You bought all the material to build a relationship but forgot the fundamentals to shield it from vultures, Judas and Jezebels of the 21st Century; an iron fence and a spiky electric gate! Relationships don’t have shortcuts; the essential element is the right partner by your side.
Relationships are stressful. They make you think, angry, sad, break your heart to smithereens, smile, laugh; simply relationships are a roller coaster. Each relationship out here has its fair share of misunderstandings; the difference lies in having someone who is willing to handle you at your worst.
It’s about being with someone that’s worth stressing over because a lot of times this will be the same person who can sweep away the stress and make you smile from ear to ear, giggle and revive untold joy and happiness like no one else can. It’s having someone who’s willing to work and walk with you through the ups and downs of life. This rare breed of a partner is all you need to brave all storms and weapons formed against you.
Again, it might sound cheesy that you set boundaries and limits when it comes to your relationship, but boundaries are integral. They set precedence for a respectable relationship full of mutual understanding, respect and care. Don’t be that country that opens their borders to the enemy, if you know what I mean!
