Hate to sound cliché, but there’s something about getting out of the shower & hearing football from the living room that makes me smile.

Things I’ve learned (the hard way) about having a healthy relationship

Things I’ve learned (the hard way) about having a healthy relationship:
1. You have to love yourself before you can love anyone else.
2. If you want someone to respect you, you have to respect yourself.
3. You attract what you project. If youre the drunk town hooch, you’re going to attract all the WRONG people.
4. There HAS to be trust. If you don’t trust who you’re with you’ll never be happy.
5. Communication is key. Be open and honest about your feelings, opinions & ideas. No lies.
6. Swallow your pride. Admit when you’re wrong or you messed up or were being unreasonable. Apologize.
7. Never take your partner for granted. They don’t have to be with you. Appreciate them and all their gestures, small&large. Show grattitude, say thank you.
8. Compromise. Be mindful to your partners likes and dislikes. Find activities you both can enjoy together. Or your thing one day and theirs the next.
9. Space. You can’t be shoved up each others asses 24/7. Let them do their thing while you do yours. But send them that cute “I miss you text” or a quick catch up call throughout the day to reconnect.
10. Accept them. Good bad & indifferent. Its ok to want to help them better themselves but you have to love somebody for them, not the idea of them or what you want to change then into.

*It’s ok to have a person be a source of your happiness, but they can’t be your ONLY source or it will never work out. You’ll both end up miserable. You have to have happiness aside from each other to truly be happy together. *

Is life just spent “healing”, do ever actually just move on?
