Stop Regretting

Stop Regretting
1/11

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. Image courtesy: Getty Images

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.

Be in your Senses

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.
