I’ve realized that one of my main goals is to find a worthwhile and long term relationship.
For most of us, it’s been an adventure in trial and error and learning through pain and heart-break. In light of Valentine’s Day approaching this week, I am going to touch on one of my favorite topics of all time: I spent most of my time in my late teens and early twenties on finding love, or so I thought at the time.
In actuality I was seeking self-acceptance, approval and identity.
I think the answer is simple, that most of us have never been educated in this fundamental area of our development.
I noticed you have entries on how to keep a relationship and on how to end a relationship so would you consider writing an entry on what you perceive to be the best way to find a worthwhile relationship.
How to avoid making the same mistakes, overcoming fears, keeping up motivation after failure etc.” Regardless of our culture, our level of education or economic status, at the depth of all of us are the same desires- to love, to be loved, and to be happy.
But the act of seeking self-worth through my external relationships took me further from that which I longed.
I’ve always been an ambitious person and in addition to my job, I’ve often worked on side projects and other interests.
Of course we could add other desires to this list, like money and wealth and fancy things, but when you drill into these things, the reason for wanting them is so that we can appear more desirable, and will hopefully be loved and accepted.
If love is something so fundamentally important to us, then why is it that we have so many issues and misunderstandings in the area of finding it?
