Relationships take sacrifice, commitment, time, and most of all patience. Those things in life, are never easy. It is not as easy as picking up a pen and scribbling some lines. It’s not. It takes much more than that. Sometimes you will have to do things, you never thought of doing. Or going through things you’ve never thought you would go through. It takes will, strength and especially heart to get through all the “unnecessary” things you may have going on within the relationship.
It’s take two to tango and it takes two to have a successful relationship. Without each of these important corner stones, the relationship or any type of foundation you may be building, will never exist. A person might not ever give up what they’ve always been doing before the relationship began, you can’t really take that away even though it may bug you in sense. In a sense, relationships are much more than just what you physically see day-to-day of that person. The physical parts will always come. No matter who your with, no matter what they look like, the physical part of it, will always be there. That’s never going anywhere because beauty is in the eye of the beholder. How many are actually in it for the physical part and not the emotional?
The emotional side is much more than you can imagine. Because the physical will never have the same impact as the emotional. If you can’t take time out of your day to listen to your significant other, if you can’t communicate about certain problems, not all but certain ones, then it will all fall down. Eventually some will realize that, okay, the relationship isn’t going my way, what needs to be done? If you aren’t asking questions, if you aren’t finding a way to fix these issues, then… they aren’t going anywhere except on top of the pile that’s already building. It may take an emotional effect on you and you might say, hey, its unnecessary to talk about these things, I’ll just let it go. But the more you let it sit, the more of a burden it becomes. The harder it is to fix the things that are going on.
Relationships are a learning process. You either learn from it or you don’t. You either sacrifice some things or want to be accepted for who you are. You either become that person that gets taken advantage of or you be the person that takes advantage of your life and what you already have. It should never be about someone being superior, remember, we are all still fighting for the same thing in a relationship and that’s equality. No women nor man, should say, he or she is superior. That’s not the way one should think. As long as the person is functional, then there will never be a superior being in the relationship.
Everyone wants to be accepted but in the long run, it’s not going to be about acceptance, it’s going to be about sacrifice. If you aren’t willing to let go of things in your life, then, I suggest you see, find out what’s really important to you. Then prepare yourself for the long road ahead.
