Self-knowledge is the key to all relationships – all of them! Not just in dating or marriage. When you truly know yourself, you also know what is right for you and who you should associate with. Not everyone wants the things that you want and this is vitally important to understand when planning on pairing up with someone for the long haul. For example, something as simple as, if you are a positive and upbeat type of person, you will not want to tolerate being around someone who is constantly whining and complaining as your companion. If you are a positive person and know what you want in life, those types of people are not for you. The key is knowing what is for you, before chumming up with just anyone, for the sake of having a partner.
You must choose your partner based upon the future that you want for yourself. When you truly know yourself, you choose your partner based on who you know you are and what you would like to achieve in life. If you have ever been with someone just for the sake of being with someone, you later realized it was a mistake and looking back, regretted it. What matters is that you learned the lesson and keep moving forward.
The key is knowing where you want to be yourself first, and from there, choosing someone who also has that same ambition and wants to get there with you. The fact is that it is far more important to love yourself first than it is to love someone else. We’ve all in our lives, loved someone so much that we’d do anything for them. Your truth is to make that someone be yourself and do whatever it takes to make you happy first!
