angyjaxon:  Be good to those who are good to you and always marry a man who loves you a little more.

“Do unto others as you would have done unto you”

Then my mom’s words I always remember “don’t cry over a man that doesn’t cry over you”

My mom always stressed the importance of compromise and willingness to learn about the other person’s interests! For example, she is NOT into politics at all, but my dad really is…so every morning, she listens to his favorite political talk shows on the radio while she is on her way to work  🙂

Love is a journey, and it takes a little work every now and then!

Everything happens for a reason. This has gotten me through many things.  And I’ve never questioned why me when I really understood what it meant.

Forgiveness and letting go is as much for the forgiver as the forgivee, and you need to forgive, even if the forgivee doesn’t ask for it or want it.  It’s about letting go of something toxic in your own life.  Holding on to a grudge or anger destroys you, not the other person…..

The Golden Rule

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.  (that one belongs to Eleanor Roosevelt)

My mom always said ‘if in doubt don’t!’, and I live by it. Got me out of a few sticky situations in the past.

Also – give a man a reason to cheat?  Oh goodness, that is some crazy 1950s bs…

“Go with your first gut feeling.” 

My Dad’s family from Oklahoma has some very proud Cherokee blood and they always lived by their famous gut feelings. My Dad gets them and I do too. I’ve only gone against my gut feelings a few times and I’ve paid the price….

angyjaxon:  not trying to knock your grandma at all, and I know times were way different back then. I’m just glad things are different now!! My husband cooks AND cleans the kitchen, woot woot. I do really like the sentiment of striving to be the best version of yourself for your partner.

Soladylike:  No one ever gave me this advice but I discovered it on my own and agree 100% re “Marry a man who loves you a little bit more.” DH and I love equally now but I always chose men who tried hard to initially worked for it and I am so in love and so grateful I did. My sis always chose those she liked/loved more and she has really suffered because of it.

But my go to advice is: “Always assume positive intent.” It has saved many relationships, prevented paranoia and has helped me advance professionally!!
