I accept that there are ups and downs on a long-term relationship, we go through phases and sometimes you get along well and sometimes you don’t. It is unrealistic to think that you are going to feel connected and happy all the time in the relationship.
Hang in during bumpy times. Stay connected, remain respectful to one another. The goal is to ride out difficult periods, knowing that the two of you will reconnect.
Relationship is dynamic and adaptable. People grow and change, a relationship lasts when people are flexible and find ways to adjust to new situations. Needing a relationship to remain the same for 26+ years makes it suffocating and boring.
Change is an opportunity, not a threat.
Bring the best YOU to the relationship. If you remain focused on your own personal growth, you will be more fulfilled as a person and more interesting and happy as a partner. You will also put less pressure on the relationship and your partner to provide you with a sense of self or purpose.
