If it’s always more important that you are heard instead of hearing and understood instead of understanding; you should do a study on what it is to compromise in a relationship.
Let’s face it, who want’s to be around a person who behaves as if their life and feelings are not only what matters most, but they are all that matter period?
Saying you love someone is always the easy part. Actually doing so is where the challenge comes in. In 1 Corinthians 13 the bible states that “Love suffers long.”
That doesn’t mean you suffer under the hand of abuse, but it means that you forgive and you don’t harbor hate or resentment for a love who is only being human.
Love and lasting relationships require a great deal of compromise, sacrifice, and forgiveness. Couples tend to argue a lot more when they feel unloved and most
relationships break because the evidence of true love is either not present or the individual that leaves is too unhealthy to recognize it.
I believe the more relationships we experience, the wiser we should become in regards to the success of them. If you are still single and waiting for the love of your
life well into your 40’s without any hope in sight, (and this is not meant for those who have lost loved ones due to a tragedy, but for those who have never been able to have a successful relationship after many attempts) I suggest you begin a detailed self-evaluation so that you can eliminate the problem if it happens to be YOU.
Are You ready and willing to receive the love of your life?
