There is no handbook to teach us what is right or wrong in a relationship, but there is being honest with yourself about what you want and need, and being honest with the person you’re in a relationship with.
Too many times we meet someone, and we stay on our best behavior. We go into the relationship continuing to stay on our best behavior afraid of letting the other person see who we really are. The thing is we are not only lying to the other person about who we are, but we are lying to ourself. We are not only denying ourself the opportunity to be happy, but worst we are denying the other person the opportunity of knowing how amazing we are.
Never fool yourself into thinking that if you pretend to be someone you're not that it will make someone want you or love you more. Eventually the truth will alway reveals itself. You will never experience your true happiness or live your best life if you can not live in the world as your truth self.
A relationship must have honesty, communication, and respect. If you cannot be honest with yourself about yourself, and honest with your partner about who you are, what you need, and what you want, then you will never be able to have a relationship that makes you happy. But, instead you will continue to be in search of a happy and loving relationship.
Are you on the road of deception in your relationship or are you on the road of honesty?
Love and blessings in divine order,
