Affirmations for Living and Relationships

Updated on September 17, 2012

Know yourself, Love yourself, and Trust yourself

Memorable Sayings and Ideas from "My Cat Won't Bark! (A Relationship Epiphany)"

Life is a personal journey.

When we change, our circumstances change.

The only person you can control is yourself.

People change when they want to change.

You are responsible for your own happiness!

Your life is the result of the choices and decisions you have made.

If it’s a deal breaker, get out!

If it’s not a deal breaker, learn to live without!

Don’t expect to sit next to the moon unless you are a star!

It’s easier to maintain a fire than it is to reignite a spark.

You don’t negotiate for love and affection. These things are given freely.

You don’t manufacture chemistry. It’s either there or it’s not.

You are either growing together or growing apart.

There is no neutral; you are either nurturing or neglecting your relationship.

Communication is not an “Ask and it shall be given” proposition.

Don’t assume communication will lead to action.

The one rule in love is there are no rules!

If commitment meant forever, there would be no such thing as divorce.

A marriage based upon circumstances rather than love is likely to fail.

Staying together for the sake of staying together is not a recipe for happiness; it’s a design for building a prison.

It takes courage to look at the truth of a situation and make a change.

It takes patience and tolerance to accept people as they are.

Walking on eggshells can lead to having a nervous breakdown.

When we see things in black and white, we gain insight.

When we see things in gray, it causes us to delay.

It’s not where you meet; it’s whom you meet that counts.

Communication is always better than assumption.

If someone believes you are worth the effort, they will make the effort.

Never separate your mind from your heart when making relationship decisions.

Trusting someone does not mean you can’t ask questions.

Trusting someone means you believe they will give you honest answers to your questions!

Be yourself and let the chips fall where they may.

Know yourself, love yourself, and trust yourself.

Ultimately we are all looking for someone who naturally agrees with us, loves us, and accepts us as we are.

A life without dreams isn’t living; Only existing.

It’s been said men fall in love with their eyes and women fall in love with their ears. However, with age comes wisdom. Men learn all that glitters is not gold, and women learn actions speak louder than words.

There is no amount of communication or work that can overcome being with someone who does not want what you want.

The most important relationship you will ever have is the one with yourself.

It’s your life. Take the wheel!

The world may not owe you anything, but you owe yourself the world!

      Thanks for providing this link-- and your profound insight. I loved the one about men and women and what we fall in love with (so true). I've come to the point where I am forcing myself to look at actions and stop listening to sweet talk.

      And yes-- grab the wheel in your own life! Awesome tip! Thanks again, Kevin.

      Thanks tamron!

      Most of us have been guilty of having "unrealistic expectations" for (particular people) in our lives. Hopefully a lot of people can relate. :-)

      tamron, Thanks so much for your comment and the link. I will look into your suggestion. Presently I am promoting my book of which this hub is an excerpt. "My Cat Won't Bark! (A Relationship Epiphany). It is a relationship advice book on the one hand but on the other it asks the reader to do some introspective thinking to figure out who they are and what they want in a mate. Below is some additional information. I also provide details on my website Thanks again for stopping by and posting your comment!

      You have some great relationship advice! This is how I fell in my relationship "Staying together for the sake of staying together is not a recipe for happiness; it’s a design for building a prison." that hits home to me. The comment about egg shells I can relate too as well.

      You should get a job as a relationship or Image consultant you would probably to well at it.
