Before you judge me, make…
so true, :::: ^^ ::::
Find a Special Spot. Whether it’s a favorite park, or just somewhere quiet, find a place that appeals to both of you and return to it often.
Don’t Forget To Take Care Of Yourself. It’s only natural, you feel comfortable with each other and the grooming starts to slip a bit. Make some time to keep yourselves looking fabulous!
Have Your Own Friends. Instead of becoming too couple-centric and dependent on each other, have your own night out with your friends. A little absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Share More. Set up a time every night to talk about each other’s day – no interrupting, and minimal complaining! You’ll feel more connected with each other.
Change Up Your Routine. Always have a date night on Fridays? Surprise your partner with a special date mid-week or change up your normal routine.
Get Closer. Physical distance breeds emotional distance. Even if it’s just cuddling on the couch or a quick hug, a little physical contact goes a long way.
Hold Hands. Out on the town? Try holding hands for a change. This is something couples tend to do less and less the longer they are together.
Making blind judgments. – Don’t always judge a person by what they show you. What you’ve seen is oftentimes only what that person has chosen to show you, or what they were driven to show based on their inner stress and pain. Too often we jump to conclusions, only to cause ourselves and others unnecessary worry, hurt, and anger. So exercise restraint, be kind, and save the jumping for joy.
Expecting people to be perfect. – When you open up to love, you must be open up to getting hurt as well. If you expect to love someone, and not have disappointment every now and then, then you don’t want love, you want something perfect that doesn’t exist. When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can start appreciating them for who they truly are.
Focusing on everything and everyone except YOU. – Make the world a better place one person at a time, and start with YOU. If you’re looking out into the world to find where your purpose resides, stop, and look inside instead. Look at who you already are, the lifestyle you choose to live, and what makes you come alive. Then nurture these things and let them grow until your current life can no longer contain them. And finally, as you’re being forced to grow, follow them into the world with courage, trusting that where they will take you will be where your purpose finds its home.
Holding on to the wrong things for too long. – To let go isn’t to forget. Letting go involves cherishing the memories, overcoming the obstacles, and moving on. To let go is to be thankful for the experiences that made you laugh, made you cry, and helped you learn and grow. It’s the acceptance of everything you have, everything you once had, and the possibilities that lie ahead. It’s all about finding the strength to embrace life’s changes and continue taking positive steps forward.
Denying your mistakes. – Mistakes are almost always forgivable if you have the courage to admit them. You have to be courageous and wise enough to know that if what you are doing isn’t producing the desired results, you must take different actions. Sometimes falling flat on your face is exactly what’s needed to help you see things from a totally different perspective, and get back on track.
Avoiding your fears. – Go to your fears, sit with them, and stare at them. Your fears are your friend; their only job is to show you undeveloped parts of yourself that you need to cultivate to live a happy life. The more you do the things you’re most afraid of doing, the more life opens up. Embrace your fears and your fears will embrace you.
Accepting less than you know you deserve. – Do not sacrifice your heart or your dignity. Love yourself enough to never lower your standards for the wrong reasons. Do not get so anxious for something that you’ll accept anything. Hold to your standards and be willing to walk away, with your head held high.
