“Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: they’re trying to find someone who’s going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take.”
Learning is a part of life, we learn from others and from our experiences. Living a rewarding life involves the simple art of balance or what we’ve learned from those around us and what our experiences have taught us. Here are four things in life you can’t learn from someone else
Love – Dating sites seem to have made dating more complicated than ever. When you have a cornucopia of dating sites to choose from finding love nowadays is almost like going to a fast food restaurant. There is no official guide for falling in love, out of love or dealing with the emotional roller coaster that can sometimes come with it. Someone can’t teach you love cannot be taught and it cannot be forced. Love is a powerful sentiment, one we will all find under different circumstances and must each figure out for ourselves.
Responsibility– Responsibility is not an instinctually quality everyone posses. Some of us have to work hard in acquiring this quality. The full burden of responsibility is becoming independent in all aspect of your life, family, career, love life. Cause and effect are the ultimate guides to responsibility and this responsibility will eventually lead to complete independence. Gaining responsibility and independence will help you make more sound decisions in life, love and business.
Betrayal – The topic no one ever wants to discuss, it the thing that turns your world upside down and usually sends you on an emotional rollercoaster. There really is no way of preparing for it because every act of betrayal contains different variables. But when it happens, the first questions that come to mind are: Why? How? Can we work through this? The only persons who can answer any of these questions are the person or persons involved.
Happiness – Happiness is doing what you love, and success is excelling at doing what you love. Nobody else can tell you how to be happy, what or how to love. As you progress through life, these mysteries are uncovered to you and you will find them on our own. Figuring out what makes you happy is the catalyst to achieving your own version of success.
