A relationship is like a house. When a lightbulb goes out you do not go and buy a new house, you fix the lightbulb.
There aren’t many quotes that stand true or that I agree with but this one is so true. For those of you who keep dropping men or women every time something doesn’t go your way, you lack this specific understanding.
If you’re in a relationship for some fun and don’t want to get married then this doesn’t apply to you except I hope your partner knows that’s what you want.
For those of you who do want to get married or want more in your relationship you know for a fact that you both will not always agree on things. As your bond progresses more responsibilities add onto the relationship. Children come, new jobs and stress but all of these endevours are worth it when it’s achieved with the person you love.
No one can ever reach this level of a relationship without fixing, building and practicing new behaviors every day. Someone built the house you’re in. When you move furniture around it doesn’t always fit. You have to move things around. You can get bored of looking at the same paint and so you scrape off the old and repaint the wall.
A house has a lawn that needs cut and a roof that needs repair. People are like homes. They don’t stay the same, we’re always evolving and to think that you can leave everything be and that your relationship will work is to think that someone will eventually cut your grass.
Don’t ever stop mowing your grass. Don’t ever stop challenging each other.
