There’s no rule book for how to have an incredible relationship. And that means that a lot of us (myself included) make tons of mistakes.
I’m turning 32 on October 5th. And as I look back on the last decade or so, I realize that I’ve done some things wrong. Which is why in this video I want to share with you 7 things I wish I knew in my 20s.

0:31 - #1: People change because of internal motivation.
2:01 - #2: Chemistry is a phase.
2:24 - #3: People who are fundamentally friends have the strongest relationships.
3:49 - #4: Duration is a bad measure of quality.
4:47 - #5: Conversation shouldn't have to change when he/she enters the room.
6:01 - #6: Never give up your friendships because of a relationship.
7:24 - #7: You need to show your work emotionally.

Good job on Charity Water, Charisma! Could you expand to include reservations in the USA or reserves in Canada? Our problem is that we are 'out of sight, out of mind' with our fellow Canadians and Americans. 20% of Indigenous Canadians can't get a clean glass of water, and on some reserves in Canada, the water is So Contaminated, people Cannot Even Bathe! Canada and the USA are First World countries, so we can't get charities to help us get clean water as, obviously, our respective countries could Afford to solve the problem themselves, if they were so motivated. The Canadian and American governments are Not motivated as there aren't enough of us to make a strong enough voting block! Canada and the USA are big, beautiful countries, but we have shoved the original people onto tiny, unsustainable plots of land that are either swampy or rocky ground that are useless to the settlers that put us here. In many places in Canada, our water was simply redirected from our reserves to the nearest city, such as Winnipeg, Manitoba. Canada has half the freshwater in the entire world, yet we can't get clean drinking water! When Canada directs money to our bands(tribes), they waste so much of it on their own burocracy, that only 42 cents on the dollar even makes it down the line to us, and then we are legally Forced to take the Lowest Bidder on every project, or forfeit the money back to the government. We Must take the lowest bidder, Even if the company has Cheated us in the Past!!! This is how we end up 'spending money' on projects for our people that are simply Set up to Fail! We need help. We have many generations of people who grew up with no drinking water, and no hope that this will ever change.

I never understood people who end friendships over relationships, I get that you want to spend more time with your other half, especially during the honeymoon phase, but I always make time for friends, no matter how busy I am 🤔

"You can stick wings on a caterpillar, it will never learn to fly" is probably the best advice i've heard and i wanted to share it. We can't change people no matter what. Change comes from within. Just like a caterpillar changing to a butterfly. It's a whole process.

Interesting to see one person's thought process to dating in the early years. I like how he matured from his earlier years. Great videos on this channel.

1. People only change due to intrinsic motivation - don't expect to be able to change your partner, accept their interests/habits/values 2. Chemistry is a phase - it cannot last forever 3. The best relationships are fundamentally friendships - see if your friends would be friends with your girlfriend 4. Duration is not a good indicator of relationship quality - bad relationships can last, don't aim for length - aim for making each other happy 5. How honest can you be with your partner? If you are saying things to your friends that you wouldn't say to her, this is a problem 6. Never give up friendships/hobbies for a relationship - careers and family are important but friends and hobbies are key to a happy life 7. Communication - explain why you feel certain things about the relationship, share the process behind your emotions

Everybody talks about hormones in conjunction with puberty and teen years, but the truth is that in your twenties, hormones are still very much a thing, even though they're no longer a new thing and they become much more predictable once puberty is over. At least that's what I find, being now in my early twenties.

Wow, the "show your emotional work" step honestly I think could solve so many of those classic "men vs women" misunderstandings that we joke about 😅 Great advice!

his #7 is absolutely true. We, human beings, often assume we know what the other person REALLY meant by their comment - all exacerbated by the differences between men and women. Jeff Foxworthy made a career of pointing that out. She said, "Do you want to go shopping with me?" He heard, "can I pull out your fingernails with pliers?" So of course he said "Oh hell no!"

