    A Soulful relationship

    If you're not married yet, share this with a friend.


     


    If you are married, share it with your spouse or other
    married couples and reflect on it.

    An African proverb states, 'Before you get married,
    keep both eyes open, and after you marry, close one
    eye.'

    Before you get involved and make a commitment to
    someone, don't let lust, desperation, immaturity,
    ignorance, pressure from others or a low self-esteem,
    make you blind to warning signs. Keep your eyes open,
    and don't fool yourself that you can change someone or
    that what you see as faults aren't really important.

    Once you decide to commit to someone, over time his or
    her flaws, vulnerabilities, pet peeves, and
    differences will become more obvious.

    If you love your mate and want the relationship to
    grow and evolve, you've got to learn to close one eye
    and not let every little thing bother you.

    You and your mate have many different expectations,
    emotional needs, values, dreams, weaknesses, and
    strengths. You are two unique individual children of
    God who have decided to share a life together.

    Neither of you are perfect, but are you perfect for
    each other? Do you bring out the best in each other?

    Do you compliment and compromise with each other, or
    do you compete, compare, and control? What do you
    bring to the relationship? Do you bring past
    relationships, past hurt, past mistrust, past pain?
    You can't take someone to the altar to alter him or
    her. You can't make someone love you or make someone
    stay.

    If you develop self-esteem, spiritual discernment, and
    'a life', you won't find yourself making someone else
    responsible for your happiness or responsible for your
    pain.
    Manipulation, control, jealousy, neediness, and
    selfishness are! not the ingredients of a thriving,
    healthy, loving and lasting relationship!

    Seeking status, sex, wealth, and security are the
    wrong reasons to be in a relationship.

    WHAT KEEPS A RELATIONSHIP STRONG??
    Communication, intimacy, trust, a sense of humour,
    sharing household tasks, some getaway time without
    business or children and daily exchanges (a meal,
    shared activity, a hug, a call, a touch, a note).

    Leave a nice message on the voicemail or send a nice
    email.
    Sharing common goals and interests. Growth is
    important. Grow together, not away from each other,
    giving each other space to grow without feeling
    insecure. Give each other a sense of belonging and
    assurances of commitment.

    Don't try to control one another. Learn each other's
    family situation. Respect his or her parents
    regardless.

    Don't put pressure on each other for material goods.
    Remember for richer or for poorer. If these
    qualities are missing, the relationship will erode as
    resentment, withdrawal, abuse, neglect, dishonesty,
    and pain replace the passion.

    The difference between 'United' and 'Untied' is where
    you put the i.
    'We build our lives, a day at a time, often putting
    less than our best into the building. Then with a
    shock we realize we have to live in the house we have
    built.
