Feed The Relationship

Morning Word
When it comes to love, we reach our potential with each other not when we hold back, but when we give more. Whatever you give the relationship, feeds the relationship. You can’t keep a plant alive by depriving it of one of the most important things it really needs which is water. And you can’t keep a relationship evolving by depriving it of one of the major things it really needs which is love. You have to trust letting a person see through your entire spirit even if you have things inside of you that you may not like. A man’s love will protect and ease a woman out of her insecurities, and a woman’s love will nurture and move a man further away from his. Our love for each other helps us heal and deal with things we may not necessarily like about ourselves. This is a major reason why the right person in your life will start having you feel better about yourself. The prescription to your pain isn’t given to you, it’s given to the person who can bring out the best in you.

Unconditional Love

Morning Word
That unconditional love usually is the best love. It’s the love where you both pour into each other so much that it overflows into everything that you do. It’s the love where you have a best friend. It’s the love where you never break trust. It’s the love where you can have healthy disagreements with each other. It’s the love where even when you get on each other’s last nerve, your first nerve and first instinct will always be to love them regardless. It’s the love where you don’t keep reminding them of their flaws. It’s the love where you don’t fall asleep until you know they have made it home safe. It’s the love where you wake up to long beautiful text messages with breakfast in bed and 3 sliced strawberries. It’s the love where telephone conversations have you losing track of time like you both were in high school all over again. It’s the love where you feel like a much better person with them than without them. That unconditional love definitely is the best love.

Dating

Morning Word
Dating is a place where two adults set out to discover each other’s suitability for marriage. It’s where you go out to see who is compatible with you emotionally, mentally and spiritually. This is the beginning of where you learn about similarities and differences with each other. It’s two complete people looking for someone else they can spend the rest of their life with. It’s not a place for broken people to find healing at the expense of someone else’s time and energy. It’s not a place where you seek out someone to save you from bad decisions you have made in your personal life. It’s not a place where you infect people with your depression by passing your pain along. It’s a place where you both seek to bring value to each other’s life because you truly want to be happy.

Ended Relationship

Morning Word
Stop beating yourself up because the relationship didn’t work out. Stop taking all of the responsibility behind you and someone else not being together anymore. At the end of the day, all you can do is put your best foot forward when you are trying to establish something special with someone else. You don’t have control over the outcome. You don’t have control over how much effort they give or how much love they express back. All you can do is love someone the best way that you know how and try to give them happiness more than you give them headaches. We are not meant to stay connected with everyone we fall in love with. Sometimes you grow and evolve better as a person when you finally let go of wanting fairy tales to happen with certain people. One ended relationship is not the end of your love life. You will still have another opportunity in the future to be in the kind of relationship that you feel like you deserve.

Take Your Time

Morning Word
At the end of the day, love isn’t going anywhere. There is no need to rush something that you really aren’t prepared to have. Take your time enjoying another person’s soul. Take your time laying a solid foundation. Take your time sowing a good seed. Often times we don’t have the hindsight to see how much the work that we do in the beginning will benefit each other in the long run. When you build a house, you don’t rush laying down the foundation, you take your time. Wash each other off with encouraging words as much as you can. Listen to understand instead of listening to reply. Be patient with someone as you learn more about their perspectives and how they view the world. If you take your time understanding each other and going through the process, that process will take its time making sure that the both of you do not fail. Everything you do at the beginning of a relationship, will help you mold and keep your relationship. So take your time with love, it isn’t going anywhere.

One Day

Morning Word
And then one day you finally meet them out the blue. Their presence just feels right in your life. They begin to leave good impressions on your heart with little effort. They start changing how you look at the world and how you look at love. They don’t make things unnecessarily hard for no reason at all. You both start off on the same page and end up enjoying each chapter that you both begin with each other. And for the first time in your life, you realize that your heart has never felt this safe and secure around anyone at all. That feeling helps drive you further into their arms, falling in love with not knowing where this new love is taking you. They start to flood your thoughts throughout the day now. You haven’t day dreamed this much about someone since, you were younger and had a crush on the most popular person in school. But these dreams are entirely different. These dreams take you to another level of happiness the clouds aren’t given access to. You spent so much time shooting for the stars, but to have one within arms reach leaves you feeling like you don’t need anything else in the world. As long as you can have their love day in and day out, you are blessed.

Being Alone

Morning Word
You have to be comfortable alone first before you can be comfortable with someone else. So many of us want to have a companion for all the wrong reasons. It’s not always about what we can receive from the other person but what we can give. You can’t give someone the best version of yourself if you feel horrible on the inside. You can’t give someone the highest level of love that they deserve from you if you dont even know how to give it to yourself first and foremost. The thing about relationships is, they magnify who you are on the inside while bringing both your flaws and your best features to the surface. You can’t give someone happiness from an unhappy place. Being the best version of yourself, truly will put you and your mate in the best possible position to succeed together in love.

Independence

Morning Word
We are so stuck on being independent that, sometimes we can let our own independence ruin our relationships. We enter relationships with such a disposable attitude and then wonder why we are always single and can never keep anyone around worth having. We forget to remember that the person we are in love with needs to feel needed. How can we find love if mentally we have already adapted the attitude that we don’t need a companion? Some of us aren’t even looking for love, we are looking for people who can stroke our ego’s. We have gotten away from learning how to work together with each other. Somewhere we took a wrong turn and started letting money, social status and our ego’s, become more important than our need in having someone special in our lives. We all truly need someone who can love us and help keep us grounded in life.

Problem With Dating

Morning Word
The problem with dating today is, everyone’s mentality. The minute we started putting sex before love, we started setting ourselves back. The minute we started putting Netflix and Chill before “Courting”,  we started going in the wrong direction. Women are afraid of men only entertaining them for their bodies, and men are afraid of women emotionally using them to repair themseleves because of the damage the last few men did. We need to get back to a place where we start putting real face to face conversations before text messages. We need to stop hiding behind our poker faces and have a little more faith in being transparent with our emotions and what we desire out of the next person. We need to break this unhealthy habit of thinking that we cant trust letting people get to know us and vice versa. Let’s hold hands and take a walk and talk instead of always texting all the time. Let’s talk about the storms we have been through and pray that the person we are opening up to is someone strong enough to go through the weather with us. Let’s get back to trying to truly understand each other.

Your Standards

Morning Word
Just because you lower your standards when it comes to love, that does not mean that you will increase your chances of finding someone special. The truth is, when you lower your standards, all you end up doing is; signing yourself up for more headaches, more drama and more heartbreak. If someone can’t love you at a level that you deserve to be loved, then let them go and wait on better. You deserve to have a relationship that helps you grow and inspires you, not one that has you questioning your worth as a person.
