7. Relationships are difficult

8. Have faith in your relationships

  • Christopher Pike: “Relationships are mysterious. We doubt the positive qualities in others, seldom the negative. You will say to your partner: do you really love me? Are you sure you love me? You will ask this a dozen times and drive the person nuts. But you never ask: are you really mad at me? Are you sure you’re angry? When someone is angry, you don’t doubt it for a moment. Yet the reverse should be true. We should doubt the negative in life, and have faith in the positive.”

9. Accept each other’s flaws

  • Lisa Kleypas: “I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.”

10. Forgive and forget

  • Brian Weiss: “Forgive the past. It is over. Learn from it and let go. People are constantly changing and growing. Do not cling to a limited, disconnected, negative image of a person in the past. See that person now. Your relationship is always alive and changing.”

11. Show love

  • Jenny Han: “that’s when I finally got it. I finally understood. It wasn’t the thought that counted. It was the actual execution that mattered, the showing up for somebody. The intent behind it wasn’t enough. Not for me. Not anymore. It wasn’t enough to know that deep down, he loved me. You had to actually say it to somebody, show them you cared. And he just didn’t. Not enough.”

12. Betrayal is the end of the trust

  • Suzanne Collins: “For there to be betrayal, there would have to have been a trust first.”

13. Relationships hurt

  • David Richo: “Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.”

14. Good relationships last

  • Gillian Anderson: “Well, it seems to me that the best relationships – the ones that last – are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship. You know, one day you look at the person and you see something more than you did the night before. Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is… suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.”

15. Never cheat or lie

  • Patti Callahan Henry: “Cheating and lying aren’t struggles, they’re reasons to break up.”

16. Communication is important

  • Catherine Gilbert Murdock: “When you don’t talk, there’s a lot of stuff that ends up not getting said.”

17. Always be clear

  • Susane Colasanti: “If a girl starts out all casual with a guy and she doesn’t tell him that she wants a relationship, it will never become a relationship. If you give the guy the impression that casual is okay with you, that’s all he’ll ever want. Be straight with him from the start. If he gets scared and runs away, he wasn’t right for you.”

18. A good relationship is a home

  • Stephanie Perkins: “For the two of us, home isn’t a place. It is a person. And we are finally home.”

19. Mind yourself

  • Steve Maraboli: “How would your life be different if you walked away from gossip and verbal defamation? Let today be the day…You speak only the good you know of other people and encourage others to do the same.”

20. Heartbreaks are inevitable

  • Mandy Hale:” Sometimes it takes a heartbreak to shake us awake and help us see we are worth so much more than we’re settling for.”
