Why are so many of us still single? It doesn’t matter how old we are, how many times you have been married, we are single right now in this moment. In my experience, from people I have known and what has been done to me… I feel that people are not able to commit fully to one human being. They seem to have one foot in the relationship and one foot out. Because you know just maybe there could be somebody that might come along that appears to have greener grass than what you have in front of you. Really?? How about watering the grass that’s right in front of you. how about nurturing that so that it can become all you wanted it to be or could even imagine. When you can’t fully commit or work on the relationship that you’re in, then really is it going to go anywhere? I say no, it will eventually fizzle out. one of you will end up cheating on the other, I know that all too well. I think it’s hard to find 2 people fully committed in a relationship. One usually is and the other is kinda halfway there, as the other foot is dangling outside of the relationship.
Relationships take work. Whether you’re married or not, you are in a relationship with someone. You don’t have to be living with them but if you are dating and if you’ve dated for quite a while you are in a committed relationship. Sneaking around talking to other women on an intimate level is not being fully committed. If you can’t be that with the person you are with… then stop and think… reflect. am I in the right relationship? How do I really feel about this person? Or, what can I do to make this better? I see so many relationships just thrown away because one or both people don’t want to take the time to work on it, to talk, communicate.
I realize when you have been married to someone for a very long time or just even in a relationship with someone for a very long time, things can get stagnant. You get into a routine you do the same things all the time… that is when you need to change things up. You have to be able to recognize when your relationship is in that place. So change it up, go eat somewhere different, take a weekend road trip, do something you haven’t done in a long time. think about what you did when you first met. what made you happy, what was exciting. Bring more passion back into the bedroom. There are so many things you can do without dissolving the relationship, before you start cheating on your partner that you supposedly still love but but yet you are looking for some other kind of excitement to keep you going. Find the excitement with the person you’re with now. And sometimes yes, relationships need to end but I still think as a society we do not put enough time and effort into the person that we are with. We let it go. We just say, “oh there’s gotta be something better out there.” Take the time working with what is right in front of you, because the grass is only greener where you water it.
Don’t be the sprinkler that is watering a bunch of different plants. Be the hose that’s directly on the one in front of you, and grow together :))
Keep hiking to the top,
