 ⤷ day 12: favorite relationship- norma & dylan

“I’m sorry Dylan, I’m so sorry. For everything, for how you were born, how I handled it. How I shut you out. It was horrible of me and I’m so sorry. I didn’t know what I was doing, but as horrible as it was, I wouldn’t trade it for anything because you are here now and you are beautiful. And you’re a miracle that someone like you could come out of that. And I wouldn’t give you up for anything.”

Weirdness is why we adore our friends…weirdness is what binds us to our colleagues. Weirdness is what sets us apart, gets us hired. Be your unapologetically weird self. In fact, bring weird may even find you the ultimate happiness.

about once a week i get a message or two asking where i get the “quotes” paired with my artwork from bcs people don’t seem to understand off the bat that i write nearly everything i post, whether it’s on my art or not. is that common?? is visual art and writing so divorced typically?

While you’re out there flirting with all those other girls, she’s sitting at home cluelessly bragging to her best friend about how amazing you are. Don’t mess this one up again, don’t take advantage of her kindness. Don’t end up being like the rest of the guys in her past. Because I promise that she will move on and get over you. And when she does find someone who respects her, you’ll have no one else to blame but yourself.

What's the key to successful relationships?
  • Without quality time, your relationship will not survive.
  • You will both need security, comfort. A good relationship is built on compromise and a great deal of give and take on both sides.
  • Keep your dependence and independence in balance. Tell and show your partner how much you need them, but don’t cling, as that can make your partner feel trapped.
  • Encourage them to listen to you, by showing appreciation when they do. By the same token, show interest when they talks to you.
  • Make them appreciate you. Don’t wait for a spontaneous compliment, but say something good about yourself and ask for their agreement.
  • Learn to do the one thing that is most likely to restore good feeling in your relationship - giving your partner a genuine, loving and approving smile.
  • Often those subtle quirks that first attracted you to your partner can, with time, turn around and become toe-curlingly annoying habits. Learn to love them, warts and all.
  • Hidden resentments poison a relationship; so if something bothers you, say it. 
  • Learn that punishing your partner won’t work. It may make you feel better to give them a hard time, but it will actually make them dig their heels in more. A better tactic is to reward the things you like and ignore what you don’t like.
