“When we’re incomplete, we’re always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we’re still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising.
This can go on and on–series polygamy–until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment.
Nobody else can provide it for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter.” – Tom Robbins
Today, Titilope Abiona talks about the 5 Most Important Things you need for your Relationship to Last.
This is the process of transferring information from one person to another. It is the bedrock of any successful relationship, if you want the relationship to last. Both partners must cultivate the habit of talking with each other because it gives room for both of them to know themselves better and by so doing the relationship becomes stronger.
This a feeling of happiness or satisfaction. When you are in a relationship with your partner you must be content with whatever your partner is doing for you. This will make your partner happy and more encouraged to do more things. The scripture says in 1 Timothy 6:6 that “godliness with contentment is a great gain“.
(3) FEAR OF GOD
The scripture says in Proverbs 9 : 10 that “the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom“. For a relationship to be very strong it needs to be under the control of God and it takes a spiritual person to do this. God’s presence has to be in the relationship and as this continues the journey of the relationship becomes smoother.
This is the state at which a person is fully developed. Maturity is at different stages(Physical, spiritual, emotional, mental, financial). Both of the partners must be fully matured so as to cope with each other and by so doing the relationship will last.
(5) FORGIVING SPIRIT
This means to pardon or show mercy to someone for being rude. This is very important in a relationship, especially if you desire that the relationship becomes stronger. Someone once said, “marriage is between forgivers”. This is because both are from different backgrounds and it means that theywill have different area of weakness and so they must be ready to forgive each other to make their relationship stronger.
