You meet someone. You start to like them. You go on a few dates and before you know it, you start to fall in love with them, one day at a time. It’s all pretty great in the beginning. You talk all the time, you can’t keep your hands off each other and every day with them is filled with exciting new possibilities. One year passes and somehow, all the excitement and all the emotions you felt at the start have started to fade away and you just can’t seem to understand why.
The realities of life have started to settle in and you realize that you were never even prepared for them. So, before you enter into a relationship, before you make this one person the center of the entire universe and before you allow your heart to rule all of your decisions, make sure that you always keep in mind these essential truths:
Everything in life happens for a reason
Every single day, many new and diverse people enter our lives. And trust me, none of them are here by accident. Each and every person we meet has a unique purpose in our life. Some are here to teach us a valuable life lesson, some are here to help us discover a talent in us that we never knew, and some are here to make our lives better by just existing in it.
So, view all your relationships as a chance to grow, a chance to be wiser than you were yesterday and a chance to discover what you truly want.
You get as much as you give in a relationship
Some people tend to expect so much in a relationship that they forget the fact that their partner probably has a few expectations too. If you’re always whining, crying and blaming your partner for all the things they never gave you, then don’t always expect them to react with apologies and confessions of how much they love you. They’re human. They need just as much love and attention as you do.
So, the next time you’re about to tell your partner that they don’t understand you, try to reflect on how many times you have ever tried to understand them. *Continue reading to next page*
