Have you ever thought about what is life all about? If you remember your childhood, you can remember how adamantly you acted, how mean you were sometimes and how insensitive you were! No regrets! We all go through that phase. Question is whether we come out of that? If we do, it means that we have learned something from life. While maintaining relationships, we always (and we should) learn something or the other. There are over 100 best motivational and inspirational quotes to live by and they shout to tell us something – learn from life!
“Life is about making an impact, not simply an income” – Kevin Kruse
What does that mean? Think if you have affected others’ lives, not only of your spouse. You might be a millionaire, but is your spouse happy with you? Are other people happy with you? Of course, you cannot please everybody, every time. But the meaning of this inspiration quote by Kevin Kruse is earning money is secondary, you should first have an influence on others’ lives. Influence in form of support, encouragement, compassion, helpfulness, cooperation, kindness, generosity! And you can show it in as well as out of your home, towards your family and also towards your colleagues, subordinates and friends. A good human can become a good spouse!
“I attribute my success to this – I never gave or took any excuse” – Florence Nightingale
The person finding excuses to run away from responsibilities can never grow in life! And such a person is not loved by her/his spouse. In your married life, there are many situations when you have to come forward and support your partner that you are there for her/him. But instead of that, if you hold back, you are sure to lose respect. So, keep in mind that if you want your partner’s love and respect, never run away from responsibilities.
“The mind is everything, what you think, you become” – Buddha
This is absolutely true. You won’t believe but a mind can create a tree or something similar! And think what is there around us. It is mere a reflection of what we “think”. While traveling with our friends, on a long road, you see a tiger at a distance and get scared, while your friend sees a deer at the same place, and is normal. And it can also happen that in fact, there is neither a tiger nor a deer on that place; it was only your mind that created an image! In life too, it happens. We think that our partner is a villain which may not be true. What your mind has thought, you will feel the same. So, think from all aspects; give the opposite party a fair justice, and your relationship will become much healthier.
