When I think of people I like to have around me, I think of those who make me feel happy, positive and who bring out the best in me. That’s also one of the primary criteria I’m seeking out in a potential partner.
What does that mean … well we all have positive and negative traits in us. That’s not a news flash. However, what side we show to whom changes depending on how we feel, but more importantly, how THEY make us feel. Have you ever been around people who always seem to make you angry, push your buttons and make the crazy inside you emerge? I do! My parents do a lot of that. They have their moments when they seem to bring out some of my worst qualities but parents do that, don’t they? Parents we can’t choose and they will always be in our lives. How about those we CAN choose?
Bringing Out The Best In You
As I mentioned earlier, one quality I look for in a partner is if they bring out the best in me. I have a lot of great qualities, just like everyone else, I can be generous, happy, make jokes, laugh, work hard, compassionate, loving, nurturing, helping, bounce back very quickly, have a big heart and loyal. Those are the qualities I like to exhibit and live. I want a man who brings those things out in me because he is a good person with those qualities. This man would encourage and support me in my activities and life path.
No one is saying there won’t be challenging days, or days when he would inspire the crazy lady to emerge, but he would be good and smart enough to deal with it quickly and we can move on from it. What is my dark side … well, since you asked, I like attention from my partner and don’t like to feel like I’m competing with others (but as long as I feel secure in a relationship I’m not jealous at all), I could be a little bossy (but I do prefer a man to be a man in the relationship) and I have a bit of a red head temper (that dissipates just as quickly as it emerges). So that’s not so bad, right? LOL
Everyone has their good and bad sides, anyone who tells you otherwise is outright lying. Are you responsible for your own behavior? Absolutely YES! But, sometimes, just sometimes, those around you can help you move in one direction or another … so why not surround yourself with those who tend to move you to the positive direction and bring out the best in you? Just some food for thought …
