3 Simple Things You Can Do To Improve Any Relationship or Make It Even Stronger

It doesn’t always take a lot to make a relationship better, but it does take intent.

Do you think there’s a formula for success when it comes to maintaining a great relationship? Are there certain things that you can do that will just keep the right energy flowing and help your relationship continually flourish and get stronger and stronger?

When I used to try to figure out why some of my relationships went wrong — of course, it was easy for me to reach the conclusion that “he just wasn’t the one”. I would think through what went wrong, what I could’ve done better, what he should’ve done better and arrive at the conclusion that some things are just not meant to be.

Looking back now on my past relationships, I can definitely say that is absolutely true. All relationships aren’t meant to work out.

Sometimes It’s Just About Learning The Lesson

There are those relationships where we are simply meant to learn about ourselves, smooth out any of our rough edges, help the other person smooth out their rough edges and of course move on stronger having learned all the lessons we were supposed to. [Read more…]

How You Can Forgive Anyone Today (Even the Worst Person In the Entire World That Doesn’t Deserve It)

“Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.” – Paul Boese

Recently, I came across a poll and 74% of the people polled said there was someone they still needed to forgive. Now it may seem that 74% is a high percentage of people, but honestly, I get it. Forgiving people is not always easy. I know I have had my own hangups with forgiveness and it’s definitely a situation of easier said than done.

People can really do some awful things and make it amazingly hard for you to even think about forgiving them. Especially those people that have somehow convinced themselves they have done nothing wrong. Isn’t it just the craziest thing that someone can do something they know deep down is wrong, but find a way to justify their actions enough that they aren’t even really apologetic?

Forgiving people can be challenging enough when people sincerely apologize, but it adds an entire new layer to the situation when you realize you aren’t going to even get an apology. But, as I am sure you already know, there really are so many reasons why we want to forgive anyone and everyone as soon as is absolutely possible.

One Simple Way You Can Never Allow Anyone to “Push Your Buttons” Again

“How you treat me is Your Karma. How I react is Mine.”

This is honestly one piece of wisdom I lived far too many years without. I can look back now and laugh, but I really could have saved myself a lot of needless drama and frustration if I had always understood and applied this wisdom to my life.

It really is so true that we have to be aware how we are reacting when people push our buttons and aim to always respond in the best way possible.

Let’s be real, there are always going to be those people that have the ability to push our buttons. People will do and say things that are totally inappropriate.  They will do things they never should have that can’t be justified — no matter how you look at them. [Read more…]

Why You Need to Stop, Take A Break, And Reach Out

 “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Maya Angelou

Do other people really like you? Do they say you are a good person? Do you enjoy getting to know new people? Do you invest a significant amount of your time in building real, genuine and lasting friendships? Do you speak and smile at strangers?

Why do I ask?

Because as I am sure you already know, meeting new people and building real friendships are some of the most important things we can do. It’s something I have really been focusing on lately and have been loving every minute of it.

Now, don’t worry, I am not going to start singing “That’s What Friends are For” or suggest you go buy a bunch of friendship bracelets to send out. [Read more…]
