We are all in search of the perfect relationship; men and women were created to complete each other and it’s no wonder why they are always on the lookout for their match. However, more often than not they end up obsessing on the ideal relationship, overlooking the person and neglecting the work it entails to build a lasting relationship.
People no matter how close they grow to love each other are still unique in their own way and it is important to recognize and respect that individuality. Some people because of their strong desire to make their relationship perfect end up trying to control everything and make it work according to how they have envisioned it would be. They try to change their partners according to who they want them to be and not accept them for who they are. But anything that is smothered dies and the same goes with relationships.
Loving relationships should maintain enough space for each individual to thrive and grow; supporting one another in order to reach each other’s potential. When one or the other steps in too close, over shadowing the other then the relationship starts to build up resentment. Respect for one another’s uniqueness is very important and if you keep looking for that person who will fit your requirements, you will never be able to find the relationship that will make you happy.
Being in a relationship doesn’t mean you have to own each other. Maintain space and respect the boundaries when you are with someone. This will not only help each other grow and reach one’s potential it will also keep the mystery and interest in each other alive. You can’t expect to know everything just because you are a couple. Give him or her freedom and the liberty to disclose and share his new discoveries and it will give you both something new to learn about each other.
Through this, both of you will maintain the solemnity of the relationship. Respect is the most important thing in order to gain your partner’s trust. Being able to sustain the responsibilities and obligations is also important since aside from your mutual affairs someone are involve, and that’s what we called family.
