    Stop Regretting

    Regret is one of the worst feelings any human being can encounter in their life. It breaks your strength and eventually you happen to lose faith in yourself. Decisions may go wrong sometimes and in such situations instead of sulking, you should pull up your socks and make a promise to yourself that this won’t happen ever with you again. Talking about relationships, you may falter in making a wise decision there too. So, instead of giving up on your faith list down the things you think went wrong in your first relationship and make sure that do not happen again. This list will help.

    You have a Separate Identity

    Remember that your partner is not your identity. You are a person who has a separate identity in this world. Your happiness should not be dependent on anyone else but you.

    Don’t Ignore your Near Ones

    When in a relationship, you start living in your own dreamy world which has no place for anybody else apart from you and your partner. This should be completely avoided. Give enough time to your family and friends. Give them the time they deserve and never forget that your relationship with your partner may or may not last but your relationship with your friends and your friends is undying.

    There’s not Always a Happy Ending

    Before entering into a relationship you must weigh it pros and cons because not all relationships have a fairy-tale ending. It may not end on a happy note and can leave you shattered. Be prepared for the worst.

    Don’t let your Emotions Empower you

    It is good to be head-over-heels in love with someone but at the same time you must also have a control over your emotions. Open up with your partner but not too much that the relationship starts taking a toll on your mental well-being.

    You become Vulnerable

    The moment you enter a relationship, you open up yourself to all the possibilities of getting hurt by your partner. Never forget this before entering into a relationship.

    You Deserve Respect

    Being in a relationship is not a big reason enough to get yourself abused. You should be loud and clear about this to your partner that you deserve respect and belittling each other will do no good to your relationship.

    The World doesn’t Revolve Around your Relationship

    Don’t ignore your other responsibilities towards your work, studies or family. You have commitments to other things as well. Don’t take everything for granted while you are with your partner.

    Be in your Senses

    When you are going to enter your first relationship, more than being in love with your partner, you are in love with the feeling of being in love. And that is when you happen to lose your senses. Accept the fact that your relationship can come to an end anytime to save yourself from the hurt.

    Don’t Change or Expect Someone to Change

    Don’t lose yourself in the relationship. Making adjustments is fine but don’t stop being who you are. Similarly, don’t expect your partner also to change.
