The Problems With Having An Open Mind In A Relationship
~ By Orikinla Osinachi
Most of the words of advice others give you in relationships are often clichés and they are sometimes not really useful to you, because the circumstances in our personal relationships are not the same in most cases no matter how the self-appointed expert counselors try to sound like they know the answers to your problems.
Anyone who has not been there before cannot know where you are coming from and where you are even coming from is different from where he or she is coming from, because Nigeria is not America and what happens in New York has different consequences from what happens in Lagos.
When you have a problem in your relationship, mind who you are telling the problem and surrounding yourself with gossips and busybodies will only worsen the problem.
The best thing is be cautious all the way and instead of listening to many people, listen to your conscience and only accept what will give you the two most important things in every relationship, SECURITY and HAPPINESS.
“The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.”
― Terry Pratchett, author of THE TRUTH.
