Love and Relationships: Let’s Put Some Emphasis On “Green Flags”, Too! (Plus, Blog Shout Out!)

Relationships are at most times not easy. We find ourselves ranting and raving and venting about the things that frustrate us most about our relationships more times than most. On the flip side, some of us cannot stop gushing about all the good things that we discover in our relationship and how we cannot get […]

There’s Green Flags, Too. — Write, Live and Love

When it comes to relationships, we tend to place our focus way too much on the “red flags.” While it is essential to know and understand a potential partner’s negative traits, it’s even more necessary to look at their excellent qualities.

Before my husband and I got married, I went into the relationship looking for red flags.

“There has to be something wrong with him!”. I remember thinking that after date number four. I needed to know what I was getting myself into before getting too involved. My focus was obviously not in the right place.

Looking back at the beginning of our relationship, I wish I would’ve focused more on his positive traits. He was, and still is, a great guy. Although he does have some habits that annoy the absolute crap out of me (I’m 1000000000% sure he would say the same about me), I’ve grown to express how I feel about them verbally. We both are nowhere near perfect, but are growing and learning daily.


Blog shout out!!!

“Write, Live, and Love” is a blog that I’ve been following for a short time, but this blog one to check out. Her blog posts are engaging, well-written, and relatable. What drew me to “Write, Live, and Love” was two reasons: one, she’s open and honest in her writing. Two, her blog has variety. She blogs on topics such as relationships, career, and self-care. Take a minute, or five, to go over to her blog and show some love!!

  1. Love this! Are used to be reluctant to share so much about my husband. I did not want to seem like I was bragging about having a good Husband. Then I realize so many people were talking down on men let me uplift my man.

      • In my blog I often talk about my husband we have a long relationship and part of that relationship is us teasing each other. People who know us call us “the love birds” or “two peas in a pod”. but they also laugh at how we rib each other. In a blog people dont know what my relationship is. If I talk about him it is because he annoyed me or did something that made me laugh… its not the only thing going on in our relationship tho.
