Commitment seems like a “dirty” word more and more. Learning to accept yourself is hard enough but, having to accept another human being can be an impossible task for many. Finding that perfect match is possible as long as you look for the right reasons.
The #1 key to success in any relationship is friendship. Is your husband (wife) your best friend?.
Finding the perfect mate can be the best way to find that perfect friendship.
Can you see yourself in that friend?
How well do you know yourself?
Are you your best friend? The person you are looking for is just like you are. How well would you live with yourself? Do you trust your judgment? Are you the perfect person you project or are you looking for the perfect person?
I have been in a relationship with my best friend for over 40 years and it has been a lot of work. People that tell you how easy and great it has been, are all phony. Marriage is a full time job and like any job you need to learn, grow and teach all at the same time. Your partner is there when you need him(her)
Having another opinion, that is not like yours, is one of the most rewarding experiences I have been fortunate to have for all these years. Not being right all the time is a tremendous learning tool that many forget. You can have a thought or idea in your head and only yourself to talk about it, that must be very lonely. I always share two points of view.
If you are wondering about how being in a relationship can improve your quality of life, chances are that person is very close to you. Are you ready to be your best friend? Never forget this, friendship is the most important part of your marriage, nothing else. It must be more important than your kids, your family, your job, money, your car…
How important is your body, mind and soul? Your best friend’s body, mind and soul must be an asset to yours.
