Love is one of the most profound emotions known to human beings. There are many kinds of love, but many people seek its expression in a romantic relationship with a compatible partner (or partners). Intimate relationships are wonderful and something to aspire to. They can enhance your life in unbelievable ways. They can be very fulfilling and help you grow to your full potential. But always remember that they are a WANT not a need. Your self-esteem should never depend on finding someone special.
The first step to developing a healthy relationship begins with developing a fulfilling relationship with yourself, before you attempt to have a romantic relationship. Romantic feelings can be like a tidal wave sweeping you out to sea if you are not securely tied to a relationship with yourself. Many of you may want to be swept out to sea but this isn’t really healthy; and sometimes it’s even dangerous.
Love (as attraction and desire) is not enough. Love the follows careful selection, and is coupled with a willingness to work hard and extend yourself is also necessary. Don’t become a slave to the myth that preferential love will always span an entire lifetime. Only spiritual love lasts forever. So as you change, your relationship will change and sometimes it’ll fade away. You shouldn’t be discouraged by this. Change is a part of life and what makes it interesting.
