It’s hard to resist a bad boy who’s a good man.

Happy Ever After (Nora Roberts)

Don’t neglect your close relationships. If I’ve learned anything about relationships, it’s to hang in, even when it’s inconvenient. Stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Loved ones are part of the glue that holds life and faith together.

Pay attention to the little things, because when you really miss someone you miss the little things the most. Go for long walks. Have dates often. Indulge in great conversations. Count your mutual blessings. Make each other smile. Just let go of the silly drama and conflicts that take over a relationship and just be together.

Sometimes you have to walk away from people, not because you don’t care, but because they don’t. When someone hurts you time and time again, accept the fact that they don’t care about you and let them go. It’s a tough pill to swallow, but it’s necessary medicine.

You can’t build a good reputation or a successful way of life based on what you could do or might do someday. The quality of your life is in direct proportion to your commitment to get things done, regardless of your chosen path. Don’t sit there and say, “Somebody should really do something about that someday.” Be that somebody, and make today the day.

No partner can make you happy if you are not happy with yourself. Do not confuse looking for love with looking for happiness. Find happiness first, then find someone worth sharing it with.

Accepth the truth.

Sometimes we just have to come to terms with the fact that we are not what someone wants, no matter what you do, how much you try, how much you go out of your way for that person, call them, tell them you love them, be there for them, do things for them, sometimes it’s just not enough. You can’t…

If you feel like others are not treating you with love and respect, check your price tag. Perhaps you subconsciously marked yourself down. Because it’s you who tells others what you’re worth by showing them what you are willing to accept for your time and attention. So get off the clearance rack. If you don’t value and respect yourself, wholeheartedly, no one else will either.
