I Don’t Need You To Do Big Things For Me, I Just Want The Little Things

I Don’t Need You To Do Big Things For Me, I Just Want The Little Things

Love isn’t just about finding the right person and embarking on a beautiful star-crossed adventure. Love isn’t about fancy dates at snazzy restaurants or expensive honeymoons on private islands. Love isn’t just about eternal promises, blissful kisses, and endless nights of happiness. Sometimes, love is all about the little things.

All meaningful relationships are built on mutual empathy. It is not the big things that you do for me that matters, but those little moments of love, thoughtfulness, and affection that make a relationship fulfilling. You might shower me with diamond necklaces and luxury clothes, but if you forget to wish me on a happy birthday, chances are that the marriage is going downhill.

Whether it is sharing the last chocolate left in the fridge or preparing hot coffee when I need an instant recharge, it is these little acts of kindness that ultimately make my day.

It doesn’t matter if the restaurant is famous or not, your full mental presence is what makes me satisfied

            The strength of a relationship lies in the small ways we show our love every day. Whether it’s kissing my cheek before leaving for work, preparing a scented hot bath after a tiring day, or simply texting an ‘I love you’ when I’m all alone, it is the little things that make life and love beautiful.

            13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do

            13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do

            Mentally strong people have healthy habits. They manage their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in ways that set them up for success in life.

            Take a look at these 13 things that mentally strong people don’t do so that you too can become mentally stronger.

            1. They Don’t Waste Time Feeling Sorry for Themselves

            Mentally strong people don’t sit around feeling sorry about their circumstances or how others have treated them. Instead, they take responsibility for their role in life and understand that life isn’t always easy or fair.

            2. They Don’t Give Away Their Power

            They don’t allow others to control them, and they don’t give someone else power over them. They don’t say things like, “My boss makes me feel bad,” because they understand that they are in control over their own emotions and they have a choice in how they respond.

            3. They Don’t Shy Away from Change

            Mentally strong people don’t try to avoid change. Instead, they welcome positive change and are willing to be flexible. They understand that change is inevitable and believe in their abilities to adapt.

            4. They Don’t Waste Energy on Things They Can’t Control

            You won’t hear a mentally strong person complaining over lost luggage or traffic jams. Instead, they focus on what they can control in their lives. They recognize that sometimes, the only thing they can control is their attitude.

            5. They Don’t Worry About Pleasing Everyone

            Mentally strong people recognize that they don’t need to please everyone all the time. They’re not afraid to say no or speak up when necessary. They strive to be kind and fair, but can handle other people being upset if they didn’t make them happy.

            6. They Don’t Fear Taking Calculated Risks

            They don’t take reckless or foolish risks, but don’t mind taking calculated risks. Mentally strong people spend time weighing the risks and benefits before making a big decision, and they’re fully informed of the potential downsides before they take action.

            7. They Don’t Dwell on the Past

            Mentally strong people don’t waste time dwelling on the past and wishing things could be different. They acknowledge their past and can say what they’ve learned from it.

            However, they don’t constantly relive bad experiences or fantasize about the glory days. Instead, they live for the present and plan for the future.

            8. They Don’t Make the Same Mistakes Over and Over

            Mentally strong people accept responsibility for their behavior and learn from their past mistakes. As a result, they don’t keep repeating those mistakes over and over. Instead, they move on and make better decisions in the future.

            9. They Don’t Resent Other People’s Success

            Mentally strong people can appreciate and celebrate other people’s success in life. They don’t grow jealous or feel cheated when others surpass them. Instead, they recognize that success comes with hard work, and they are willing to work hard for their own chance at success.

            10. They Don’t Give Up After the First Failure

            Mentally strong people don’t view failure as a reason to give up. Instead, they use failure as an opportunity to grow and improve. They are willing to keep trying until they get it right.

            11. They Don’t Fear Alone Time

            Mentally strong people can tolerate being alone and they don’t fear silence. They aren’t afraid to be alone with their thoughts and they can use downtime to be productive.

            They enjoy their own company and aren’t dependent on others for companionship and entertainment all the time but instead can be happy alone.

            12. They Don’t Feel the World Owes Them Anything

            Mentally strong people don’t feel entitled to things in life. They weren’t born with a mentality that others would take care of them or that the world must give them something. Instead, they look for opportunities based on their own merits.

            13. They Don’t Expect Immediate Results

            Whether they are working on improving their health or getting a new business off the ground, mentally strong people don’t expect immediate results. Instead, they apply their skills and time to the best of their ability and understand that real change takes time.