Just dealt with a quite painful breakup. We were (and are) good friends, we were honest with each other, etc. But we had fundamentally different visions of how we wanted our life to turn out. She wanted kids, I did not, etc. Ultimately you cannot outrun such fundamental things, in my experience.

to your friend (and everyone who reads this) who told his GF he'd only marry her if she stops smoking. never give your significant other an ultimatum where its either the relationship or that person or thing in question (in this case smoking) to me, the relationship is dead as soon as this demand is made. you show the other person that you are willing to end everything unless the other person changes his/herself to the desires of the other in a forceful manner. how about a compromise instead? keep smoking if you want, know that i don't like it and only do it outside the house

For number 5, does that count the opposite way. So for example I have a friend, I talk about her a lot with my mom, who also talks to her (separately from me). But an issue we all ran into is I would tell my mom something and Mom would mention it in passing or a direct question to my friend. I would do the same, Mom would mention something to me and I'd bring it up or unfortunately get mad my friend didn't tell me. This typically ends with my friend getting frustrated she can't just tell people things. I don't keep any secrets, but at the moment it feels like anytime my friend confides in me , I can't talk to the one person I run to for advice. Like I would never withhold criticisms or anything I'd say about her from her (I haven't, in fact I've been too direct about that), but it feels like information she gives me has to be secret and I can't be open about the things she tells me. I don't really have a question about it, I just am not fully grasping the concept in the direction of someone else to me, because I'm honest but it feels like that honesty loses me trust?

#2 is what Jonathan Haidt would call "passionate love" versus "companionate love;" basically the former is as a strong quickly growing fire that once it burns out it never returns, and the latter are like vines that intertwine and connect over a period of time. (Check out his book, the Happiness Hypothesis for more info.) I learned that a few months ago, as he said in this video if you don't have companionate love (like a friendship undertone), your relatioship cannot survive.

if you really want to better the world stop sending water to places where people shouldnt be living. The world is overpopulated and we shouldnt fight nature with technology. we'll end up burning up and out all living things if we continue with this cheap slacktivism. Instead lets donate to the environment which will not only benefit a select few but all of us future present past, not to mention all other animals needed for a healthy balance in ecoyststems, plants, funghi ... pretty much everything.

6:39 - The realist thing I heard in this video, "I think that we IDEALISE 'Co-Dependents' in our movies and songs today". Too true! (And all this from a guy whose 32 but looks like he's my age - 21. 😂)

about the culturl shock you mentioned I felt it in my bones as an Italian in Australia. Apart from the cuisine... oh god I saw horrors, the experience confirmed my opinion on english speaking countries educations (not so good) and I was puzzled by the fact that english speakers do not use hands in communication, like never! WEe italians are famous for our hand gestures and in facts not moving your hands while chatting/talking/etc is very weird. So everyone was weird until they had to present sth (like in a video or in class): suddently they were moving hands with little to no sense in relation to what they were saying ending up looking goofy to me. Why take up all that space?? that's loud! Taking too much space while gesturing gets you looking like a seller, an upset predicator or someone that has no idea of what is saying but he's desperately trying to prove their point

5:29 We have no idea how many relationships there are that ARE maintaining with a secret, because they're still secret. But I do agree, you should tell them, simply because it's ethical and the Cheatee deserves better.

Don't give up relationships for friendships either. Mind you, I'm not talking about just starting a relationship and deciding not to take it further because your friends don't approve. That's different. I'm talking about leaving a spouse of several years because friends told you to. Soulmates trump best friends everytime or it isn't real love to begin with.

To be honest I feel like the last point also applies to literally EVERY romance movie I have ever seen😂 In every one of those movies there is a misunderstanding because they don't explain themselves (unless it involves infidelity) Also AMAZING video!!!!

Honest and interesting video. To me without a deep Emotional Connection between the man and the woman, you will not be friends after being intimate. It takes time and togetherness to become friends. It does take time and common experiences to understand a person's true self. #7 is interesting in how it is represented. I think what should be said is that in communication with women you have to understand it is Emotionally (Empathy) based. Look for the underlying emotional message, and if not apparent ask what she is feeling. Work on the meaning together before providing any solution, if you offer any at all. Being present and attuned to her emotions as a way to communication is what is important. Always take time in finding aspects of her state of mind (Emotions), be understand and allow her to arrive at what she is completely trying to say.

I don't think internal motivation is strong enough to change habits most of the time. You need to change the environment of people and literally condition them if you want any sort of change. Also happiness isn't the best measure of the quality of a relationship either, because you should be happy without them as well. This is a technicallity, but I would say a better measure is relationship satisfaction.
