The mind can be a very tricky thing. And sometimes, we don't help it either way. Our perception of things often clutters what is happening in front of us. And in relationships, this couldn't be more true.
Sit down with a couple that has been together for 30+ years and you'll probably hear, "I love him/her more and more each day." You should take this statement for what it is... the truth. With tradition comes consistency, hard work and loyalty that is unbreakable. While today, your significant other could be doing right by you on a daily basis. However, instead of cherishing this positive energy, you see it as something that is 'suppose' to be done.
When did satisfaction become a concern in relationships? People want more and more, not realizing what they already have is golden. Why are we jaded by good deeds done for us? Looking outward, neglecting the gifts given to us...
Relationship Reform #1 - Any relationship that is geared towards outward circumstances is doomed to fail. The "I want to have what he/she is having" approach to relationships is a time tested failure. The 30+ year relationship can not be reached under these guidelines. So take the time out to reevaluate your connection; where could you make a change?
