A great relationship doesn’t happen
because of all the love you had in the beginning…
but how well you continue building love until the end.
Rome wasn’t built in a day!
If you seriously think you MUST build it in a day then realize the compromise you are intending:
You are choosing not to build Rome… You are choosing to compromise the profound complexity and beauty which Rome would entail.
Here is today’s Nugget-
Personal relationships aren’t built in a day either. They require time… They require:
- Contemplation- How do I feel about myself in this relationship?
- Consistency- Time and again, show up confident (I deserve love)… curious (What’s his perspective on this?)… kind (Speak in support of yourself and let him save face!)
- Commitment- Loyalty and trust are non-negotiable.
If you want it all to happen in just one day, go for it; but know you are not building epic, enduring Rome, founded April 21, 753 BC.
And yes, Rome has seen a lot of ups and downs over the centuries… but it is still standing; a thriving symbol of passion and beauty!
