What makes a relationship great and do you have the attitude to really create a great one in your life with another??
NE: attitudes 4,5,6,7 are extracts from "The Four Agreements" by author Don Miguel Ruiz... recommended reading
speak and act the truth at all times no matter what... for it is better to be judged on honesty and make a mistake than to speak with lies to hide them.
trust yourself to deal with whatever and whoever comes your way.
respect yourself and treat others with respect.
Be impeccable with your word

Don't take anything personally
nothing others do is because of you. What others do or say is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and action of others, you wont be the victim of needless suffering.
Don't make assumptions
find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
Always do your best
your best is going to change from moment to moment, it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best and avoid self judgement, self abuse and regret.
