Compromise

In order to have a long term healthy relationship you got to be willing to compromise on certain things. Yet, this is a trait that some adults lack. Thus, listed below are a couple of key things to be aware of with a potential partner.

1. Not Willing To Put Your Interests First Ever

If someone you care about ask you to join them in doing something they really enjoy and it doesn’t compromise your morals and values, be willing to do the activity with them occasionally, even if it’s just for an hour.

2. Not Willing To Answer Specific Questions

A person that you’re in a relationship with shouldn’t have an issue in answering a specific question that you ask them with a specific answer, without needing to get upset and mad, especially if they got nothing to hide.

Not Your Decision

We get to decide a lot of things in life as adults, whether that pertains to what we do for a living or who we decide to be in a relationship with. Yet, one thing we don’t get to choose is how we might of made someone feel by something we did.

As a result, if someone does tell you that you hurt their feelings, I recommend that you first apologize to the individual, even if you don’t feel like you did anything wrong.

Next, ask the person why do they feel that you did something to hurt their feelings, because you might of did something to them unintentionally. Furthermore, by asking, you can do a better job to avoid doing it again in the future.

To Date Or Not To Date?

The goal should always be for both a man and a woman to try and make a great impression on anybody they’re interested in dating, mainly so the person will want to go out with them. However, there are certain things that can be done unintentionally, which can hinder your chances.

  • Trying To Borrow Money Before Even Going On The First Date

For a lady to do this, it can be perceived that she really isn’t dating to get to know the guy but just looking for someone to give her some money. Next, if a guy does this , it comes completely off as him not being stable enough financially to even be trying to date at the moment.

  • Expecting To Be Made A Top Priority Overnight By The Other Person

Everybody that you meet initially isn’t going to make you the top priority in their life over night. Thus, you don’t want to get too emotional with the person when they don’t and potentially come off as crazy to them.

Debt Season

During the holiday season most people usually spend more money on gifts then what they actually can afford. Furthermore, a lot of people often go in debt during the holidays that isn’t easy for them to get out of. As a result, listed below are a couple of things that should help reduce or eliminate holiday debt completely.

Bi-weekly Pay Check

If you get paid bi-weekly there is two months within the year where you will get paid three times instead of the normal two. Thus, treat those two paychecks as a yearly bonus and put that money aside as your Christmas saving.

Income Tax

Instead of blowing all your income tax money if you’re lucky enough to get anything back after filing your taxes, leverage some if not all of that money towards a Christmas saving for the end of the year.

Carry Yourself Like A Lady

It’s a dream of most women to meet the right guy for them one day and eventually get married. Yet, it’s important for a woman to carry herself like a lady on a regular while she’s single.

A woman might have already met a man she’s attracted to and feel he will make a great husband. However, the guy will more than likely just view her always only as a fun girl if she’s out doing any and everything with just about anybody and consistently not carrying herself like a lady around him, even if he does enjoy being around her.

Take Pride In Your Job

It can get tough sometime at a job to stay motivated, especially if it’s not your job dream job. However, it’s important to take pride and do your best in whatever you’re currently doing for a living.

Remember the company can take the badge and laptop back if you decide to leave, but the knowledge and experience you gain while working there they can’t get that back.

As a result, you can utilize those things to be an even more valuable employee at your future job(s) and be in a position to demand even more throughout your career as well.

All In or All Out

Any successful relationship involves some compromising on both sides in order for it to work. However, I feel like there are some things that both people must fully believe and have naturally together.

Great Chemistry

  • We should strive to be with someone that the chemistry just flows naturally with while on the phone or talking to the individual in person. Also, the conversation should rarely feel force like either of you had to work hard to find something to discuss.

Believe In Similar Key Values In Life

  • If you believe in some form of a higher power and the person you’re with is an Atheist who doesn’t, this type of situation can be a key detriment to the relationship definitely in the long term if not even in the short term.

Holiday Safety Tips

Burglaries and thefts are known to spike during the holiday season. As a result, I’ve provided a few things to try and avoid below to help decrease crimes.

1. Leaving Valuable Visible Items In Your Car

  • If it only takes a few seconds to put an item in the trunk of your car and out of sight, then it’s best to do that over leaving it visible and increasing the chances of someone breaking into your vehicle for it.

2. Going To The ATM Bank Late At Night

  • Try and go to the ATM during business or high traffic hours oppose to late at night, when you might be the only person withdrawing money and more likely targeted by a criminal.

3. Stopping To Get Gas Late At Night

  • You have to get our your car to pump gas and similar to withdrawing money at an ATM, nobody else might be at the gas station at that time, which can embolden a potential robber, even if they weren’t planning on trying to rob you.

Can Choose Friends, Not Family

We can choose our friends in life but we can’t choose family. Thus, it’s important for us to try and treat family members as we do with our friends, by loving them for their good qualities and accepting them for their imperfections.

Be Aware Of Their Shortcomings

Nobody is perfect, why as humans, we all have different strengths and weaknesses. Therefore, if you got somebody you love that’s known to not be on time hardly for anything, it’s best to not depend on that person for something like dropping you off at the airport for a schedule flight if you can help it.

Love From A Distance When Needed

Everybody that we love don’t know how to deal with personal issues they might be going through, which can impact how they treat us. Furthermore, some people we love don’t know how to provide us with words of encouragement when we open up to them and discuss things we’re dealing with.

As a result, it’s important to know when to distance ourselves from love ones when they start to impact us in a negative way consistently from where we’re trying to go in life, as we should do with friends as well.
