It’s NOT about fighting about who has to put the dishes away. It’s NOT about screaming and crying because you’ve had a hard day and came home to the laundry not being done even though you asked them 5 times to do it. It’s NOT about your partner waiting until you get into the shower to decide they need to take a shit. It’s NOT fighting over financial problems.
SO MANY PEOPLE WOMEN AND MEN COMPROMISING WHEN IT COMES TO RELATIONSHIPS.
What message are we sending our kids! That they should settling for someone that doesn’t treat them right, that doesn’t take care of themselves, that yells and screams to get their point across?
THAT IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO BE IN JUST ANY RELATIONSHIP, THAN TO BE IN ONE THAT IS LOVING, SUPPORTING, BASED ON VALUES THAT ARE SHARED, THAT HAS OPEN HONEST COMMUNICATION THAT IS NOT BASED ON BLAMING THE OTHER PERSON!
How did we get to this point?
Now this rant comes from a post that has been floating around about how relationships are about all the shit things in life but your lucky because you still ‘love’ the other person!
I call BULLSHIT!
You are making excuses for the shitty relationship that you have gotten yourself into because you thought you couldn’t do any better. Or that you were possibly taught by your parents, that it is ‘normal’ to be in a relationship that is built on fighting, stress, blaming, shouting and expecting the other person to stop living at their full potential!
And people call this love! 💔
The world is fucked!
What are relationships supposed to be like?
It is about waking up early every morning to have breakfast together. It is about cuddling in bed together and sharing your deepest fear and aspirations, until both of you peacefully fall asleep.
It is about growing, changing together a pushing each other to be a better person.
It is about experiencing the world with a partner that ‘gets’ YOU!
It is about having different opinions and having a discussion around how and why your opinions are different.
It’s about not always agreeing, but seeing that it is OK to have different opinions.
It’s about ALWAYS thinking that your partner has YOUR best interests at heart…Even when it may seem that they didn’t… then talking to them about it.
It’s about having lots of sex that is about being connected, fun and in tune with each other.
it is about letting your partner make their own decisions and supporting them.
It’s about helping your partner change when they want to and are ready, it’s about guiding them to be their BEST!
It’s about showing our kids what to expect from their FUTURE partner…
What example are you setting?
Who am I to give out relationship advice? I know your thinking it…
I am the girl that has had the BEST relationship for over 10 years, that is married, that does have a toddler, that works full time, that has the open honest relationship, that has a husband that supports her, i have a husband that I support, that has the relationship that pushes each other to be better, that runs her own business helping other women do exactly the same thing!
So yes I do feel like I have a lot of runs on the board when it comes to an EPIC relationship that is full of real love!
Go ahead and share a picture of the person you love and want to share an AMAZING ‘normal’ relationship with copy and paste this, make their day.
