Relationship Truisms


  • you cannot make someone love you, you can however be someone who can be loved. The choice is then theirs.
  • no matter how much you may want a relationship with someone, that someone just may not want a relationship with you.
  • it can  take years of invested time to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.
  • it's not what you have in your life, but who you have in your life that matters.
  • be aware that one wrong decision takes a split second to make, which will give you a life of heartache.
  • no matter how thin you slice it, there are always two sides to every relationship.
  • you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be your last word..
  • you are responsible for your own actions, no matter what causes them.
  • there are people who love deeply, they just don't know how to show it...be patient, if you teach them lovingly, they will learn in turn.
  • true friendship can continue to grow, through absence and distance as can a true love...where there is a will, there is most definitely a way.
  • just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you  the way they want to.
  • no matter how good a partner is, they will falter you at some point and that is when you must learn to forgive through your love.
  • the world does not stop and wait for the sufferings of a broken heart, and neither should you.
  • just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other, on the other hand,  just because they don't argue,  doesn't mean they do.
  • we don't have to change our  partner as long as we can understand that our partner does change.
  • beware of negative thinking...as it can become a devils advocate in your relationship.
  • how you understand who you are will help you to understand who your partner is.
  • although the word "love" is ever so endearing, it can lose it`s value when said without thought or meaning..
  • love is not for one to keep, it is however,  to be to passed on, to stay alive.
  • just because you are having a bad day...does not mean that your partner has to have one also.
  • pretending to be someone you are not can be very tiring, why not save your energy for those who accept you for who you are.
  • is it that, you never know what you have until you loose it  or is it that,  you know what you have and just never think your going to loose it...?
  • you can not go wrong with a smile or a hug, just as a simple, how are you...invites friendship.

I so love each and everyone of those quotes...i can't even choose which is the best.

love is such a powerful emotion that sometimes I can't put them into words. But it also have different intensity at one time and another. Likewise it has somewhat different feeling and depth for different recipients (your better half, your parent, your child or your friend)

thanks for dropping by...and for commenting. missed you dear!

If you’ve done something to break the trust in your relationship, take accountability for your actions, apologize from your heart and do what ever you need to do to repair it

I have to say there have been many a time where it's a quote that either gets me through a hard day or a tough time in life. I love the one, "pretending to be someone you are not can be very tiring, why not save your energy for those who accept you for who you are." Seriously, can anything be more true than this? Nice post!

I love what you shared here....Thanks.

Very true, D! Can't be said better than these.

"you cannot make someone love you, you can however be someone who can be loved. The choice is then theirs."

I really believe in this. I think that a lot of girls out there still need to understand that love cannot be forced. Also, no matter how you improve yourself and make you lovable, if the person you want to love you still fail to do so, that doesn't mean something is wrong with you. That just mean that he/she isn't the one.

How are you D?

This one is so real...

You cannot make someone love you, you can however be someone who can be loved. The choice is then theirs.

Hi thanks for sharing these priceless quotes. I feel, even a couple on the verge of separation can save their marriage if they go through these quotes. Good blogging.
