Relationships, what does this word mean and how can someone have a fulfilling life and embrace a relationship too? A relationship in itself can make a person feel centered or it can do quite the opposite and leave a person feeling off balanced. So what happens when you can't distinguish between the two?
Like relationships aren't difficult enough without adding in all the extra, but remember it takes time to build a relationship, and in building that relationship its important to ask yourself questions like: "What do I want"? "What do I need"? "What am I creating"?
A relationship can not be the primary source for ones happiness this must come from acknowledging your needs first.
It initially has to start with yourself, accepting this, will help better gauge each and every step that your relationship goes through. What is it that you as a individual want and need for yourself? Whether that be to accomplish things in life, understanding who you are as a person and taking that time to reflect through personal growth, these are things that only you as a person can truly answer.... to find this happiness in another will only lead to confusion and heartbreak, as I have been there.
With that said, that does not mean that drama, and conflict are not going to raise their ugly heads at times, but its in how two people can solve these situations that will be the determining factor in where it can go .... and this my friends is only the beginning.
Relationships take acceptance, trust and confidence, and these are the prime elements that are essential in the success of how a person builds respect within themselves. Its this make up that can enhance your relationships as you are not looking for that validation elsewhere. It starts with you!
