My Favorite Relationship Quote

My favorite relationship quote is the question: “How can anyone love you if you don’t love yourself, and how can you love others if you don’t love yourself?”

This used to be a problem for me–the concept of self-love—I thought it was the antithesis of a spiritual attitude and behavior. And I shied away from songs and concepts like “The Greatest Love of All” which goes so far as to say that the greatest love is learning to love oneself and the greatness which is inside each one of us.

But I came to realize that all too often in our western society we make everything so black and white and rigid: there is only one way to do or believe something. This is “scarcity thinking” rather than a “prosperity” or “abundance mentality”. When viewing this subject through the lens of a “prosperity mentality” I can see that there is a healthy self-love which everyone must develop. For love is a driving force of the Law of Attraction which is one of the Laws of the Universe which enable us to be successful in relationships and all other aspects of life.

So, how then do we begin on the path to this healthy self-love?

o First we must ASK for it and in order to do this we have to BELIEVE that we have the right to and deserve to do so. That means we have to rid ourselves of any erroneous notions that we are somehow inherently evil or bad. This was never stated in any Scripture; in fact the opposite was stated: the fact that we are born noble and in the image and likeness of the Creator, which is the source of all goodness.

o Then, after we have ASKED and came to BELIEVE that we are essentially good and deserve to love our own selves, we have to RECEIVE with gratitude the blessings and bounties that have been bestowed upon us from the Universe. We have to give thanks for our mind, body and spirit and whatever particular characteristics and talents which have been deposited within us. (A good exercise to assist us with this process is to first inventory our individual characteristics; make three columns on a paper and head the columns with the words, Mind, Body & Spirit; then list under each one our personal special and unique attributes, as well as the ones we share with others.)

o Then we demonstrate the love that we are developing for ourselves by making noble goals to further actualize and improve our unique personal characteristics (which will be the subject of another article entitled “Power Goal Setting”).

Relationship Quotes For You to Make the Most of Your Relationship

Relationship quotes can serve as good examples for us to apply in our lives. We need to understand them first if we want to put them into practice. After experiencing the meaning of the quotes, we can then say that we enjoyed them. Therefore, here are some explanations for you.

You will find many people who will want to accompany you along the journey of life. However, most of them will be here only in good moments and will back off in bad situations, where you will mostly need them. So, look for somebody who will be always things here when things go wrong as well.

What makes a relationship to last long is your willingness to give whatever you have instead of taking from the relationship.

A relationship needs to move on with time. If it needs to end at this moment, end it and forgive everything. You will find that at different stages of your life, there are some people who come in and mark us forever.

The best way to construct a relationship is to befriend the person first. You will realize with time that this friendship has turned into a more beautiful relationship.

Everything revolves around love. Being in love is such a wonderful feeling. Therefore, take good care of your partner and of your relationship. A relationship will flourish if you realize that the two of you need to merge together as one. Hence, that affinity needs to be present.

You should understand that when you are in a relationship, you are bonded with people and you need to be fully committed in it. That self-satisfaction that you will get in being in a relationship where things are going on smoothly is enough to make your life successful.

Happiness and distress arise from our relationships. That is why it is essential to maintain trust, transparency and good things in our relationship.

You need to come up with new recipes to rekindle things in a relationship because love is something that you can take for granted.

Finally, all these help us to understand the importance of love and relationships in our life.
