Do you ever wonder why people get dumped, broken up with, or divorced? Or better yet, why did you decide to dump your wife, husband, girlfriend, or boyfriend? With marriages ending in divorce at about 60% of the time or more, I was curious to know why they aren't lasting as long as they used to? Why do people choose to let go of a relationship after being together for 30, 20, 10, 5, or even one year of invested time with their soul mates? Because we humans are a highly diverse and complicated species, the reasons are unique and plenty, but it always comes back to a couple of main factors- loss of feeling appreciated and made to feel significant in the relationship. Keep in mind that I did not say loved...
I talked to a man that told me that after 25 years of marriage, his wife was not feeling appreciated and that she had found someone that made her feel special.
I asked him, "Did you thank her for the small things she did for you?"
He answered in a serious tone, "Shoot, she has a nice home and me to come home to her, how else should I thank her? It's her job to clean the house, make dinner, and tend to the kids ain't it? She should know I love her very much!"
It is in the fine details that a unity between partners builds its sustainable foundation! It is in the wink of a playful eye to let them know that you are mesmerized by them, a walk on the beach to embrace quality time, and a nap together where the trust and loyalty is built!
It is in the gentle kiss on the forehead, a reassuring hug, a simple flower to say I love you, and a piece of chocolate to comfort!
It is in the soft caress of the hair to say I am present and here to stay, the sharing of a single drink together that quenches thy thirst for each other, a simple text that conveys to them "I'm thinking of you" to re-energize the soul! Everything in this life requires attention to detail, especially your Love Life! Learn it will- seek professional consultation, it's worth it!!
But what can happen to even the strongest of unions? Yes- they can still be strengthened or challenged! The choice is going to be in the people who decide what they're relationship is going to be made up of, what each other expects from one another, and complete openness to communication! It is like happiness, it is what we make it, always has been and always will be!
With that said, "Put a little MaxPower into your life!"
