Ten "Pillows" to Start a Worthwhile Relationship

Stephen Levine gently asked, "If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call you could make, who you would call and what you would say? And why are you waiting?"
In real sense, this was what happens to me. I had the time and chance to walk on a road with the person I really love and I learned a lesson. As a youth, I really wanted to reduce the suffering from heartache, hurt and disappointment you faced. I wish to rise my voice in protest against the foolish ways love plus dating approached my life and my wise pillows I use to solve some huge situations.

It is good our Church prepares us for a purposeful life, but our young people should not be unprepared for marriage. Learn about the ways to handle that special kind of friendship between two persons of the opposite sex that may lead to love, courtship and marriage.
STOP daydreaming. Commit yourself to developing friendship before becoming lovers. These personal experiences can work for you. Each pillow contains straightforward information meshed with Experts concepts. I hope that those of you who seriously want to live into God's harmony will find acceptance, assurance and happiness towards a worthwhile relationship.

PILLOW 1: Accept and love yourself. Do not slim your chances to love and be love. Create a mental image of yourself which is capable of helping you make intelligent decisions. You are a special and a wonderful individual. Live with what you are able to change. If you don't, you'll feel inferior and end up hiding your insecurity beyond normal understanding.

PILLOW 2: Make wise decisions. I was once thought, "The whole world steps aside for the man who knows where he is going." A poor decision to wisely choose the person you'll spend your life with breads disaster. It is more tragic if you're not fully prepare to make a healthy decision. Remember, either a poor or a weak choice will lessen our chances for happiness and fulfilled relationship.

PILLOW 3: Predetermine your search. Yogi Berra said, "It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future." Can you trust your own feelings, be responsible for your action or control your life? Carefully study your present. Instead, don't count on your expectations, lover or dreams to rescue your future.

PILLOW 4: Educate your self. Learn about two people called husband and wife. Start in the right direction. Enter effective studies on relationships. Read widely. This can probably not marked the tide of divorce in your life but would prove very helpful. "The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet." -Aristotle

PILLOW 5: Sacrifice personal time. Hard work plus sacrifice result in SUCCESS. Incompatibility exists when lovers/couples are ignorant. People don't really want to go an extra mile to finally earn they must be awarded and often say, 'we are incompatible' they should sacrifice personal time to achieve a complete but healthy relationship. Woodrow Wilson said it the right way, "There is no higher religion than human service. To work for the common good is the greatest creed."

PILLOW 6: Handel every Situation. Every great human is a problem solver. See all difficulties in a relationship as a steeping stone to success. Get rid of this philosophy, "Our love will handle every situation that crosses in our way." Voltaire advises me once saying, "No problem can stand the assault of sustained thinking."

PILLOW 7: Reject Fear. The Bible says, "Perfect love cast way fear." The more you encourage fear, the poorer you feel about yourself. Fear does not have any special power unless you empower it by submitting to it. Take what Les Brown reflected, "Stop daydreaming and exist in a better life than a make-believe paradise."

PILLOW 8: Don't serve two Master. H. A. Hoof wrote, "Indecision is debilitating; it feeds upon itself; it is, one might almost say, habit-forming. Not only that, but it is contagious; it transmits itself to others." Choose the central point around which your life will rotate. I've absorbed the spiritual values of God not Satan. I've realized my value and purpose are spelled out far different than friends who exist in hypocritical relationship.

PILLOW 9: Take Criticism. Don't be mad and defensive. Love wholeheartedly. Criticism is a steeping stone for people who accept it gracefully and evaluate the criticism objectively.
"There is so much good in the worst of us, And so much bad in the best of us, That it ill behooves any of us, To say anything about the rest of us." -Anon.

PILLOW 10: Concentrate on the needs of others. It helps you forget about worry or anything which stand a chance to make you feel a failure. This pillow has been a great source of motivation in my entire life. I've learn to focus on other person's needs to reduce the tension of my appearance of how genuine people thinks of me. Timothy Bentley mused, "Whenever you're in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude." Allow your attitude to help people and save you out of trouble!
