This might be true.
What do you think?
Most people arent in love, they just don’t know how to be alone.

It’s not always enough.
Sad, but true.
Love is not always enough to make things work. https://t.co/MPA2E7ij1J

A big difference.
This stuff is confusing.
Many people think someone is “the one” because they feel a strong connection, but are really confusing compatibility with chemistry. A strong relationship is built off of shared goals, interests, & values. Relying solely on your attraction to someone won’t last long term. https://t.co/Rd7sa98mpr

Not always a good thing…
y’all can’t keep walking into relationship wanting people to prove themselves to you just bc YOU got hurt in the past. we’ve all been hurt, betrayed, lied to, cheated on, etc. it doesn’t mean you get the right to make people jump through hoops to be treated right & respected. https://t.co/b6G1qycQQi

Don’t waste your time.
Too much work.
if you have to make a relationship ‘work’, it’s a waste of time.
healthy relationships are meant to *feel* effortless. yea, there will be conflicts, but conflicts get cleared up instantly because in healthy relationships, love is bigger than pride & they stand on strong core… https://t.co/A4X6mTZETM

And take a look in the mirror.
Bragging about everything you won’t do for your hypothetical partner is the very reason you don’t have a real partner. https://t.co/MWh8Jj3ZFW

That’s too bad.
Doesn’t seem fair, does it?
The more self-aware and “healed” you are, the harder it will be for you to find a healthy relationship. https://t.co/NQxA5j3NXl

So why pretend?
Staying for the kids isnt a good reason to stay married. They know yall dont like each other.

Definitely agree with this!
Gotta have your own life.
Having a life outside “your relationship” makes a healthy relationship much more than centring your whole existence on your partner https://t.co/aYZVzHVGc9

Not a flex.
In fact, it’s pretty creepy.
Having someone who’s obsessed with you isn’t the flex you think it is. If you see real obsession, you’ll run. https://t.co/nxLLz6oPCX

A hot take.
And a divisive one!
Put your spouse before your kids https://t.co/HIX56lx848

Don’t stress over it.
Words of wisdom.
Sex is important but far less important than people make it out to be and is nowhere near a critical pillar of a successful relationship.
Have it. Enjoy it. But don’t stress over it.

Some of these really made me think.
