Common sense is what you don’t need to read about to live by; they are not learned. They’re just simple natural keys for living. So this morning I’m going to be sharing with us few tips on how to match that relationship with common sense.
a. Practising courtesy in that relationship is common sense: Saying thank you to bae when he/she does the little acts of service for you is an act of common sense. Saying sorry to bae when you wronged him/her is an act of common sense. Taking permission before using somebody’s stuff, using the word “please” when making a request are all act of common sense that needs to be exercised.
Common sense should tell you that, you let your partner finish his/her words first before you say yours. It’s actually rude to interrupt people while talking.
Don’t wait until bae start complaining of your lack of manners coyly before you adjust yourself please. Like my counselor use to say, ‘common sense is a self problem and not a wisdom problem itself’
Practising courtesy in that relationship shows your individual sensibility and respect for one another.
b. Common sense is knowing when to talk and when to keep those mouths shut.
c. Nobody needs to tell you to express your love to bae from time to time, common sense should tell you that.
Ladies, hear this one, every time you go out with bae, bae always pop ups to be the one shouldering the outing expenses. Hey, common sense should tell you that once in a while you should offer to pay for the expenses too. That’s what being referred to as a helper is. There’s no rule that says the man has to be the one shouldering that responsibility all the time, okay?
That’s what common sense does. It tells you what to do without instructions!
Maybe one day, bae voiced her concern about you not always paying attention to her when you spend time together. That you’re ever tied to your phone. Common sense should tell you that when next you’re coming to see her, you put those phones in your pocket and spend quality time with her so as to avoid quarrel in the long run.
Let your common sense preserve you in that relationship please!
d. It’s common sense to not suspend your brain when you’re in love.
I’ve heard series of stories of how people abandon their brain and decide to go on the love journey with their hearts alone. That’s recipe for disaster o!
Never be foolishly in love with bae that you’re blind to the red flags in that relationship please.
You’re in a relationship with a man that slaps you left, right and centre over any little grievance. Yet, you’re still singing of his praises all about, when common sense should tell you that you both need to check out from that relationship for some serious counseling very fast.
e. Common sense should tell you never to wade off warning signs in that relationship. That’s God calling your attention to danger ahead but unfortunately we’re always blind to it.
Proverbs 11:9 (MSG)
The loose tongue of the godless spreads destruction; the common sense of the godly preserves them.
You’re in a relationship with a lady that can’t seem to control herself towards anything in trouser, even right beside you, she’s flirting. Yet, you’re so foolishly in love that you’re blind to her weakness, when common sense should tell you that you need to take a break from that relationship and assess the situation before you step into the wrong thing.
Don’t go on mental holiday at the time when your brain is supposed to be working perfectly please. That’s why God gave you brain so that you won’t come and be disturbing him for every little issue in that relationship. And that common sense will save you from a lot of errors if you learn to use it often.
These are just simple natural keys for living that you’re expected to grasp as you grow in life as common sense is a proof of maturity itself.
Lastly folks, please let it be known that you don’t have to put your mouth in every passing matter. Common sense should tell you that it’s not every conversation that’s worthy of your time, don’t be known as a chatterbox!
Proverbs 10:19 (MSG)
The more talk, the less truth; the wise measure their words.
Proverbs 17:28 (MSG)
Even dunces who keep quiet are thought to be wise; as long as they keep their mouths shut, they’re smart.
