“Explore the possibilities. Be yourself. Find a person who matches with you. Take the risk, but be honest. If it works, keep going. If it doesn’t work, then do yourself and your partner a favor: Walk away; let her go. Don’t be selfish. Give your partner the opportunity to find what she really wants, and at the same time give yourself the opportunity. If it’s not going to work, it is better to look in a different direction. If you cannot love your partner the way she is, someone else can love her just as she is. Don’t wast your time, and don’t waste your partner’s time. That is respect.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz, The Mastery of Love
Frustrated? Angry? Upset? …Wake up on the wrong side of the bed? Be respectful, kind, and courteous anyway.
“Being listened to and heard is one of the greatest desires of the human heart. And those who learn to listen are the most loved and respected.” ~ Richard Carlson, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
“Knowledge will give you power, but character respect.” ~ Bruce Lee
