Nothing is perfect; life is full of uncertainty, relationships are complex, and people can be irrational. Expect more and give less – the sad reality of relationships these days. Love is a constantly constructed two-way street where both partners must water the flowers to blossom.
Unfortunately, people are too indulged in fairy tales and tend to forget that reality is different. The fancy four-letter word cloaks a world where partners must hold each other’s hands and walk together.
Here, each person has to put time and effort into communicating, comprehending, and taking care of each other through thick and thin. Appreciation combined with respect, acknowledgment, validation, and support is adornment in a relationship.
Do flowers only need water to bloom? No, right? Flowers need water, light, and the proper soil to keep them in full bloom. Likewise, relationships require the same nurturing and care but with different ingredients.
It is easier for couples to miss out on tiny details that matter with lives becoming more hectic these days, and people think a lovely text can mend a relationship’s scars. In reality, it works as a catalyst that enhances the acceleration of the process that weakens the foundation of a relationship. Respect, love, communication, and consistency are the premises of love that strengthen your relationship with these. Everywhere around social media, people are flaunting their relationship.
Want to feel love and connected to your partner? Connie Weddell’s book “You’re there for him. I’m there for you. – God” is a perfect book to understand the needs of a relationship and how to keep it healthy, happy and satisfying.
