“The best relationships are the best not because they have always been the happiest, but because they have stayed strong through the storm.”
I’m not an expert on relationships but I’ve been in a few. I can only give you my experience and what I have seen through my eyes. Relationships are not meant to be perfect. Anything inhumanely perfect will succumb to boredom. Disagreements are expected. Differences don’t destroy relationships. It is how you deal with the differences that matter. You should be able to talk to your partner about your innermost feelings and thoughts in a positive manner. An imperfect couple learns to enjoy each others differences and work together to create something special.
A relationship is a mirror of the two people who are in it. You can’t have a healthy relationship with your partner if you don’t have a healthy relationship with yourself. Loving yourself should be a giving because no one can love you more than you love yourself. I find that a lot of people seek relationships because they want someone to love them. A relationship shouldn’t fill a void that you lack within. Only you can create that magic.
Often people bring trust issues from past relationships into a new relationship. I have to admit that I have trust issues from previous relationships. Being hurt by someone you trust is sometimes hard to let go of sometimes. Is it fair to your new partner? No, unless they give you a reason not to trust them. I always go into a new relationship cautious of my trust issues. I give them my trust until they give me a reason not to trust them. Love can cause you to be blind to the truth. Never lose sight of reality but also never let love make a fool out of you. You can only allow people to do what is done to you.
