A continuation of this card (http://www.vingle.net/posts/515226) here are four more questions to ask yourself to know if you're really ready for a serious relationship. “I have embraced values that will help me live with more integrity, honesty, compassion and enthusiasm.” ● It’s impossible to build a house without a solid foundation. Just like constructing a home, a relationship needs to be build on two people who are grounded in their own values and beliefs. Be confident in yourself, embrace the values that are important to you. Once you know who you are, you’ll find the person you’re meant to be with. “I have diagnosed and gotten real about the pain and problems in this relationship.” ● No person is perfect, and no relationship is perfect. There will be pain and there will be struggle. Being honest about this, and open to it will allow you to open your heart to a real, long lasting relationship. “I accept and acknowledge full ownership of my contribution to where this relationship is.” ● We all want to believe that we have done no wrong when a relationship fails. But accepting what you put into it that was both good AND bad will help make your next one even better. No one is perfect, and owning your mistakes makes you stronger, and capable of overcoming them. “I am committed to tapping into my core of consciousness.” ● Just like the first one, knowing who you are, being conscious of your core self, will allow your relationship to flourish. But this isn’t simply a passive understanding! You should actively commit to examining who you are and how you are growing and changing on a daily basis. Sometimes the changes will be positive, and sometimes not. Making this commitment will allow you to adjust your thinking and behavior to you are always true to yourself, and true to your relationship.
