Relationships are like glasses, sometimes it better to leave them broken than getting hurt trying to mend it.
At a given time in our lives, we need a form of relationship, be it a working relationship, marriage relationship, family and the rest simply because it comes with it own emotional fulfillment.
Relationships are part of the things in life we must carry and handle with extra- carefulness because these things are fragile and once broken, it is never easy to put back together and it could be disastrous if not well manage
Here are things you should guide in other not to be heartbroken or disappointed
1. *Your Name*:
Your name is very important and fragile. There are names that stinks in the ears of people simply because, those who bear those names spoilt the name. The way to handle your name with care is to be careful of your doings. Your actions can rubbish your name. A good name can open doors for you & for your children and generations after you.
Carry your name with carefulness. It is a huge asset. Here is one of the quotes written by Shakespeare:
‘Whoever steals my purse steals trash; ’tis something, nothing;
‘Twas mine, ’tis his, and has been slave to thousands;
But he that filches from me my good name, my enviable reputation
Robs me of that which does not enrich him, But makes me poor indeed’.
2: *Your heart*:
Many hearts are broken, shattered, wounded and bitter today. One of the factors responsible for this is because many of these hearts’ owners were careless with their hearts. You can guard your heart from being broken and bitter. Run away from people, and things that are bent on breaking your heart. Carry your heart like a crate of eggs. You need a whole heart before you can be said to be fully whole!
3: *Your purpose*:
Your purpose is your destiny. If you don’t handle it with utmost care, it can slip off your hands and gaze and get broken. So many things can come like pressure on this crate of egg of purpose. Discouragement, lack of fund, anxieties, etc. These are things that may want to come like pressure on your purpose to break it. Don’t allow them! Carry it with care. Carry your purpose away from people and things that may want to put pressure on it and break it.
4: *Your health*:
You have only this body as a vehicle that will carry you through your journey of destiny in this life. Handle your health with care. No matter how big your vision is, once you are dead, nobody can really run the vision like you! Fight for your health. Avoid things that can destroy your health. Wealth is useless when your health becomes useless. Don’t kill yourself before your time. Do your best to stay alive. We still need You here on earth .
Don’t use your FORK, KNIFE, GLASS and your SPOON to dig your grave. Watch what you EAT and DRINK. Don’t eat anything because it is edible and don’t drink anything because it is appetizing. Always pray for divine immunization against sickness and diseases.
5: *Your Marriage*:
SO MANY PEOPLE HANDLE THEIR MARRIAGE LIKE A CARTON OF INDOMIE NODDLE. Your marriage is fragile. Handle it like a crate of egg. It must not break! A broken marriage is not easily put back together, because, when a marriage breaks, many things get broken with it. But Remember it takes two to tango, Husband and wife must always carry their marriage like an egg. It must not break!
6: *Your words*:
Your worth is attached to your words. Be careful with words. Once broken, you can’t gather them up again. Many people are careless with their words. They speak violently. They make empty promises and break them. Some say things they later wish they never said. Guard your words. Be careful with your diction.
7: *Your eternity*:
Those who are running up and down to fulfill destiny here on Earth without thinking of their eternity do not belong here! The matter of eternity is not something you should handle with levity. Think about where you will spend eternity. You will die one day. I will also die one day. All that we are and have in this world are vanity upon vanity.
Take the matter of your end very serious. Stop living carelessly as if you have extra life. Don’t live for the pleasure of this world. Have the hereafter in mind in all that you do. Grace is available.
