No buts about it

Watch out when you hear this word:

BUT

It tends to erase the first half of sentences.

The first half are the words you want to hear, but the second half is what's actually going to happen.
If you're hearing too many sentences split by "buts" like these, you may be living on false hope that what really is, is better than what actually is, or will be.

Some examples:
I really like you, BUT I don't want a relationship.
Iwould love to help, BUT I've already got other plans.
You're really talented, BUTwe're not hiring right now.
I'd love to spend time with you, BUT I'm too busy.

Don't live a life waiting on "buts." Find people who make room for you, not just make you wait around. No "buts"about it.
