Love or Long Term Convenience?
As we enter months into a worldwide Pandemic, it's left a lot of people stressed and unsure of what the future may hold. We have been given the opportunity to pause from our everyday hectic lifestyles and have now had the chance to think about our current relationships. Whether you are married, in a long term relationship or possibly just getting to know a partner during these times with lockdowns and unrest. There are some of you who may be currently re-evaluating some of the choices in your lives.
Whatever you current situation may be, this has given us plenty of time to either love or hate being with our partner 24/ 7. If you are feeling overly frustrated that you now have to spend endless days and nights with the ones who you are committed to, then maybe it's time to pause for a moment and really ask yourself. Is the person that I've chosen to spend my life with truly the one with whom I feel a sense of security through the good and the bad that life has to offer? If the answer is NO, then maybe it's time to take a good, long look at the choices that you've made for yourself up to this point.
As we all know, life is entirely too short to spend even one day filled with unhappiness. We all know that no relationship is perfect. But in times of distress and dismay, the partner that you choose to spend your life with matters. No amount of time, children or assets will hold a relationship that was not meant to be together.
Everyone deserves happiness. If you sit back and realize that you are truly in a loveless, convenient relationship and it's left you feeling empty inside then maybe it's time to make some changes. Gone are the times that we should stay together "for the kids", or remain trapped out of guilt of what others may think. You are in charge of your own happiness. If this Pandemic has not made you realize that the partner that you chose is absolutly the person that you want to spend the rest of your days with. It is time to pause, make a plan and take action towards building a better tomorrow. Remember that change begins with YOU. It could just be that you need to change your own mindset and that is where you should begin. Believe me you do not want to be at the end of your days, thinking back on your life and filled with regret and "what ifs". Don't wish things were different, be the difference and actively create the happiness that you deserve.
