Too many times people are looking for love in the wrong places. As always, get grounded and know your values and worth. You cannot be scared to get into relationships or to love. Realizing that love is not anything like the childhood fairy tales. In a relationship you should be able to accept the good, the bad, and the ugly. And many times, it is simply about how much you are willing to put up with. Knowing not to be selfish and to compromise. Knowing when to step back, maybe try taking a look at how the other perceives something, and trying to be understanding.We are all human beings with different feelings and opinions and morals. It is important to explore these things when getting to know someone before even getting into a physical relationship. Too many times we go too far only to realize you really did not know the individual you got involved with and you don’t like the kind of person they are. It’s more than looks and sex or money. Looks fade with age and after sex you still have to function through your day to day lives. And money sure don’t solve all the problems. Take the time to actually get to know someone and see if you really vibe with one another. As cheesy as it sounds it is a fact that it is about what kind of person they are on the inside. Will they respect you, will they also give and not only take, will they compromise. It is all apart of growing and you cannot be afraid of the pains that come with it. It’s about growing together and being a team and that comes with some bumps and bruises.
