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.
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 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.
