Love Isn’t All You Need.

There comes a time in every relationship when love is not enough.

” I love you without knowing how, or when or from where. All I know is that I love you. ” This painted rosy picture is by far not enough to make any relationship work. It definitely takes more than that.

It’s true that most of the time we do not get to choose. We fall in love ; the right person, the wrong person, the easy going the tough… it’s endless. Then it becomes; it is impossible, it is risky, it’s pointless… It takes more than that to overcome those tough ones.

Those four elements are very important in a relationship especially during critical times. 

Communication is main key element. You used to communicate well before those tons of problems appeared. It’s funny how we withdraw from each other during difficult times. When it’s now more than ever that a proper communication is needed. Just keep expressing how you feel but in a positive way without accusing and blaming. Open up and keep way for discussion.  

Another kind is appreciation. Move a bit from the negativity that is surrounding you both. Focus instead on the positive aspects of your partner and show how much you appreciate them and their efforts. This gives hope and motivation. Always remind yourself of what made you sparkle when you first met him/her and build on it. 

But where did it all go? Spend quality time with each other far away from issues of life. It is important especially during difficult moments. Soon you’ll be looking forward for the next intimate meeting. 

It is to sacrifice yourself, to think outside of your spirit and your own needs. 

They say love conquers all? Maybe, if we follow those four love elements.
