ACCEPT YOUR FLAWS IN GOOD FATE

When your husband/ boyfriend/ wife/ girlfriend points out a flaw or weakness in you, your first reaction/response should be to listen and learn. Don’t be like: “What about you? Are you better than me? Are you not worse? Look who’s talking, my friend go and sit down, etc”. Be humble about certain things in life. When someone tries to correct you about your faults, it’s not an opportunity for you to poke fun at them or remind them about their own shortcomings. Just listen, thank them, and move on.

STOP GETTING DEFENSIVE ALL THE TIME!
Learn to choose your battle. Most people are too argumentative and dramatic, they prefer to fight instead of letting go. The decision is yours anyway. You know, there are times when our loved ones say things that are totally not true about us, sad but true. It’s alright when that happens!! You get to pick and sort through it. Sincerely examine yourself and see what part you need to work on. You should view your partner’s words as sandpaper buffing you into becoming a better person, not a bitter man/woman. Believe me, there are times when our loved ones have the best intentions but say it the “wrongest” ways. Put yourself in their shoes, how would you like to be treated? When you are trying all you can… No one is perfect here, me self I’m Captain Defensive! But slowing I’m taking a U-turn. Let’s all work on ourselves. In conclusion: Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but whoever hates correction is stupid. Prov. 12:1 (NIV)
