The Commitment

There are a lot of things that we are taught in life, but the one we are never really taught is how to have healthy and happy relationships. It’s almost like we assume that just because we found someone that of the opposite sex or the same sex that we are interested in that things should just work out. But, the truth is that there is more to a relationship than just attraction, and like anything that we want to be successful at a relationship takes continuous work and commitment. 

Deep down we all have a desire to love and be loved, but we may not know how to go about it. For most of us we learn how to be in relationships from our parents and the other people in our immediate circle. If a person sees drama, jealousy, abuse or cheating unfortunately that is how they mightbelieve a relationship should be, but it doesn’t have to be that way. To achieve the relationship that you desire is really all in the commitment. Not just the commitment to another person, but a commitment to yourself to have the best relationship possible. Just because you see a Certain type of behavior it doesn’t meant that, that it is the way things should be, or have to be for you. What matters is what feels right for you and your partner.

To have the right relationship first starts with finding that someone that you are of course attracted to, but that you connect with on a deeper level, someone that you have shared interest with, as well as common goals and beliefs.  But, what really makes a relationship successful is mutual love and respect. It is about being fearless, and not worrying about the what if’s, and the what could possibly go wrong, or giving up when things get tough. But,  for you and your partner both to be committed to always working at making your relationship the best it can be. That starts with being loving, kind, thoughtful, and considerate. It is about giving to your relationship and your partner exactly what it is you claim to want. The true commitment is loving through the good times, and the challenging times. 

Are you committed?

Love and blessings in divine order,
