Most things in life we either achieve…or we don’t.
Making more money, getting a better job or building a project may succeed or fail–if the latter, it’s just back to the drawing board.
A relationship is different. Even if we separate for a while or make a huge mistake and hurt someone …
as long as we both care about that relationship, there’s always a chance for it to be renewed or repaired–whatever damage we might have done.
Try not to confuse building and nurturing a relationship with building and maintaining something mechanical, coordinated or businesslike:
you could give up on somebody too soon and lose what might have been something wonderful for everyone.
Celebrate even relationship problems: both of you could still be looking in the same direction so there’s still hope.
This is worth it…because all we really have in life is each other; and we’re all in this together.
