⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀Friday’s Intention: Relationships According to the Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, love is an “affection and tenderness felt by lovers.” If the feeling is not mutual than it isn’t love... I believe there are three 🔑 elements to having a successful relationship: timing, chemistry, and faith. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My first “love” was a junior at the time while I was a senior. So, as you can imagine, the timing just was not there for us... My first “love” and I had good chemistry. But there were things that needed work. Whenever I tried to talk about topics that were deep and serious to me, she often veered the conversation to a less serious and lighter topic. My “first” love may have had faith in me, but I did not have faith in her as well as myself. I chose to see her kindness as a sign of petty. I saw a lead on as a sign of thirst of attention. If I were to have gone back and been just a little bit more patient, a little bit more understanding, and a little bit more faithful to myself and her, maybe just maybe, we might have been a thing... 💔 For those who are having a hard time with their romantic life, I hope this advice helps and I wish you the best of luck. You can do it 💪🏻 Feel free to share what you learned with those you know that may be having a hard time. Just remember the three things you need to be align with your partner before you get into a serious relationship: timing, chemistry, and faith. And it’s okay to be rejected or led on...just don’t spend your time dwindling on it or else the person who feels the pain is yourself and yourself only... Learn from it and continue on with your life with confidence! With much love for my audience, God bless!
