Experts from different fields all link the meaning of life towards creating a connection. Everyone wants to share a special bond we call “love” with someone, but why can the premise be so hard sometimes? Romance is quite complex. Everyone feels and wants it, but most of the time it doesn’t last. We all are different people with our moods, beliefs, issues, and the list goes on; these are all factors that may cause love to grow or die. It’s quite a miracle that people can last a lifetime together. It’s hard but not impossible.
Our society teaches us to have faith in romantic love and how it is the true meaning of life. Research shows that only a fraction of the world’s population can experience deep, lifelong relationships that poets and philosophers write about, while some learn to settle because they believe that it’s better than nothing. It might seem complicated, but creating a connection isn’t luck, but a choice. Everything will depend on how you perceive things. We are habitual creatures, getting caught up with our routines and sometimes neglecting what’s in front of us. Stop and look at your person closely and you might find that while love is complicated, you can work your way around it.
Every person has the same chance of experiencing a lifelong romance. Believe me when I say that it isn’t just for characters you see in movies, songs or books. We need to pay attention to find it and a little push to make it last. There’s no blueprint to it; every individual has their map that only they can see. With a bit of courage and a lot of selflessness, love can bloom exponentially. Love takes two willing people for it to work. It is about two souls being authentically responsive towards each other’s dreams, aspirations, and needs.
When two people compromise for each other, that is when they connect at a deeper level. Just like anything in this world, relationships will always face its challenges. It will all depend on how far can we can go to keep our person by our side. Every day can be a battle because nothing in this world comes easy, especially if you are unfolding life’s most profound meaning. So take it one day at a time, asking yourself “How will I love my person today?”
