All our lives we get into a futile search of the *right person*. And while doing that we forget to be one. You must always remember that you are someone’s right person. Just be the best version of yourself and soon enough, you will find what you are looking for. The trick is not in investing time on finding your right person but it is in investing time in yourself to become a better person every day.

But then yes of course, it is going to be worth it. The happiness of finding and keeping your life partner in your life is beyond any hardship you will have to go through.

It takes a lot of strength to accept your mistakes and apologize. But it takes even greater strength to forgive. You must be able to summon that strength to sustain a healthy relationship. There’s no relationship without some fights and arguments. But the two of you must have a mind to apologize and a heart to forgive. Because as the quote says, there can be no love without forgiveness. But again, there’s a fine line between forgiving and being made fool of.
“In the end there doesn’t have to be anyone who understands you. There just has to be someone who wants to.” – Robert Brault
In a relationship, intention is very important. A lot of times your partner may not really be able to understand you but that’s okay as long as he is trying to. It’s okay as long as he wants to. Because having someone who wants to understand you means having someone who really cares about you and your thoughts. It is not easy to find someone who cares about what you think, what you feel, and what you want. So, if you find someone who does, stick with them.
