In my previous Relationships posts #1 – 7,  I indicated that during my wanderings through the internet, I’d come across a lot of statements and quotes about relationships. So it time to share some more of my favourites:

  1. True happiness comes from within, not from someone else. Don’t make the mistake of waiting on someone or something to come along and make you happy.i-love-you
  2. Eventually, if you’re lucky in life, you find someone with the same chemical imbalance you have. ~Robert Brault
  3. Good company upon the road is the shortest cut. ~Author Unknown
  4. Never neglect the people who are most important to you simply because you think they will always be there. Because one morning you might wake up and realize you lost the moon while counting the stars.
  5. Characterize people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.
  6. Today, befriend a stranger, or if you feel up to more of a challenge, befriend a loved one. ~Robert Brault
  7. Sometimes you have to get to know someone really well to realize you’re really strangers. ~Mary Tyler Moore
  8. You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with. ~Wayne W. Dyer
  9. Once you find someone to share your ups and downs, downs are almost as good as ups. ~Robert Brault
  10. Instead of judging people by their past, stand by them and help repair their future.

My personal favourite is #4 as it’s a reminder that we should never takes our closest friends and family for granted. Instead we must tell them regularly how much they mean to us, otherwise they may never know just what they mean to you.

I hope you never take your closest relationships for granted as suddenly finding these people no longer in your life one day will cause you heartache and pain, so look after your relationships by telling those you love just how much they mean to you.
