[RECAP] 12 Lessons on Love and Relationships

  • Love requires commitment and work whether you are single, dating, in a relationship or married.
  • We all desire love. We desire to be seen, protected, and safe. We don’t want to be controlled, manipulated or overwhelmed by another human being, especially one we love and who professes to love us. We want to be ourselves rather than collapsing into ourselves. We all desire love.
  • Work on yourself in all of your relationships, romantic or otherwise. Learn yourself and if you are married or in a relationship, learn your partner.
  • Use your voice! Dear woman, for many of us, no one is holding a gun to our heads. Let’s make decisions that teach others how to treat us by speaking our no’s and yeses.
  • Everyone is fighting a battle, and these battles may not even be in our relationships, but the battles will slip in.
  • Always ask yourself, “what do I want?”
  • Always ask yourself, “What does the person I’m partnered with want.”
  • Show grace, because we are all walking towards the best versions of ourselves
  • But set your boundaries
  • Betrayal cuts deep
  • Love is vulnerable and transparent whether it is with our finances, dreams, health issues and personal battles. You can’t truly do love if you are hiding.
  • Don’t be caught up with how it has been done. In your relationship, what works for both of you?
