I've crossed the great divide between being a person in a relationship to a person seeking for one. I feel like there is a secret code that is only revealed to us after we become single. It's pretty simple really and if everyone actually paid attention to it there would be far fewer splits. Unfortunately we don't bother until it's too late.
PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER! What do they need? Are they getting it? Can you provide it? Are you listening? Do you even care?
Over and over I've heard the same thing, "This time I want us to remember that we as a couple are more important than the day-to-day things." Why is that so hard and why do we only find it important when it's too late?
Nothing is more important than the bond between two people.
Yes, children are important. Yes, jobs and making a living are important. But the most important thing is that connection to the person you want to spend your life with. The person you first chose. And if you did it right your head didn't choose them, your heart did and it's far wiser. That bond will carry you through anything that life throws at you, cherish it.
Quote for the Day -
Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more.
Peace to you and yours from me and mine.
