Last week I had the pleasure of seeing my friends at AHL. With all the breakups and divorces in the media, it seemed like a good time to talk about relationship red flags, and how to make sure your relationship stays healthy. Check it out here!
Love. It's the ultimate goal, isn't it? We are all having a human experience, seeking companionship. It's a biological and psychological desire, but its entirely illogical. Love is scary. When you are ready to expose your heart to someone, letting them in with the understanding that it could be broken at any time is terrifying. Even when it is right. The healthiest relationships are not without fear.
So how do you know the relationship is right?
How do you know when it's worth exposing your heart?
When do you know that your fears are worth fighting through?
When you find peace.
Peace in knowing where you stand, at all times. Peace in knowing that they treasure and will protect your heart as much as you do theirs. Peace in knowing that you are on a path together, growing indefinitely.
I see so many in a cycle of anxiety. Allowing themselves to be held hostage by the inconsistent affections, attention, and love of another. Questioning whether the relationship is worth their time. Questioning themselves.
Love doesn't make you question yourself. Love doesn't cause pain. Love brings peace.
I not only wish you love, I wish you peace.
