Emotional Stability

You have heard of emotional baggage; I have heard of emotional baggage, and every Jane and John Doe on the street know what emotional baggage is. There is no secret there. We all cringe and make a face when we hear the term, especially when it is directed at us. Don’t worry; you have baggage and so do I, and there is absolutely no problem with having baggage. Having personal or emotional baggage is not a problem, so long as you don’t bring it with you into your relationship and make it your partner’s problem. Your emotional baggage—emotional issues—that you amassed when you were single—is your mess and not your partner’s. These problems are totally your responsibility and yours to deal with, and they will remain yours for the duration of the relationship. Whether you have Mommy Issues, or Daddy Issues, or Old-Flame Issues, or whatever issues you have that you have yet to resolve, keep them to yourself—out of and away from the relationship.
