We live in the age of depression, anxiety, and frustration. I have no person in my family who is truly happy, nor a friend. My friends and I are young and still a work in progress, but even so, something is missing. We never seem to get enough. For a while, I used to be happy with my life. Then I met people. In my shell, I saw only the beauty of life: I was healthy, and I had enough money to take care of myself. I was alone, though, but I didn't care.
The Fitness Industry has shown fit people with a six-pack in commercials. We associated fitness with people with a six-pack, and if we don't have it, we're not fit. Having a six-pack is not easy, because you need to pay close attention to what you consume and how much. It is easy when you're living alone and isolated.
I was always a nice guy with people around me, including girls and women. It was in my character to try to please people because of low self-esteem and the need for validation. It all goes down to my past, but that is another story. I learned through trial and error that I need to change my attitude. The truth is, I am Iron Man. I am joking (Iron Man reference). The truth is, nice guys are not that nice. Nice guys have expectations; they are needy. Nice guys give to receive and keep count of everything they do. Their self-identity and self-respect depend on others' opinions and validations. Nice guys want to please with the hope that people around will appreciate them.
I can't say I've been in a relationship for a long time like other people, but I can say I've never been happier in a relationship. Frankly, I only had one serious relationship in the past, but I was a teen back then. I took a break from dating for five years to focus on my studies and career, and I was worth it. Now, it doesn't matter for how long we have been dating, or how we found each other. The focus of this article is to let you know what I've learned from my experience and others. Of course, there are other essential things in a relationship, but this one is the most important. If you can accomplish this, you'll be happy forever.
