We all have been in relationships where we feel like a Yo-yo. Don’t be a Yo-yo when it comes to your LOVE life. Let your yes be yes and your no be no. Don’t make a promise you can’t keep. Have integrity! Following through on our promises is a hallmark of Trustworthiness. We can all remember a time in our young lives when our parents, our siblings, or friends promised something they could not keep. So why would we want to do that to someone we are wanting to have a relationship with? Don’t be a Yo-yo!
Being prepared, it will keep you from being a yo-yo
How are you getting prepared for your spouse? When we are getting ready for Passover we have to prepare the house and remove all of the leaven. We need to remove the leaven out of our lives too, so a spouse can move in. Are you preparing your heart and home? I had two closets in my home in Albuquerque, I cleaned one out and made space for a husband to move in. Now it took some time for that to happen, but Yah was doing His work in my life and heart.
How are you making your relationship a set apart relationship? What boundaries are you setting up? It is best to set those boundaries up once you say you are entering into a committed relationship.
Some boundaries to think about:
- How far will you go in kissing & caressing?
- What about a curfew?
- Will you be alone with someone?
- What about having that person stay in your home overnight? Even if they are in a separate room.
- Will you send pictures to one another? What will the limits be on those pictures?
