Relationships the do’s and dont’s

Hey all, 

It’s your girl, Shannon! 

Disclaimer- This post is all about relationships what are in the early stages and the honey moon period.

I did a post this week on friendships the do’s and don’ts. 

The link is here Friendships the do’s and don’ts… 

Please check it out! 

I wanted to do this post about relationships as this is a much-needed post as when I was in a relationship, I wish I could have looked back at one of these posts. So here goes! 

The do’s of a good relationship. 

  1. Be supportive and always ask for consent.
  2. Be compassionate. 
  3. Communicate with each other is a very important thing to do if you are in a relationship. 
  4. Honestly is the best policy. 
  5. Give each other the space you both need. 
  6. Help them achieve their goals and dreams they have. 
  7. Build relationships with your partner family and friends. 
  8. Help them learn. 
  9. Tell them you love them every day as life is too short. 
  10. Meet them half way. 

What not to do to your relationship! 

  1. Don’t hold their past against them. 
  2. Don’t forget important dates such as anniversary or their birthday. 
  3. Don’t lie. 
  4. Don’t break each other trust. 
  5. Don’t hurt their feelings by saying something stupid what will hurt your boyfriend/girlfriend feelings. 
  6. Don’t talk about your exes.
  7. Don’t make fun of your boyfriends/girlfriends hobbies. 
  8. Don’t belittle them. 
  9. Don’t put them down once you have your relationship. 
  10. Don’t pressure them into anything what they aren’t comfortable with.

I shall love you and leave you. I loved writing these posts. 

Just so you know, it’s okay not to be okay you know, even the happiest person in the universe has their bad days. You can get through this dark hole. I believe in you. 

You are loved. You are worth the fight. You are more than your illnesses, you can fight this I believe in you. You are flawless. You are fabulous. You aren’t alone. You are amazing and I’m proud of you all. 

You can beat these thoughts. I believe in you. I will always be there for you even if it’s on the internet or email or even in person one day.  You are loved. You are needed in this world because you are YOU. You are badass for battling mental illness daily. I care about every single one of you. You are more than enough. You don’t need to please anyone else. God Bless x

  1. Good post! Some points I definitely agree with, some not so much. As I’m married now, a lot of these points are not so important such as the not talking about exs’s, I truly feel if you’re in a long committed relationship or marriage, the mention of ex’s really won’t be an issue, I also don’t think it’s a huge deal breaker to forget anniversary’s, especially if you’ve been together so so many years. A few spelling mistakes in the post too but other than that I’m sure some people will find it helpful 💗💗 you should ask your readers what points they find helpful and what they would have maybe added in there too 😘
