Where is the love Wednesday!
To piggy back off of my M.M post (when the odds are against you), if your relationship was in jeopardy, would you do what it takes to save it?
Many people love to say: “I’m the ride or die for my man or woman” but what if you reached a point in your relationship of no return? Meaning something horrible happened such as the loss of a job, infidelity, an incurable illness, etc.? And it caused major friction in your relationship, do you think you would do whatever it takes to keep your relationship strong?
As an aspiring therapist, I’m big on therapy or group therapy. The issue with that is that for many people, they were taught to be “strong”, not to be vulnerable to others (especially strangers), or that therapy is only for the crazies. All these things are not true and are merely just excuses we give ourselves when we are in denial to get help.
If you are willing to do whatever it takes to get things right, you HAVE to be HONEST. With any hardship in a relationship, the reconciliation process requires it. The honesty, good or bad, can be the beginning of the healing process of trusting your partner again.
Be Realistic. It. Takes. Time. Patience is a virtue but also a major key to what it takes. If trust is broken, you have to let life run its course. If your partner has ultimatums that are NEEDED you better (yes, I said better) do what is asked or you can kiss the relationship goodbye. Now, if the relationship is worthless to you, abiding by the requests isn’t necessary and you can walk away. There is no need to go through the motions.
Just some thoughts to think of friends. Well wishes in your relationships!
