We ALL know it. Many of us don't see it coming. And when we find ourselves there, most of us don't know what to do.
I'm talking about a Relationship, and what happens in, and with, it over time.
I think we all, in theory, can agree that a relatioship isn't static. It's a "living organism" that transition and changes over time. And like all other living organismes it needs to be fed, nurtured and loved to survive.
But do we treat our relationship with, for example, our spouse with that same respect we treat a professional relationship at work? Adopting, like we do to the changes of the market, the industry, the company and the team we work with?
Very often we believe that the person we married, live with, love and respect won't change over time but rather remain the same person we once fell in love with. That's static thinking. That's not a "living organism" but a stale, predictable and in the long run "dead" way of being in a relationship.
So what to do about it?
To start with, treat your love relationship like the living organism it is. Feed it, nurture and love it. Show emotions. Don't hide behind a mask of ignorance, laziness, taking the relationship for granted. Work on it, as if its survival depended on you fighting every day to protect it.
A relationship is a transition. It's a journey. It's evolving and changing over time. So "get ready 4 change". Have the life you want by getting to know more about your spouse, your relationship, and, most importanly but too often forgotten...get to know yourself...and get ready 4 change.
