Bernie Parent penned his second column for Philly.com today and, of course, he speaks writes the language of love:
It is crucial to keep your relationship healthy and alive. Take note of two things: allow your partner to be their own individual, and realize you are on a two-way highway. The secret is that we all have faults and defects. It is easy to dwell on the faults, but try to program your mind to focus on the good things. I am also a firm believer that friendship is a foundation and a staple in all relationships. You are going to come across issues and bumps in the road. If you have established a friendship and you both have recognized that the greatest substance in a healthy relationship is communication, things tend to work themselves out. If you have good communication, it goes a long way. If you don’t, you will eventually start moving in different directions.
Have fun, laugh, and life will reward you with beautiful experiences.
You don’t always get what you want, but you always get what you attract. What you are attracting is what you are thinking.
With love this Valentine’s Day,
Happy Valentine’s Day, lovers.
