I have heard so many promises of forever and “I will love you, always” lines that never emerged in the end. Too many relationships have past before I landed in my engagement with my fiancee and of all those relationships, I have noticed that it was not always the guy who was at fault. Most of the time it was ME.
I am not perfect. I have my tantrums and my irrational, illogical arguments and moods. They have endured my childishness, but all have their limits and I have crossed each of theirs, sometimes abruptly, sometimes gradually. In the end I have hurt them, one way or another. I am not proud to admit those silly mistakes, though I have to say they have taught me how to be more mature, not only with romantic relationships, but life in general.
We should learn from our mistakes. This is for sure. If I did not understand why my childish acts and very unpredictable moods give pain to others, I will be shattered because there is no way a man will ever stick with me. If not for a bit of maturity, I will not be able to control my jealousy and open myself emotionally — I will not be able to be in a stable relationship. And that will lead to self destruction and regret.
So girls, let’s learn from relationships. They are not mind games, nor a way to pass time. They should be regarded with high caution, and yes, a bit of maturity.
