Lesson 5: Taking things for granted

No one owes you their heart and love.  No one.  You can’t remind them enough of how much they mean to you.  You are not better than them, or anyone for that matter.  To think you are better than anyone automatically makes you worse.  It was never about who is better for who or what changes you can make to their life.  If you think you are better than someone, you have already proven you are not.  

You can be better without thinking you are better.  Have you ever thought that you were the best thing ever to happen to someone?  You look at their past and think, “Oh my aren’t they lucky I came into their life,” or “I am clearly an improvement over everything I can see in their past.”  Guess what.  You might have been, but that train of thought just demonstrated that all you are is different, not better.  

Just because someone tells you that you are the best thing that ever happened to them doesn’t mean that you don’t have to continue to prove it.  Continue being the best thing that ever happened to them.  Just because you are the best thing in their life today, doesn’t mean that will be the case tomorrow.  Like most things in life, it is an ongoing, never-ending process.  

You have to continually show that you are the person they love.  The person they want to be with.  The person that makes them feel like there is nothing in the world that is more special than the love that you share.  You have to be all those things every day.  Never let it get to your head.  You are allowed to be comfortable, but try to avoid getting complacent.  Things are continually changing and you have to constantly adapt.
