High compatibility between people comes from the similarities in their lifestyles and values. Educated people usually date other educated people. Religious people usually date other religious people. People that are not compatible normally repel one another.
Cultivate gratitude wherever possible, even for the things that challenge you, as these help you to grow and build strength. Journaling can help you do that: At the end of each day, write 10 things that you are grateful for that day. Celebrate and recognize them. Soon you will see running themes and will be able to make them happen more often.
