Do you have something that guides you through your relationship? If not, why? I love, love, love getting relationship advice from ANYONE that is in/has been in one. I also get my advice from personal experiences, Dr. Phil (yes, him), Mom, Grandma, friends, the internet… But I also choose the best advice for what fits for my relationship.
So I’ve try to keep all of the advice that I’ve filtered in a special email called “Relationship Things to Remember”. And every so often, I take a look at them to make sure I am still building on things so that me and my boyfriend can have a long-lasting, always improving, happy relationship.
Don’t get me wrong, we argue, we’re not always going to agree as most couples, or people in general. But the difference is, we know how to handle those arguements, we leave nothing to have to further be worked out, we WORK ON it. We have 10x’s more better great days, than bad ones.
Lesson: Relationships are work. And if you want to be with someone till death do you part, its worth the work. Share relationship advice that you’ve learned with your partner. See if she/he agrees or disagrees, then you both can reach a common ground for what works for your relationship.
