Getting into a relationship is a much bigger deal than people make it out to be.  It can end in either one of two ways: breaking up or marriage!   When you put it that way and look at the bigger picture, you should make sure you’re certain about someone before you get into a relationship with them.  Here are four things to ask yourself before dating someone!

  • “Am I ready for a relationship?” First and foremost, you need to put yourself first.  Although you might like the idea of him, make sure YOU are ready to make the commitment.  You need to be sure you’re over any past relationships and are ready to date again.
  • “Does he have everything I’m looking for?” We have to set our standards, ladies!  Sometimes it even helps to write down a list of all the things you look for in someone.  Maybe it’s humor, manners, kindness, or honesty.  The list can go on and on.  Then, go from there!
  • “Are there any red flags?” These are SO important to pick out before you get into a relationship with someone.  If there’s an automatic red flag at any point, you should definitely look further into it!  Whatever it may be true or not, don’t make excuses for it unless you ask them about it first.
  • “Are you both on the same page?” Making sure you have the same morals and values is also an extremely important factor to put into play. Although opposites can attract, most times two people with similar mindsets work out a little better!

I hope this helps you next time you’re unsure about getting into a relationship! 🙂

Love, Chelsea

3 Times It’s Okay to Give Up

You always hear that giving up is never an option.  Every time you hear those two words, they automatically give off a negative connotation.  You’re always told to “never give up,” and most of the time I agree.   But in certain cases, giving up can be considered a good thing!

  1. When it comes to standards, we should give up trying to meet everyone’s expectations. Chelsea Crockett - Giving Up We’re not perfect people and we’ll never be!  Once you admit that to yourself and know you can never be what everyone wants you to be, you’ll be much happier at the end of the day.
  2. Give up complaining and a negative mindset.  Constant complaining weighs down not only yourself but those around you.  How can you be in a good mood when all you’re doing is pointing out the negatives?
  3. Give up the past.  If you can’t give up the past, then you can’t move forward.  Letting go of any mistakes or regrets that can’t be changed is healthy!  There’s no need to worry about things that are over and done with when you could be focusing on improving yourself for the future!

What are you going to give up?  Maybe the idea of perfection?  Or any negativity you’re holding onto?  If so, I urge you to do so! 🙂
