So you think you’re in love? 

So you think you’re in love aye? Consider this: After you’re certain that you are head over heels and madly in love, the next key is to not let the person you’ve allowed to get that close to steel the peace you’ve learned to manifest on your own. That’s the trick of living whole, healthy and with another person.

We were all raised differently, by different people and with all sorts of standards. Don’t take everything personal; but do establish reasonable boundaries. You deserve to be happy, but you must first be happy and at peace with yourself.

If you can apologize when you’ve crossed the line, or when you can get over the fact that the other person doesn’t understand the line they’ve crossed; then you are ready to walk beside another flawed, human being that wasn’t raised by your standards.
