It took me such a long time and so many disappointments to figure this out so hear me out, maybe you’ll avoid some of those!

In a job, for example, you might have the following priorities in mind: a good salary, a career path, a healthy and friendly working environment and a fairly understanding boss. Now, it is obvious that this may not applicable all the time so here is when you sacrifice one or two of your priorities in the favor of others that may have high importance as well.

In a relationship, when choosing a partner, you also set certain priorities that you make up through time and experiences. Those priorities could be regarding looks, personality, goals, career objectives, family, etc. It is truly difficult to keep your priorities straight here because sometimes love can really make you bend and twist your own rules, not blind you, just make you more susceptive to changing what you believe in.
