August 5: share my top three relationship rules

As with any rules there are always exceptions. These are things that I have found to be true. Just because I know they’re true does not make them easy to accept.

1. You can’t make someone forgive you
There comes a time in every person’s life when you will say or do something that will hurt another person. You may not have meant to cause anyone pain, but you did. You can apologize and try to make things right but there are some people who will never forgive and that is something you have to accept. You may never return to how things were before because that person cannot move past what you said or did. That is their right.

2. You can’t make someone love you.
You are a great person who is unique in personality and skills. You want the person you love to see that too and you try desperately to make them understand how awesome you are. If you are the only one fighting for something there is no battle to be won. Because someone doesn’t love you, it doesn’t mean that you’re not still a great person. You are. It means that you are not their priority.

3. You cannot use sex to make someone love you.
You may find yourself desperate for someone to love you and in order to convince them to love you in return you may repeatedly throw yourself at them. They will enthusiastically accept of course but if they don’t already love you, sex will not convince them. To some people sex is simply sex. In the end someone will get hurt and it won’t be them.

I did actually have more but I’ve made myself sad now and I forget what they were.
