If you are a student and you are in love or in a romantic relationship, as if you are in cloud nine and nothing matters except that special someone of yours. Your education is the one that gets mostly affected or it’s the other way around, your love one is taken for granted because you’re too focused on your studies and you don’t give time for love.
Thinking wisely with a heart is the best solution so that neither love nor your education will suffer. If you are starting your college life, it would be good to do some planning. Yes, planning! In life, if you plan ahead of time you get better results. It’s about keeping all in balance. You don’t need to choose between love and study because you can balance them. Love should not be an obstacle to your studies and your studies should not be an obstacle to your love life. How? Well, here are some simple tips that you can do to make things in its proper places:
1. Is it worth the trouble?:
This is the first question you must answer when balancing relationships and school. Studies are stressful and so are relationships. So, if it is not a serious one, the better option is to flee from the relationship.
You need to coach yourself in self-discipline when balancing relationships and school. Daydreams can be quite vicious enemies when you are preparing for your next day’s exams.
3. Combined studies:
One tip to manage relationship and studies is to spend time in the library with him/her. Yes! A combined study with that special person means you will get your work done while spending some extra time with him/her.
4. Mutual Agreement
You alone cannot balance love and study. Your partner should agree with you on your plan to schedule everything so that you both will finish your studies. This is the best for both of you anyway. If you both graduate, you will have more opportunities in life and a better chance to be prosperous, and then love will be in the air. If one doesn’t agree, that is a sign that your present partner is not capable of understanding and giving importance to your goals in life and future. So, you better think twice.
