Test Your Love
Over the years the term "Relationship", rather it be a friend or someone you're intimate with, has drastically changed. Let us go back to the 50s when divorce was a totaly NO! NO! People got married at the ripe age of 17 or 18 and even if they were happy or not they would sacrifice all they had just so they could avoid the deadly social suicide, divorce. Now today it seems as though relationships last a milisecond and even if they last for months or even years, either they have cheated, don't take the relationship as serious, are just with the person to fill an empty void ( as many people do), or they just dont want to carry that gross label on their forehead, SINGLE. Now let me not be so melodramatic about relationships because through my lifetime I've witnessed a handful of relationships that are worth to admire. Relationships aren't always going to perfect but when I look at the relationships around me its like " Why do people even bother being in one?."NO ONE IS LOYAL AND FAITHFUL, trust me. My outlook on relationships isnt completely in this light! I have been in a few long relationships that have taught me something that no other experience would be able to BUT the most precious lesson I have learned is- You have to love yourself entirely before getting into a relationship because if they can't add to that genuine love that you have for yourself then give 'em the boot!
I'am single and I plan to be for a very long time. I LOVE it this way! Im also completely thankful for my friends relationships because I use them as examples to why Im not in one ( No shade just enlightment), but just recently my best friend has gotten into a " relationship" and its rays of light has made its way through my tunnel. The notion of NO ONE IS LOYAL AND FAITHFUL has kind of turned, slightly.
Look at yourself in the mirror and ask these questions to yourself ( don't worry you're not crazy)
MILLION DOLLAR QUESTIONS:
Do you love yourself completely?
Do you think that it would take a long time for you to get over your partner?
Do you and your partner have a steady income to support a decent lifestyle?
Do you and your partner go out on dates and tell eachother how much you appreciate each other?
If you've answered no to more than two questions then you know the answer.
See with these four questios you have your first question which is love, second which is loyalty, third which is being wise about your present and future, and Fourth which is your communication.
Test it out!
Peace, Love, and, Sex
