The couples that are "meant to be" are the ones who go through everything that is ment to tear them apart and come out even stronger than they were before.
Communication is both an expressive, message-sending, and a receptive, message-receiving, process. Failure to communicate effectively can be due to a problem on either or both ends of the process. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Be direct and honest; don't dance around the issue or play games.
"We're not alone in this. Every type of loving relationship deals with this shit. It's natural to take advantage and take for granted of the ones we love most. We have to recognize it and make sure we don't do it. Although it's a subconscious thing. I don't think there is control. The best we can do is make sure to make an effort to tell others we appreciate them."
True. I have never been a jealous person about things. I'm always happy when someone can afford or has received special materialist things.....wether I have them or not or will never have them. I am beyond filthy rich with the relationships I have with my kids and my husband. Lucky Me.. .Lucky Us. Nothing else compares.
When I look into your eyes It's like watching the night sky Or a beautiful sunrise There's so much they hold And just like them old stars I see that you've come so far To be right where you are How old is your soul? I won't give up on us Even if the skies get rough I'm giving you all my love I'm still looking up
Not that I know much about great relationships, but what I have learned from bad relationships is that failure comes from NOT trying to always see the best in each other, NOT believing that the other sees the best in you and, of course, from NOT being able to laugh together...
