successful relationships quotes

To tell you my darkest secret is the best thing I’ve ever done. It just took us further than expected.

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. 
I don’t believe in investing in hate or revenge. That shit is negative, and I don’t need that kind of energy. I value myself enough to know that simply dropping out of the lives of people who have done me wrong is enough.

I am not entirely sure what I want anymore and that in itself is so entirely confusing.

There’s more than enough food, water, and land for all of us to be free, but “money is used to impose artificial scarcity, create division, and force people into the lives of servitude imposed by the ruling class- gavin nascimento

“We were all humans until race disconnected us, religion separated us, politics divided us and wealth classified us.”- P.Hurbungs

Money is a manmade concept. No other living being on earth pays to live here. Yet, this manmade tool has seemed to have caused many to lose sight of what’s really important in life. Money has created an illusory definition of "wealth”. For many, when thinking of wealth - money and material riches come into mind-. Now, there is nothing wrong with material riches as long as they don’t consume one’s values. we shouldn’t have hate or envy towards material riches, because that does us no good either. It is a normal part of the human experience to want and enjoy them. And for some, it’s a passion that brings them happiness and joy thus we should respect that.But the point i’m trying to make here is…what is true wealth & success? It’s peace. It’s contentment. It’s being comfortable with existence… living with no friction. It’s sleeping with a clean & light heart. Our purpose in life isn’t to be another brick in the wall & go through the system or to have our goals set to make money or pay bills. If that’s all you think you came here to do, it’s not. Besides these earthly demands imposed by humanity, we’re here
To grow, outgrow, let go, help, love, judge less, cultivate patience & empathy, share, laugh, make a difference, ease suffering, and to help ourselves & each other heal. Life is much more meaningful & larger than what we have been fed by mainstream society. Don’t be afraid to step out of it all.. to take a breather & remember what your soul already knows. 📝written with love, vin. @wishing.u.well_1111
