Love can be easy, but in order to get there, there are a number of things to first consider.
Before learning to love the right way, there are certain things to one must keep in mind.
Here is a list of 10 of them.
1. Peace & Self-esteem
Should you not be at peace with yourself, or somewhat at a satisfying level with self-confidence, then any relationship you enter into, is bound to be problematic in nature.
2. Down in the dumps
Love is not the cure to sadness or depression. You have to be first happy with yourself before you're happy with someone else.
3. Thinking things through
If you're not serious about doing something long-term, don't delve into commitment and exclusivity.
A relationship isn't a place to seek validation. Validation should come from within.
5. Beauty is only skin-deep
Looks and money will fade, it is the real stuff which shall remain. If you're looking for the former, you're not looking for something serious.
Love can only exists where ego cease to exists.
A relationship is about two people, but it mostly about doing what you can to make another happy, because it makes you happy.
8. Be confident
How you handle yourself, is how you're telling the world to handle you.
9. Outside them
You're your own person, be sure to have good balance, and a life outside this other person.
