Have the wisdom to see the importance of giving you all to your relationships today!
When you see yourself as valuable enough to deserve love and attention from the other person, you form a boundary that you will not compromise.
Together as a result of our differences and unique distinctions, we complement each other.
Understanding only comes when you stand under a real desire to know, love, and comprehend the other person, embracing the uniqueness of who they are.
We cannot remain so entrenched in our view that we cannot change or adapt, and we must know when not to compromise too far.
In order to maximize your life and relationships, you have to minimize your load.
In most cases of healthy compromise, both parties feel they are "right." Healthy compromise is the hallmark of healthy relationships.
The Lord's peace often results when each side comes close to His viewpoint, His perfect plan for both parties.
No matter what has happened to you, the only hope of a healthy future relationship is to let go of the past.
Negotiating win-win possibilities in relationships often means seeing things through the eyes of the others involved in the situation or problem.
A little self-esteem goes a long way in garnering the courage to ask and answer questions that reveal who you really are and what you really want.
Once you look realistically at who you really are and what you desire in a healthy relationship, you are ready to enter into the research that will lead to sound decisions.
Physical touch/intimacy should correspond with commitment. This doesn’t mean anything goes if you are engaged. What is your motivation -- power and control, gratifying your own ego, meeting a selfish need, or genuine affection?
