Day 7 – Best Relationship Advice. #21dayschallenge http://ugbloc.com/ugblogmonth-april-may-2020/
I have never been in any intimate relationship before so I must admit that the advice am sharing is from my close friends. Though most of the views are based on paradigm of Christianity, my brothers and sisters in other religions can still use them.
Love is from God and He is love (1 John 4:8), so you must not abuse it in any way. Entering in any relationship means that you do acknowledge this and by abiding by it, you receive God’s blessings.
Well, I know there are many types of relationships out there! But I will give advice for the relationship between a man and a woman. From my own discovery, tested but not proven, I believe that a perfect couple should be people who do know God, each other and mature.
Therefore I have only 3 areas for perfection for any one intending to start a relationships. Mastering these 3 areas means you know what you want to get from that relationship.
1. Knowing God. Believing in the Almighty and having trust that what He has bonded no man can separate starts the button for you. Borrow a leaf from married church leaders, majority haven’t separated ever since they were joined together. Okay the unmarried church leaders, track their relationships with their siblings, parents and relatives. You will also find that majority haven’t separated or denied each other! So I kindly advice you to take your relationship to God. Be married in Church as Paul told the Corinthians.
2. Know your partner well. You can’t get married or start a relationship with a person you don’t know well. If you don’t know me fully, you don’t love me fully. It means am just with you for a while but there’s already another person in question! My best advice will be that love is not built around fallacy, when you lie to another your relationship will definitely be shaken. Be open and always speak the truth. What’s yours will always be yours.
3. Be mature enough to take on your partner. Relationships are not for the young. Yes, intimate relationships! This is simply because they are not ready to handle the outcomes. If you’re young minded, go for counselling. When you’re mature, you will know what to do in any situation of the relationship. You won’t copy others, you will do your thing.
Those 3 are my fundamental advice for anyone planning to start or is in a relationship. Read, read and read all the books on love and seek advice from your mentors while implementing those 3 and you will have a concrete relationship.
Know your God, Know your partner and be mature.
