In the ideal world, a happily-ever-after is the natural outcome of a relationship. But unfortunately, we don’t live in an ideal world. In our world, things go wrong, bad things happen to good people, and the path to great relationship is often slippery. So, did you slip on that path and got caught up in an unwanted relationship? Maybe you never wanted to do that, but nevertheless it happened. And your partner fount out.
Remember that famous book, Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus? Even if you haven’t read the book, you get the drift, right? It seems that men and women live in two different planets which means that there naturally exists a world of differences between them. However, when we talk about coexisting in a relationship, we got to make things work. And that means understanding each other, celebrating the similarities, and appreciating the differences.
Do you ever feel that after a few years down the line, your relationship with your partner isn’t that exciting anymore?
Unfortunately, it is very common. But isn’t that natural? I mean, even a roller coaster ride wouldn’t feel the same if you rode it every day, right? However, if you ask me, I think that what’s more important in a long-term solid relationship, more than all the excitement and thrills, is the fact that you love each other’s company, even if it means just watching the TV together. A sudden gush of the adrenaline is not equal to love, which I think, is deeper and has the power to withstand many difficult situations. However, being in love and making a relationship count need solid work. Here are a few things that can help:
Love, at times, is an all-engulfing passion and often, one of the first things it consumes is our identity. Although it is not something that we consciously do, sometimes we invest so much into a relationship that we forget the most important thing—being our natural self.
I visited countless websites including YouTube, and was impressed by the sea of information available on the topic. Days, weeks, and months passed, and then I had an idea. Why not provide people with information through blogging and vblogging?
I appreciated every happy moment that we had. I did not know how long it was going to last. I did not know when I would get into one of my moods. Just when you think everything was falling into place. We briefly separated. The short time he was gone I was lucid enough to know that, I wanted to make it work. I love this man, even through this time of turmoil. I wanted to save my relationship.
You have to learn to teach yourself something that I call common sense love. What does that mean? Making sure you are alert and not naïve or unrealistic. We are humans who are prone to error. We make mistakes and at times we are repeat offenders with our mistakes. Teaching yourself to change your though process is difficulty but that is ultimately what I want you to do, change your way of thinking.
