If you don’t put any work into your relationship, your relationship will suck.
If you take your relationship for granted, your relationship will suck.
If you simply expect your relationship to be awesome, your relationship will suck.
If you take take take from your relationship but never give to your relationship, your relationship will suck.
If you think your career is more important than your relationship, your relationship will suck. And your career will suck also.
And most definitely, if your relationship sucks, your life is going to be ONE GIANT SHITTY SUCK FEST.
THAT IS FOR DAMN SURE.
Yet, there are so many people who just EXPECT awesome relationships without putting the work in to create awesome relationships.
Actually, let’s reframe that:
YOUR ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIP SETS THE FUCKING TONE FOR YOUR ENTIRE FUCKING LIFE.
It becomes the benchmark for all...
Lovers, we need to give our partners permission to be an asshole sometimes.
Now before you throw a hissy fit, it’s important we differentiate between being a bona-fide asshole versus occasionally displaying asshole behaviour.
There is an asshole person. Just general dicks. Their dickishness is very much permanent.
Being a bona-fide asshole means your heart is shaped like a dick. Or it’s shaped like a butthole, either or. Meaning being an asshole is just WHO YOU ARE.
Then there is asshole behaviour. This is human reality. Dicks on occasion. Your humanness gets the best of you sometimes. You’re a good person who sometimes does not act so good.
We all have bad days. You say the wrong thing. You do the wrong thing. You don’t show up in the way you’re capable of. You act out of integrity. You say something hurtful to someone you care about. You get triggered, you break down, you act on impulse, you overreact.
