  1. It certainly helps that the person you're in a relationship with is also a friend, genuinely someone you want to be around and walk through life with. Lovely post!

  2. This post was honestly the perfect reminder for me to get my head on straight. Due to the lack of good relationships I have had in the past, I realised over time I have become less communicative, more reactive, and just expect things to just fall into place for me with little effort. Now, that I have been in an amazing relationship for the past 3 years, I have been getting a lot better but at times I still fall off and need a little reminder. I hate when I start to see old bad habits come up in my new relationship because he does not deserve it. This post helped a lot, thanks for sharing!
