When people look for a new relationship, they either look for someone to complete them or make them happy. Often, they try to present themselves in the best possible way for their imagined future partner. Instead of trying hard to meet “the one”, try to find the missing parts of you.
Most of us express only a small part of who we are. We limit ourselves to the personality that we have developed in response to our childhood environment.
Don’t be scared to disappoint people. The reality is that nobody is living your life for you. For this reason, you need do what’s right for you and live your life the way you feel it. Just learn how to be yourself.
Confidence is the key. If you are attracted to any qualities in someone else, find or develop those qualities in yourself.
We all get into ruts and routines we use to get through the day. Don’t put life on auto-pilot – live consciously, engage with life. The simplest way to stop assessing others as potential life partners is to just stop looking for a partner and connect with the people you meet with genuine interest.
When you meet someone with whom you have a good connection, allow that connection to develop and grow. Don’t hurry things. There is no need to play games. A successful long-term relationship is not a game. The best you can do is live your life more fully, learn to accept and love yourself more fully, and you will love and be loved more fully.
