All of us are guilty of staying in relationships for love and love only. You take a look at the person lying next to you and guess what? You don't have anything in common, you don't share the same beliefs, one wants a family and one does not, you are serious, the other person just goes wherever the wind blows, you are happy, they are sad and the list just goes on and on. I understand that opposites attract, but sometimes complete opposites just don't work, and loving your opposite may not be enough.
Often times we look past the little signs and even the big ones because we love the person we are with. Sometimes we are in love... head over heels even. In the beginning we wear a blind fold because we really don't want to see what's in front of us. We put on a facade and try to be what they want us to be, and it's OK in the beginning. There is love there, but again I ask, "What's love got to do with it?" Do we allow ourselves to become lost and accept it because love is involved? Do we tolerate things we normally wouldn't be we are in love?
Yes love is a big part of relationships but it's not the only part. You should be able to communicate, share the same feelings, the same beliefs and want some of the same things out of life. You should be able to dream together, not separately, and work together to reach your goals. If I support you no matter what you do, then why can't you support me? Love alone just isn't enough these days. It's going to take more than love to bring me home at night!
I know you are probably trying to figure out where I'm going with this, and trust me I know that love is a strong emotion, and it makes the world go around. We come from love therefore we are love. I'm not arguing with that, but speaking in relationship terms you need more. In addition to the love you have for someone, you also need compassion, patience, faith and understanding. You have to be ready to stick together through thick, thin, good and bad. Be there for your partner when they are sick or down and out. Be there when they need a shoulder to cry on or an ear to listen. These are all things that hold the relationship together. You don't want to find yourself 30 years later in the same room for 4 hours and not one word is spoken. Don't just exist in the relationship, learn, blossom and grow. The next time you feel yourself... losing yourself... in a relationship... Just ask yourself "What's love got to do with it?"
