    What I've learned about love and life

    Advertisements
    Every relationship has it's own pace and no one can say what that is.
    Love will take the plans you thought you had down and toss them out the window.
    Your SO should naturally make you want to be a better you.
    Every personality is different, therefore every relationship is different.
    It has a tendency to happen when you aren't expecting it.
    When it's right you know it's right.
    Love isn't always enough to make a relationship work.
    It's one thing to ask for advice, but no one can say what's right, because only YOU know YOUR relationship.

    I love all those! My biggest is that marriage or any relationship, should not be 50/50. Each party should be giving 100% all of the time.

    Stubbornness is both the cause for, and solution to, all of relationship problems. That, and wine.

    I saw an old friend and we were talking about DB and I and how I hadn't planned on having a relationship this year I wanted to just do my own thing, and well that went out the window. But she's known me since my first serious guy and we were talking about the differences and it got me thinking.

    For a relationship to be really healthy and successful, each party needs to be whole on their own. If one person needs to draw on the other for completion and fulfillment then the relationship will ultimately fail.

    Love those I bolded. Not feeling particularly philosophical right now but...

    Relationships take work...there's no way around that
    You know when a relationship isn't working out, you're just waiting to admit it to yourself
    No relationship is great all the time but if the bad starts to outweigh the good, it's time to move on.

    True, Db and I have only had one knock down drag out fight and I consider that a huge accomplishment on my part. I also think that arguing is going to happen, but it doesn't always have to be negative, it can be used has a gate way to communicate.

    I agree so much with all of yours. My ex was a prime example of the last three. Sometimes you just know and you have to be able to do what's best for all involved.
