In Relationships #1, I indicated that during my wandering through the internet, I’d come across a lot of statements and quotes about relationships. So today I’d like to share some more of ones I particularly liked:

  1. Don’t wait for the right person to come into your life.  Rather, be the right person to come to someone’s life.i-love-you
  2. Just because one person doesn’t seem to care for you, doesn’t mean you should forget about everyone else who does.
  3. It is okay to be angry.  It is never okay to be cruel.
  4. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring – all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
  5. Choose your relationships wisely.  It’s better to be alone than to be in bad company.
  6. Silence is often the loudest cry.  Pay attention to those you care about.
  7. We don’t always need advice.  Sometimes all we need is a hand to hold, an ear to listen, and a heart to understand.
  8. Good relationships don’t just happen; they take time, patience and two people who truly want to work to be together.
  9. When it comes to relationships, remaining faithful is never an option but a priority.  Loyalty is everything.
  10. Don’t look for someone who will solve all your problems; look for someone who will face them with you.

My personal favourite is #4, as from experience, I know just how valuable a simple smile, kind word, listening ear, or small act of kindness can mean, when you are at your lowest point. So never under-estimate the power you have to make a huge difference in someone’s life.
