Actively loving yourself should be the basis of your relationships in your 20s. Don’t be afraid to say no to relationships that aren’t fulfilling your wants and needs. Spend time figuring out who you are and what you like and dislike before jumping into such a serious relationship. Let go of whatever fantasy you’ve conjured up in your head about the perfect significant other and experiment by stepping out of your comfort zone. Lastly, be gentle to and with yourself and your mistakes because this is the time to make them!
