Habits are regular tendencies or practices expressed by someone. Often times, these habits are acquired over time and hard to give up. Our habits reflect who we are, because we are what we do repeatedly. They are unconscious patterns that determine the outcome of our lives.
If there is anything you must not overlook #BeforeYouLeadYourWayToTheAltar, it is the habits of the person you want to be with. I was discussing with a friend one day and she told me about this guy who had proposed to her. She was still contemplating whether to say yes or no to him. Her problem was with his habits. She complained that he liked drinking, smoking and staying out late. And on her own part, such things irritate her.
One other friend told me his issue with his girlfriend is the fact that she nags a lot. There is nothing anyone does that is good to her. She would always criticise and find something negative to say about almost anything. Even his dreams were watered down by her critical spirit. It was this attitude that had deterred him from proposing to her.
Habits are the cords of a person’s character. And character is what shapes a person’s destiny. When considering a person for marriage, look at their positive and negative habits. Habits can give you a picture of the direction their life would go. And if you think that’s a future you would like to be part of, then go ahead. Also, if there are habits you would accommodate in a person, make sure they are things you can live with for the rest of your life. Never go into marriage hoping they’ll change. Because most of the time, that never happens.
You are the next big thing. Make it happen!
