1. Don’t choose the hard way just because you have to
We’re conditioned to believe that to achieve our dreams, we must go through hardships. Unless we go through a difficult struggle, we won’t achieve the ultimate prize. But that’s not always the case. Choose a path that you feel comfortable with, even if it’s the easier one.
2. There is no need to find a perfect life partner
We look for a partner who is just ‘perfect’ and we know, that’s just too much pressure. We don’t have these perfect expectations from friends, so why pressurize ourselves to find that perfection in a partner? We know we’re not perfect either!
3. Celebrate imperfection instead of looking for perfection
Even though we’re all looking for someone special, we rarely find them in the first try. More often than not, even if you find them, over time the “perfection” starts to get tainted. But the strongest relationships aren’t founded on perfection, they’re built over the acceptance of many imperfections, and that’s what makes them all the more beautiful!
4. Don’t be in a relationship if you are suffering
Don’t suffer if you’re not comfortable in the relationship just because you’re afraid to hurt your partner. If you’re suffering, the relationship will doom anyway.
5. Parents are people too. Never judge them too harshly for their mistakes
We expect our parents to act in a god-like perfect way. But if we manage to see beyond the relationship, they’re people too. They will sometimes make mistakes and once we realize that, it’s easier for us to understand and accept their actions.
