Many of us are familiar with the great Shakespeare quote: “The course of true love never did run smooth”. Being in a relationship nowadays doesn’t necessarily imply we are in love with that someone. It’s a shame really to hear about so many breakups and divorces and it makes us wonder if things used to be different.
But some of us are lucky enough to find that special someone, the person we want to be with forever. However, forever doesn’t mean much in today’s world when everything’s fleeting.
Relationships come and go. This week we could be romantically involved, and in two months time we could be with a different partner or single again. Some of us find that person that changes their whole life, that puts everything into perspective. We feel the magic of that kind of love and know it’s unique because we’ve never been there before. Love is indeed the most powerful thing in the universe. Studies say our brains react the same way to falling in love as they do to cocaine.
But sometimes things can go rough, we may lose that connection with our partner. Conflict and arguments arise and then we think everything’s lost. But just because things are hard, it doesn’t mean we just have to quit.
Real love is about putting the other person’s feelings and well-being ahead of your own. It’s about showing compassion, empathy, understanding and kindness. If there is conflict, letting go of that relationship is a coward thing to do, it’s taking the easy way out. Fight for it with all your being unless you really think there’s no love left between you two.
The fight is well worth it because you know that the chances for you to love this way again are very slim. Falling in love with someone and finding something deep and meaningful are the rarest things in the world. Don’t take them for granted.
Have you suffered loss? Share this and let your loved one know how much they mean to you.
