Nothing is fool proof. I won’t say that because you haven’t had a great example that you will automatically succeed. I read a post where two brothers were raised in a house with an alcoholic dad. One grew to be an alcoholic while the other did not. When asked why they made the choice to or not to drink, they both referenced growing up with their father being an alcoholic. It is possible to not have a successful relationship because of examples you’ve had in your life, but you will always have all of the material to make it successful if you want.
Martin Luther King Jr. didn’t have an example of peaceful protests and equal rights prior to his launch, but he had an idea of what it should be. Just because you haven’t been exposed to a successful or perfect relationship, doesn’t mean that you don’t know how one should work. People are capable of far greater things than what is believed. Y’all may think I am going off topic, but to me this is greater than just a relationship. We are all capable of being better than our environment and successful in life in any aspect if we work hard to be such. We already have the tools within us and it is to our discretion how, when and where we use them. Success is defined by you and there is no reason we all can’t achieve it.
Go Make it Happen,
