This post came to me at 5am on a Tuesday, I know it seems random, but the thing is I have went years with people always asking me for advice for them to only shoot down every thing I say or to completely ignore me even thought they were the ones who asked me. So this post is my advice about relationships take it or leave it, I honestly don’t care if you like it or not, because I’ve heard every excuse in the book.
Maybe this will help someone, maybe not, but please do feel free to leave a comment below if you would like to talk more on it.
I have been in a relationship with Todd since April 2011. That is just over 6 years. The six best years I have had in my entire 29 years on this planet. Through out these six years I have learned more about myself and am always learning more about Todd, as well as our kids who are full of personality and attitude and everything that comes with having two young children.
These six years really have been the best years of my life, but let me tell you sometimes things get hard.
When your in a relationship you have disagreements, or arguments. Struggles with figuring out the best way to raise your kids, money troubles, (my) anxieties that cause me to think the worst when something doesn’t go just the way it was supposed to, but the thing is all of that is part of being in a relationship. It has it’s ups and it’s downs because nobody in this world is perfect and you won’t always see eye to eye. This is what some people need to realize.
Everyone wants to be loved, cuddled, wanted or to be in a relationship, but it’s not always happiness and unicorn farts. Things get serious, troubles come and go, what matters most is instead of letting problems break you apart these are the things that make you stronger and make your relationship stronger, because you overcame them together.
I see so many friends complain on social media about their significant other or talk about being lonely after breaking off a long term relationship. First things first stop airing your dirty laundry, your relationship is between you and your significant other, by placing all your business out there for everyone to see your just begging for someone to give you bad advise when they don’t even know the half of it.
Work out your problems with your partner quitting is easy… If you truly love someone you will never “quit” on them because if you do you weren’t meant to be. So just let that sink in a bit. Relationships takes patience, love, and understanding remember that. Quitting is easy, never take that “easy” road if you want everything to work out with that person.
