Change We Need Pt. 1

By on January 12, 2009 @ 12:00 am

Throughout my experiences with dating, I have encountered people who aren’t accustomed to being supportive, trustworthy or respectful. There were times where I fell short of giving my all for whatever reason, and things didn’t work out the way I would have wanted them to. The trial and error that is experienced when seeking a meaningful relationship is meant to shape and mold us into better people. Too often, we repeat the same mistakes or become immune to the issues that hurt us in these relationships. If you are an unhappy person seeking happiness in someone who doesn’t respect or honor you, you’re wasting your time. If you can’t trust or grow with another, make a positive change alone. If nobody else has your best interest at heart, you should. The first step towards being happy with another is being happy alone. Learn to love yourself first, learn the difference between lust and love, and then you would be able to learn to love another the way you yearn to be loved.

Oh, so true. I think a lot of people don’t realize you have to go it alone before you can go at it with someone else. Often, looking for the building up of self-esteem, self-worth and all that other stuff with someone rather than learning to do it on their own. It is most interesting that they don’t realize the worst you could do to yourself is allowing your happiness to be based on someone else’s demeanor.
