Choose Your Mate Carefully

choose

Be cautious in your choice of companion. The person you choose to settle down with will have a significant effect on your life – physically, spiritually, and emotionally.

It’s best to align yourself with people demonstrating qualities you would like to develop in your life versus characteristics that raise concern. You must also exemplify the traits you desire in a mate if you expect to have a fulfilling relationship.

It takes time to get to know someone, and most often, you meet their representative first. After peeling back the layers, you sometimes discover that your selection wasn’t all that you expected.

Consider the following:

  • If an irresponsible parent blames someone else for their lack of responsibility, this is not someone you rush to have a child by.
  • Someone who mismanages money should raise a concern with your financial stability.
  • Two people in a relationship practicing different religions must identify how this will affect their household and their future.
  • Someone with an abusive past or addiction may require special care and support.
  • Someone that can’t maintain employment may create more pressure for you in the long run.
  • Someone with a selfish perspective may have difficulty respecting your opinions and belief. Remember, respect comes from mutual regard and appreciation for one another, not by forced obedience.

Your well being should be the primary goal when choosing a mate. People can change, but it would be wise on your part to assess if you are willing to take that risk.

Sex

Sex is often undervalued because it comes easily and frequently. Whether one has sex for money or pure pleasure, this form of exploitation treats sex as an isolated physical act rather than an act of commitment to another. It erodes a person’s ability to love and often degrades others by turning them into physical objects. When you choose to have uncommitted sex, you confuse and tear down the climate of respect, trust, and credibility that is necessary to develop a healthy relationship.

We live in a world filled with suggestions to commit immorality. However, sexual immorality threatens family life, leaving spouses devastated, children scarred, and partners themselves unable to build healthy relationships. Even if one escapes sexually transmitted diseases and unplanned pregnancies, someone always ends up getting hurt as a result. The mark of a real man and woman is self-control.

Trust Intuition

Intuition is one of the greatest and unexplainable gifts you have.

You can choose to ignore it or understand that a spirit works through you, often in mysterious ways, but always to your benefit in the long run.

There are four levels of the human experience that intuition feeds off of: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.

It comes as no surprise that your intuitive mind has access to an infinite supply of information that is continually being processed.

While intuition sometimes offers a better solution than logic or reason, we are apprehensive about following our inner guide because we fear the end result.

Learning to trust and act upon your intuition is a function of trusting yourself and moving forward in the right direction.
