If you put relationships on a scale where you could rate them from one being lowest to ten which would be the highest a lot of people would rate their relationship somewhere in the middle, let’s hope so anyway. I guess when you think about it being in the middle of the scale is better than being to the far left.
As one moves from the excitement of the first date to years invested, without any effort life with the same person can become a bit boring and stagnant making one ask the question, “Why am I still here?” Or worse, doing something that they will definitely regret.
In questioning ones self and the status of their relationship can a person honestly say that they have done everything possible to make their relationship better? If the answer is yes then the next question asked, is their mate feeling the same way (stagnant) and putting forth the same efforts? If their answer is yes to feeling the same way but no to putting forth the effort then possibly there are more unanswered questions that need to be asked.
Hmmm, what if?
What if tomorrow never came? In essence there are really no guarantees because tomorrow is not promised to anyone. Since that is the case, what if one started to look at today differently? What if today individuals by choice started to make their relationships better? Better by putting forth the effort needed to jump start that certain spark that has been missing, in some cases for many years.
Start off with the want, need and desire to make things better. Perhaps one could use a compliment or encouraging words to help their mate get through the day. Something as simple as “Thank you for all that you do,” can be just enough to start the ball rolling in the right direction.
Whatever you do don’t just try things once and forget about it. Make a conscious effort to make this a part of your everyday routine. A constant effort should not go un-noticed. Sometimes people not only need to hear kind words, they also need to feel the sincerity of the words being spoken.
In the end moving from the middle of the scale to the right of the scale should be the goal by all in a relationship. Not everyone will end up with a ten but coming very close is definitely worth the effort.
