My relationship is an endless lesson on unselfishness.
It’s been 15 years already and I still forget the simple truth it’s based on: as soon as I focus on what I need and want, things go south.
But the moment I concentrate on making her happy, we both get happier.
It seems to me that the only love you get in a relationship is the love you’ve given first. Really needing some love won’t get you anywhere.
If this is the case, we need our partners more than we think. They are like the mirrors that reflect our love and send it back our way.
I wonder if this is true of other things, too. If I try to make her more self-confident, instead of myself, for example… would that self-confidence come back to me as well?
I just gotta check this out.
