Morale In a Relationship, Whoever Takes the Lead.

Morale In a Relationship, Whoever Takes the Lead.

A good or bad relationship isn’t all about your feelings, but they do count too. It isn’t all about being happy, content, excited. Life and love come in waves, and a lot of that is grunt work. Just getting thru each day. It’s about finding someone who has your back, who works with you to solve the problems and share the labour. To celebrate the small wins and help set the goals and boundaries. Who doesn’t undermine, criticize or sabotage you when you’re just trying to do your best. It’s more important to know that you’re safe with them than it is to decide if you’re happy.

Do you and your partner check in on your relationship status? More than you do your bank balance and credit score? Do you share your life and it’s journey? Or are you just biding time and space under the same roof? Counting heads just to say you have a relationship?

Everyone expects people to be coupled, and there are certainly incentives to couple in society, in it’s laws and religions. Families push till you get into one and have babies. Whether you want them or not. But you may or may not have a good model of what it takes to be a couple, a family.

You do have to survive the experience, and most of that is how you tread water in it together, rather than if you’re happy.
