Relationship Advice from Yoda

Relationship Advice from Yoda

Yoda knows a lot about a lot of things.

A lot about relationships.

Yoda put it this way.

“Do your relationship. Or do not do your relationship. There is no try.”

You do you in your relationship.

Be attuned to your loved one.

Be your authentic self.

Allow them to be real with you.

Follow your heart.

Lead from and be lead by your heart.

Listen to your gut.

Your gut nudges you in the direction of enhancing your relationship.

Tackle the toxic.

It also tells you when to say "buh-bye."

Nurture your nature.

With a trusted partner, have the tough conversations.

Talk about vulnerability.

Just "get" them without trying to change them.

Ask for clarity to avoid misunderstanding each other.

Play like you did at the beginning.

Make proactive compromises.

Acknowledge the rough patches without blaming.

Make intentional and specific relationship goals.

"If anything's not working, we’ll work on it from kindness."

The best way to "do your relationship" is to truly listen.

There is no "trying to listen."

There is no trying period.

Of course not.
