Years of research and tests show that the make or break of a relationship comes down to this: Do they bring kindness and generosity; or contempt, criticism, and hostility? That’s it. It’s that simple. Kindness and generosity equals glue. Contempt, criticism, and hostility equals a crowbar. You can dissect a relationship as much as you want. This is where the road will always fork.
Be kind. And be generous with your heart. That’s the only road that leads to anything worth building.
