The secret to having a long-lasting romantic relationship is to be mutually good and true to one another. Recognize your role in the relationship and be committed to it. You have to be openly vulnerable to your other half as you’re vulnerable to yourself. Ever wondered why you couldn’t maintain a relationship for at least a year? If you find yourself always getting into a new relationship, it would either be you’re not ready to be in one or you’re choosing the wrong person for you.
As you enter your twenties, one of your the plans that cross your mind will probably be finding a good partner for life. At some point in this new chapter of your life, you want to meet and be with a person who will love and stay with you despite the ugly parts of yourself. You want to invest in a person who’ll fight for you and support all your goals in life. You want to finally make a decision to settle with someone who’ll be there when you need a shoulder to cry on. Your other half, as they say.
Before you act out of impulse, train yourself to remain calm in situations like these. When you’re confronted with unsolicited criticism from people (especially those whom you don’t expect to hear from at all), understand that you don’t control what others have to say about you. Even if you live a life worth emulating, you won’t always get the feedback you think you deserve to hear. You can’t please everyone, and convincing yourself you are an exception will only burn you out. People will always have something to say, that’s just the way it is.
