If A Relationship Doesn’t Enhance Your Peace What’s The Point Of Being In One?
Don’t just focus on how good a relationship feels, ask yourself, “Does it enhance my peace of mind?”
Some people think it’s crazy to turn down a better paying job with more benefits but it’s an easy decision for those who understand the importance of emotional health and the peace of mind that comes with having more freedom and less stress even if it means less money.
The decision to be in a relationship should have the same standards. Don’t just focus on how good it feels, ask yourself, “Does this person enhance my peace” Notice I said peace, not love, because love changes. People fall in and out of love every day. But the one thing that’s constant with the right person is they always have a way of bringing calm into your world.
I’ll take peace over love any day. And while having both is ideal, I say start with peace then love will be more long lasting.
