I came across this last night and thought: ‘So many points hit home!’
Admittedly, my mind has been around and on the topic of love and relationships a lot more lately. But since I’m currently mentally too tired to structure and spill my thoughts out here, I’ve instead copied pasted points from the piece I found most compelling and those that reached out to me deepest.
You can gauge a person’s love for you by how they treat you when they are upset with you.
Always fight the problem, not the other person. If you keep this in mind when arguing, you’ll be able to actually resolve the issue than be mad at each other.
Don’t look for a girl you want to treat like a princess, look for a girl you want to treat like a partner.
Stop trying to find the right person and start trying to BE the right person.
It’s better to be happy than to be right.
Always be the first to genuinely apologize after a fight.
Just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.
Don’t fall in love with someone’s potential.
Out of all the things needed for a successful relationship, love barely makes the top 5. Honesty, loyalty, trust, and communication all have to be there.
Be the man or woman you would want your future or current child dating.
Keep no secrets, tell no lies.
Sometimes you gotta wise up and let go. Yes, it hurts. But it’ll hurt more in the future.
Relationships aren’t hard. If it is hard, you are probably with the wrong person.
If you’re keeping score you already lost.
The best sign of a healthy relationship is no sign of it on Facebook.
