Relationships do not immediately reach a deep level of understanding, comfort and safety to be yourself. Even if it appears that way at first, the closeness is merely an illusion. Over time, as you express your needs and wants and listen to the other person’s requests and demands, gradually you can reach a mutual understanding, a sense that you can let down and be yourself.
Today’s question is: Do you have the PATIENCE that it takes to allow love to grow? Are you willing to study about relationships, learn what the other person wants and needs, discover and express your own needs, and allow the relationship to naturally evolve?
PATIENCE requires time. allowing whatever time is needed instead of attempting to rush the process of building a relationship. If your goal is to improve the health of your body, it may take quite a while before you are finally eating healthy food, exercising regularly, getting adequate rest and sleep and maintianing a positive outlook. If your goal is to build a successful business, you need to take steps and give the process time to unfold. And if your goal is to improve your relationships, it is essential to realize that time can be a great friend.
- Do you have the fortitude to persevere when your relationship struggles seem insurmountable?
- Can you tolerate and endure circumstances and interactions that are unloving and even hostile on the way to building a relationship?
- Do you have the unflappable, unswerving stamina to persist until the end, to not give up and not give in to impatience?
PATIENCE is a virtue and those who have it can achieve great things in all areas of their life. However, it is important to apply all those other qualities. It is not only YOUR drive and incentive and being in the present moment but also the other person’s drive and willingness and patience that will ultimately allow your relationship to thrive.
