“Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: they’re trying to find someone who’s going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take.” – anthony robbins

dear future husband:
i recently read this quote from comedian Mindy Kaling, “I don’t want to hear about the endless struggles to keep sex exciting, or the work it takes to plan a date night. I want to hear that you guys watch every episode of The Bachelorette together in secret shame, or that one got the other hooked on Breaking Bad and if either watches it without the other, they’re dead meat. I want to see you guys high-five each other like teammates on a recreational softball team you both do for fun. I want to hear about it because I know it’s possible, and because I want it for myself.”
it made me think about how sometimes in relationships, we dwell on the bad things. you chomp your gum. i zone out whenever you talk about sports, etc. perhaps, instead of thinking of all these bad things, we focus on the good things: i gave excellent back rubs, and you make me see the type of person i want to be.
you in? you willing to focus on those positives with me?
yeah, i took a quiz to see what love language i have. [not like i couldn’t already guess] but i was bored.
here’s my breakdown:
words of affirmation
acts of service
i also took a quiz about how i like to be apologized to, or something:
you can read more about these and even take the quiz here. it’s kinda fun.
now you know a little bit more about me. you’re welcome.
