Ratio for a happy relationship:
Sitting in my interpersonal relationships psych class and they claim there’s a key ratio in happy relationships: 5 to 1.
It’s no secret that people tend to weigh the bad more than the good. For example: Losing $100 causes more unhappiness than the happiness you gain from finding $100. And thus, for ONE bad thing you say or do, it takes FIVE good things to make up for it.
Makes sense, I think, but who comes up with these numbers…? How?
Lately, it’s the kind of tired that sleep can’t fix.
You know those people who have all this baggage from previous relationships? Insecurity, trust issues, etc. I wonder if they’re fucked up for good or if there’s any hope for redemption. It would suck to lose someone good because of something another person did.
How can girls take SOOO many pictures of themselves? So. Awkward. The irrelevant captions are really the cherry on top. Oh you hate this 90 degree weather or you hate studying? The solution is obviously to take a picture of yourself. Okay.
The solution to every relational problem: Put yourself in the other’s shoes.
In church they always used to say act as if you KNOW God sees everything. Something like that.
Well, even if you know the other person won’t know or see, you should always always think to yourself “what if they did?” You should always always think to yourself “how would EYE feel if I saw he/she saying and doing these things?”
This is common sense, yes, but we all fail to apply it.
