Love is not a feeling, it’s a decision. A good food, good sex, good looks are not enough qualities to seal or sustain a relationship. It’s essential to learn to differentiate between a smooth talker and a good companion. Internal qualities are very important in sustaining a relationship; understanding, trust, respect, maturity in words and actions and of cause honesty. In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can because things do not happen, things are made to happen.
You decide to make your relationship work, leaving it to chance is like driving a car with your hands off the steering. Relationships do not become successful because both parties are perfect. It’s what you put into it that nurtures it. You invest time to know each other more, you build trust from the time invested, and upon this trust love flourishes. To sustain love you need understanding, understanding your strength makes it easier to tolerate your weaknesses.
Many of us will learn from our mistakes if we were not so busy denying them. When life gives you lemon, don’t sit moaning and complaining how others got oranges and grapes. Learn to make the best of every situation. Squeeze your lemons, make a lemonade out of them and enjoy a good drink. Be impeccable with your word. Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love. And watch that relationship blossom.
