It will be a challenge to score with each other if you’re always trying to score against each other. True love does not seek to be selfish but rather to serve. With this type of love U comes before I and helps Us build a better We. #DoingRelationshipDifferently
💜💯. I was in a relationship for almost 9 years. 9 years! Do you know how heartbroken and scared I was to be alone again?! But I have to say being alone for almost 5 years now has been a blessing. I have found myself again and enjoy feeling confident doing all things alone😄 I challenge you to go out to eat by yourself, go to the movies by yourself, join a club for a hobby you love. Be you! 100% you without being defined by someone else. I see so many “relationship” people bounce from one long relationship to the next because they fear being alone or they have this need to not want to be the 3rd or 5th wheel hanging with their friends that are in couples and that makes me sad they have no idea who they are and what they have to offer on their own. I’m not against relationships I love bonding and all things Romantic I just believe you have to be by yourself and get to know yourself before you try to love anyone else💜
I know this can be hard to do but the reality is, all events are neutral until you add meaning to them. Most of the time when someone is being rude to you, it has nothing to do with you. Ask before assuming. #coupleslearn
Yes Jim Carrey, while I agree to the context of nothing bothering me anymore. To go deeper into that, he actually means that he doesn’t take people or anything else personal.
Although when you are bothered, it’s a trigger and moment to look into yourself to see how you are a reflection of who or what bothered you. Then move into the process of understanding, healing, and forgiving🙏🏼😇
Sometimes in longer term relationships we can get very comfortable - too comfortable
We take for granted the person we love the most and we stop putting time and energy into this really important connection
Remind yourself each day why you choose to be with your partner - slow down and make an effort to let them know just how much they mean to you

I read Patrick Lencioni’s book on teamwork as preparation for a team building workshop I had to conduct a few years ago. His ideas made sense and stuck with me forever. If there is one ingredient for a successful team and teamwork then it is “TRUST” ! Think about it. Can we even operate leave alone work together if all we are worried about is who is going to do what to harm us? So folks time spent on building trust is the number one productivity investment to make. Greatest bang for your time, effort and resources will come from here. Trust!
When a man hears the word “independent woman” he is thinking one of two things. ⠀
On one hand, he's happy with being with a woman who can take care of herself. ⠀
He is also thinking about the strategic collaboration he can have with her long-term. ⠀
But on the other hand, he's thinking “how much of this aggressive nature that can come with an independent woman can I deal with?”

Names: Addy & Nikki
How they met: At a house party of a mutual friend
Status: Dating, preparing ourselves for marriage. We’ve been dating 3 yrs. We are not engaged as of yet BUT will be in due time. Sooner than later.
How they knew they were the one for each other:
HER- I knew Addy was the one when he went away on a trip to Mexico with his boys. We were just dating back then and nothing was "official" but I remember feeling like it was no big deal that he was leaving UNTIL he left! The transition from speaking to him every day to realizing that he was overseas with limited wifi was legitimately stressful for me (as silly as that sounds)! That week, I wore every single article of clothing that he gave me, watched every single video of him, stalked his social media accounts, twiddled my thumbs, and realized that I did not want to be a part from him EVER! Haha I got so much joy just from speaking to him in small pockets of time and actually came to terms with the fact that I loved him. While it's super weird and random, that's the first time I had ever felt that way about anyone and realized that Addy was the one for me.
HIM- When we first started dating I was not looking for a relationship. I was just doing my own thing, looking to have “fun”. Shortly after a few dates I realized that she was not like anyone I’d encountered before. The way she carried herself as a lady exemplifying class while having a personality that was so loving and down to Earth enticed and attracted me. We were in NYC for Super Bowl Boulevard and although temperatures were freezing cold, I could remember not caring because her and I were having the time of our lives. It was at that point that I knew she was the one.
Celibate during courtship?
Interesting enough we did not start off celibate in our relationship. However, through the unction of GOD and our willingness to be obedient we have been celibate for the past 2 years.
Challenges faced dating God’s way: The challenges we face dating God's way have to do with battling temptation (individually and collectively). Since Addy and I have previously been (continued 👇🏽) @addydoes #howtodategodsway
⁉️Do you Have ANGER ISSUES⁉️😡 Sometimes we all can, and each have different symptoms showing it. Some of us avoid this emotions and thus exploding it unto someone else when triggered.🤯
Sometimes we suppress and deny it then eventually manifest a dis-ease or pain from it.🤕
Or we become depressed and allowing that powerful emotion to pity ourselves through oppression.☹️
If you don’t know how to express your anger or you don’t know where it’s coming from, here are some key ways to understand it👇🏼
1. Make anger your friend✨
2. Why Anger can be positive✨
3. What to do when you’re angry✨
If you have a situation going on and you are not sure how to process through it or why it’s necessary... you can certainly message me and I’ll help you out 😇♥️Namaste
Girls who are addicted to bad boys — they know they’re bad for them but still end up with them anyway — usually had a father figure who withdrew his love or attention from her during childhood, resulting in her abandonment issues. She’s trying to resolve the unfinished situation in her past with her father figure by repeating these abusive relationships. Unless you understand that dynamic, she’ll always be a mystery to you.

Let it go! Living in the past does nothing for your future, but only makes you hope that your future reminds you of your past. I don't want girls like my ex's, I want the girl who is going to be my wife. My first love, my first kiss, etc. is irrelevant, for I wasn't even the same person that I am today. I wasn't yet walking with Christ, plus I was immature. So tripping over my first love would be like missing the first Dez. Often times, people can't get their "first" out of their minds and they'll start comparing everyone they date to that person, as if their checklist is based on them. Those times were good times, but they're in the past. I don't have time to be living in the past when I'm preparing to be somebody's husband in the future. #love#relationships#ex#relationshipgoals#single#singles#dating#relationshipadvice#couples#bae#firstlove#marriage#thewait
Boundaries are a way for us to put ourselves first (which let’s be honest, is really freaking hard) and regulate our relationships (yes, relationship with ourselves too). We all need boundaries in our lives in order to live healthily, happily, and productively.
Today, I am making sure I get to the gym BEFORE I help family and friends with whatever they may ask of me. What boundary are YOU making sure you honor today?

Are you tired of exes coming in and out of your life when they want? ⚫️ Are you tired of toxic friends telling you what you can’t do...telling you that you can’t change for the better? ⚫️ Are you tired of toxic family members only coming around when they need something from you? ⚫️ Are you tired of every toxic relationship in your life that has been draining you mentally, spiritually, and emotionally? 🔴 Well, it’s time to reclaim your peace of mind and your time! 🔴 I am Charlese J best selling author, entrepreneur, and speaker and it wasn’t until I cut toxic relationships (or let’s be honest situationships) from my life that I was able to reclaim my peace and purpose. When I was able to cut the toxic clutter from my life, I was able to start a business, write books, and create a movement with so much focus and clarity. 🔴 I firmly believe it is the toxic relationships in your life that is preventing you from writing the book you always wanted to write, from starting the business you always wanted to start, and from traveling to the places you always wanted to visit. 🔴 Now, many people call this time of the year Cuffing Season but I call it a Cutting Season. 🔴 A season to cut every toxic relationship from your life that no longer serves you and is holding you back from where God needs to take you. 🔴 If you’re ready to finally cut these relationships from your life, join my FREE call on tonight November 19th at 9:00 p.m. EST.
