Let’s discuss a topic that I’ve not only observed in my family and friends relationships, but I’ve personally experienced it too. Individuals get into relationships for a myriad of reasons, but when a person only gives a portion of him or herself, completing the act of building a solid foundation is nearly impossible.
In sports, a team plays together to reach a common goal. Each player must learn to lean on and trust each other. For couples, the same principle applies because we should be fostering a team atmosphere. Something happens in the process and they end up treating the other person like an ENEMY. Potentially, what may have caused this divide between the persons that vowed to love for life, is at some point in the journey there was a feeling of betrayal or a loss of trust.
Now don’t get me wrong, relationships will have its ups and downs, but when you’re committed both parties must communicate the message that “We are in This Together”. No one can succeed at anything great on their own. It takes that significant other pushing us and helping to accomplish our dreams. Let’s eliminate the ENEMY mindset, and go out and achieve success.
Take a closer look at the image above. Love is suppose to be pure, excellent, peaceful, forgiving and always evolving. Stop the battle for control and yield to the great experience of love.
So look your love one in the eyes and say, I’M NOT THE ENEMY.
Love you guys, see you next week….
