14 Love Lessons For All Lovers During Valentine's Day

  1. 1. 14<br />LOVE LESSONS<br />Valentine’s Day<br />
  2. 2. Saint Valentine's Day, commonly shortened to Valentine's Day, is an annual commemoration held on February 14 celebrating love and affection between intimate companions. It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards. <br />
  3. 3. They say love is blind. And young love is the most blind of all, isn’t it? Most of what I’ve learned is common sense, but I’m going to repeat these common-sense love lessons here because it’s pretty clear that the world needs them, common-sense or no.<br />
  4. 4. Lesson 1 : First of all, love yourself first<br />To find true love, love yourself first. If you value and cherish yourself, you give yourself the greatest gift and will naturally attract others. If you don’t love yourself, forget about the word “LOVE”. This is the rule!<br />
  5. 5. Lesson 2 : Never Settle for Ambivalence<br />Your time on this earth is far too valuable to waste on a partner who isn’t certain he or she wants to be with you. You deserve to be wanted. You deserve someone whose dedication never falters. Never settle for less.<br />
  6. 6. Lesson 3 : Make Them Your Close Companions<br />Making hard choices, phasing out of your life overly critical or unkind people. If you only permit loving people into your personal bubble and make them your close companions, you will be surrounded by love.<br />
  7. 7. Lesson 4 : Relationships Should Fit Comfortably<br />Relationships should feel comfortable. Safe. Warm. Loving. Mutually beneficial. Peaceful. New relationships in particular should be easy, fun, and rewarding. If they’re not, why are you there to begin with? Choosing the right partner is the best choice.<br />
  8. 8. Lesson 5 : Design Your Own Love<br />Romance and love someone else the way you want to be romanced and loved. Kindness and consideration become like a garden in a relationship, where similar flowers grow together.<br />
  9. 9. Lesson 6 : Sex is not Love<br />Young people often confuse sex with love, but a bad relationship is still a bad relationship, sex or no. It’s wise to ask yourself what you would love about your partner if the physical attraction faded. After all, beauty and youth are fleeting, while the heart and mind endure.<br />
  10. 10. Lesson 7 : Emotional Need is not Love<br />But looking back, it’s pretty clear that we never loved each other, no matter how badly we needed each other. Real love – the sort of love worth saving – is more than just an emotional mish-mash of wants and desires, which brings me to my next point…<br />
  11. 11. Lesson 8 : Love Starts With Actions<br />Love is an emotion that should translate into action. Treat it this way, always, and it will not grow dim or gutter out.<br />
  12. 12. Lesson 9 : Worthwhile Relationships Inspire Happiness<br />Successful partnerships produce happiness. If you don’t enjoy being around your partner, you have a problem. I only wish this bit of sense were as common as it sounds.<br />
  13. 13. Lesson 10 : Changing Someone is a Bad Goal<br />If making your relationship work requires you to change your partner’s personality or behavior, consider finding someone who is a more natural fit. Conversely, if you sense that your partner’s aim is to change your personality or behavior, kindly point him or her toward someone who doesn’t require such ministrations.<br />
  14. 14. Lesson 11 : Always Add “Rich Content” To Your Actions<br />Your thoughts, moods, behaviors and words contribute to the tenor of a relationship. Be vigilant that what you are contributing adds “rich content” instead of “toxic waste.”<br />
  15. 15. Lesson 12 : Don’t Forget to Say “I love you” Everyday<br />Always tell your partner specific things you like about him or her and don’t forget to say “I love you” every day. This may seem obvious but reinforcement strengthens relationships.<br />
  16. 16. Lesson 13 : Cultivate A Love For Living. <br />If you enjoy each day and fill your life with interesting activities, you’ll be fun to be around-someone your partner wants to be with.<br />
  17. 17. Lesson 14 : The Date Never Ends <br />Always treat your relationship like you are still dating and the excitement, love, and commitment will continue. Be a “good date” and you will make a great partner.<br />
  18. 18. Love has no desire but to fulfill itself.  To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.  To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.  <br /> ~Kahlil Gibran<br />Happy Valentine’s Day<br />Sompong Yusoontorn<br />
