What Makes Great Relationships and Marriages Work

7) Compromise and choose your battles wisely.

  • Some things you are going to argue and fight about, that is inevitable. On the other hand, arguing and fighting about everything is unhealthy. “We were going out to dinner one night and we simply could not decide on a restaurant. That was until one of us finally had a great idea, ‘I will choose which restaurant we go to tonight, next dinner night you can choose.'” Both people won that night because they skipped an argument, and in love, put the other first.

8) Choose someone you know is right for you and be content with him/her. Love, love, love the one you are with.

  • Both men and women are guilty of sometimes wishing their partners were like their best friend’s wife or husband. Well, guess what? Your best friend’s wife is his and your wife is yours. Chances are you probably could not spend a day with your best friend’s wife if you had to. “I used to wish my husband was as much of a handy man as some other man I know. I learned the hard way not compare my man to others when I found other things I did not like about those other men I had esteemed mightily. I also learned to love my husband for the things he is good at, the things that make him who is, the things that are the reasons I fell in love with him in the first place.” It makes no sense to be with someone and wish he or she was like someone else. Love the one you are with and accept him or her for who she or he is.

I am a 26 year-old educator on the run of becoming all that I can in the time that I have. A few years ago, I embarked on a journey filled with spiritual discoveries, healthy habits, and a passion for education stronger than I've ever had. Learning what to do to become a better person have always interest me. One of my passions is to know a little about everything in order to gain the capability of forming my own opinion so others won't have to do it for me. Another passion that was buried deep inside finally came to the surface and allowed me to see the adventurous side of me. I am on a journey to see the world and do things outside of my comfort zone. I will write all about it along the way!
