a different track!

I’m just saying.
