I am blessed to be in love and to be with someone I know who loves me unconditionally. I hate to sound cliche but the first time I laid eyes on Carlos I knew we were meant to be connected. He is one of the most wonderful men I know, and I am so blessed to have him in my life as well as my son’s life. I love seeing people in love and I love seeing couples who have grown old together. I hope one day to grow old with Carlos.
Because it is Valentine’s day. I want to talk about some of what Carlos and I believe has helped us overcome some of our darkest times in our relationship and what we do to stay connected. I also want to know what you think it takes to have a solid relationship.
Carlos and I got off to a pretty rocky start, we argued, we didn’t trust one another and we had our guard up for quite a while. Working through the issues we had was not an easy task. Yet we were in love and we wanted to be the best version of ourselves for one another. We had to fix problems within ourselves and identify what past issues we were bringing into our relationship that were effecting it negatively.
No one’s perfect and everyone enters into a relationship with something that can be worked on. I entered into my relationship with trust and anger issues from past relationships. ( That’s a story for another day) It took work for me to overcome those issues.
Carlos and I have always chosen to let love be what leads us in our relationship. We are partners and we always choose not to give up on one another.
When we have a problem we talk about it. We both know we can’t read minds. We talk about it our problems we may debate about it but we get to the root of a problem and don’t sweep it under the rug.
We are also teammates. Carlos is my right hand man and I am his right hand lady. We understand that we are more powerful when we work together. That means that we support one another and adapt to each others life changes in various ways. We both want the best for ourselves and our relationship and will work to no end for success in our lives and relationship.
We respect each others space and we trust one another.
We are in no ways perfect and each day we grow more open, and more vulnerable. We experience something new to navigate everyday. What do you believe is needed to build a strong and stable relationship?
I would love to know.
Also Happy Valentines Day. ( Even if you think it’s cheesy!)
