They do not know any better.
They need energy from everyone else because they cannot generate it within.
These relationships are rarely giving and take.
They only take.
And you have only so much to give.
Because their mind is always giving them reasons of why you will.
That toxic friend, lover, even job - you hold on to them because you don't trust yourselves to find it again!
And when they behave like themselves, you feel disappointed, hurt, and resentful.
But it's quite possible, they have been that way always.
You just expected somebody else!
They seem easy but are not.
They feel permanent but are not.
They appear trivial but are not.
The more we understand them, the better we get at being happy with ourselves.
We don't spend time with ourselves.
Because we are scared of what we might find.
Your thoughts are your biggest strength, biggest enemy, or biggest competition.
You decide which role they play.
They start off awesome.
But the early excitement eventually fades.
Remind yourself why you got into it in the first place.
To be happy!
If you still want the relationship, do whatever it takes to make it happy again.
You do not have all the time in the world.
Tell them you love them,
Spend time with them.
It's far easier to be nice to others and have them like you for it than to meditate on your flaws and find out how much work you still have left to do on yourself!
They do not know what it is to receive love, so they do not know what it is to love.
There will always be a gap.
Question is - do you continue compensating for it, or realize it's true for the other side as well.
Your early excitement with a new relationship blinds you to their flaws, which will eventually be realized.
You will never find your better half if you don't think of yourself as a whole!
The best friendships will be made when not trying to seek friendships.
They will just happen.
It will feel like destiny.
The one thing I learned (and agree with) from the book "Courage to be disliked" is that every problem eventually boils down to interpersonal relationships.
It is hard-hitting at first to realize this, but the more you meditate on it, the clearer and more obvious it becomes.
"Life isn't about making relationships. It is about understanding why we make relationships."

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
