We all know that anything worth doing is worth doing well. The same thing goes for our relationships with friends, family and our partners. A good relationship doesn’t just happen, it takes dedicated effort on our part and on the part of the other person as well. It takes two people who are dedicated to each other and their relationship to have one that works, that fulfills the needs of both.
However if we are the ones doing all the work while our partner seems to have very little interest in keeping the relationship alive and thriving, then it might be time to sit down with them and have a discussion about our feelings. Perhaps it’s just a matter of our partner not realizing that something is amiss, that the relationship has stopped fulfilling all of our needs. Sometimes by talking about it they will see that we need more from them and they will be willing to put in that extra effort.
It is easy to take love for granted. It is easy to assume that our partner knows that we love them or them us. I read a post on Facebook earlier that said this: You really shouldn’t say “I love you” unless you mean it. But, if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget. ~Jessica, age 8~ To me that speaks volumes. However just saying “I love you” isn’t always enough either. The words are meaningless without the actions to back it up. As that saying goes “actions speak louder than words”, and that is also very true. It’s lovely to hear the words but if that’s all we get, then something is not right.
Only we, deep inside ourselves, can know if a relationship is worth fighting for, or if it should be let go of, so we can move on and find someone who cares enough to put in the effort required to make a relationship with us work. In my opinion, if both partners are not willing to put in the dedicated effort to make the relationship work for both of them, then it’s time to move on.
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
