Relationships Are Sometimes a Challenge
When the dating game starts, relationships seem easy. While there might be significant preparation and presentation involved in new relationships, the actual interaction is easy, the attraction is strong, and because of those crazy-in-love romantic feelings, pleasing your partner is easy. You’re veritably driven to be a great couple.
But when that initial rush wears off, things get harder. It’s not as easy to keep trying when the annoyances creep in or compromises have to be made.
Committed couples, however, know all about these challenges. They know that compromise must occur for a relationship to keep moving forward. They know that it’s sometimes hard to be emotionally vulnerable. They know that expectations won’t always be met.
Above all, they know that you have to continually work at a relationship. But even more importantly, they know this work is more than worth the trouble.
This is what takes a relationship from casual to committed. This is what makes a fling into long-term love. Committed couples know that creating new experiences, making intimacy important, and working hard to always respect one another are vital to a relationship’s health, and that you shouldn’t just give up as soon as things get rocky.
Take that advice, and you’ll find your own committed relationship.
