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. Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.i-love-you
  2. 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.
  3. When the pain of holding on is worse than the pain of letting go, it is time to let go.
  4. Do not become possessive. The purpose of a relationship is to complement each other, grow together, and achieve your common goals as a couple. At the same time, you must each maintain your individual identity as a human being.
  5. What we find in a soulmate is not something wild to tame but something wild to run with. ~ Robert Brault
  6. Good relationships are not just about the good times you share; they’re also about the obstacles you go through together, and the fact that you still say “I love you” in the end.
  7. Happiness is having a dream you cannot let go of and a partner who would never ask you to. ~Robert Brault
  8. Tell the truth, or eventually someone will tell it for you
  9. Lies help no one in the long run. So… 1) Don’t say “I love you” if you don’t mean it. 2) Don’t say “I understand” if you have no clue. 3) Don’t say “I’m sorry” if you’re not. 4) Be honest with yourself and your loved ones
  10. In human relationships, distance is not measured in miles but in affection. Two people can be right next to each other, yet miles apart. So stay in touch with those who truly matter to you. Not because it’s convenient, but because they’re worth the extra effort.

My personal favourite is #6 as the friendships which are able to achieve #6 are the best relationships, and are definitely the ones that will last.

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.
