Life is good when you are traveling your path with someone who acknowledges you for who you are. Nothing more. Nothing less.
I often wonder how many have this. Or, of those who do, whether they realize just how special it is. Indeed, it is a very special thing, especially as time passes and life experience leads to an evolution of being.
In the past, I’ve been in relationships where my companion’s view of me did not evolve with me. They wanted me to stay the same, but it was too late. I’d already changed — for the better I think. Besides, that just doesn’t work.
We are human beings. We cannot stay stagnant. We are meant to change. Scary as it may be, in order to succeed, our relationships with our friends, family, and lovers must allow for us to grow and change. And it’s a two-sided process, meaning both parties have a role in the way the relationship evolves or doesn’t.
If you are lucky enough to have this, be thankful. If you don’t, why not try to create it by getting to know the other in present time. You might be surprised at what you notice. Perhaps, if it is a spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend, you do this with, you’ll fall in love all over again.
