Yesterday, a reader emailed me his problem. He said he loved his wife but he has started falling out of love with her in a few months of his marriage. I was sad to read his email. I feel hurt when I see relationships falling apart or on the verge of it.
Today’s post is dedicated to this reader of Womanatics (and many thanks to him who found my articles helpful).
If I have to sum up my wisdom of relationships in one rule it would be – if you make it work, it will work.
I give utmost importance to relationships. In my opinion, one’s family, spouse, siblings and friends are the most important in his life and nothing can and should replace them.
Work For Your Relationship
A few may be upset to read that I am calling relationships a work. Though I personally relationships are easy. But I understand that sometimes we have to make extra efforts to set things right and this is what work means here.
Working for your relationship means whatever you do whether in connection with the relationship or not should add to it.
Since your relationship is at the core of everything, whatever you do will directly or indirectly impact your relationship. As of today, my life revolves around my baby. And whatever I do, which does not even seem to be related to her, has an impact on her. My career plans, the people I hang out with, the eating habits I develop etc all affect her in good or the bad way. Would you believe if I tell you that my hubby feels our relationship also gets affected by the kind of movies I watch?
The point is to do things that keep your life and relationships in harmony. Don’t give up easily. Keep faith and remain faithful.
If you decide to let it go apart, it will fall apart. But if you decide to keep it together, no one can break it. Remember the power to make it or break it lies with you and your partner. If your priority is to save your relationship, take actions that save it and it will survive. Infact, it will come up stronger.
Work for it. Work towards it. If you work, it will work too.
