Don't Believe These Lies

Let’s face it - we are all subject to cultural messaging. Many of us have beliefs about relationships that aren’t serving us.

Books, movies, and music taught us:

Passion never fades when you’re in love.

We as a society need to have a conversation about this because this is simply NOT TRUE.

As I took time to reflect on this belief I realized something important.

The passion, butterflies, sparks, and excitement of the early days are incredible. As time passes and your love grows deeper, that “spark” may feel as though it’s diminished. For a lot of people, this causes a panic - as many perceive this change as an indicator of disaster.

Often, we fail to realize that a stable and secure relationship involves less fluttering breathlessness than the early stages of dating. As our affections grow stronger and the love grows deeper the relationship will mature. The spark is always still there, and it can be reignited with attention and energy.

So often we are focused on the novelty of a new relationship that we fail to see the truly beautiful occurrence happening right in front of us. Growing together and sharing experiences is truly one of the most beautiful parts of falling in love.

Making time for new experiences and prioritizing your intimacy keeps the flame lit and the passion alive.

At the same time, our society perpetuates this idea that a relationship is required for a perfect and happy life. We are told that our partners are supposed to “complete” us.

We’ve heard it time and time again - “My partner completes me!” or “They’re my other half!”

This is a LIE. You are already complete and enough, as you are.

Experiencing love or having a partner does not fill or fix or cure anything.

The great thing is that the right partner can be a positive influence. They can support you through your healing in a loving and committed relationship. Someone else can add to your experience - but they can not do the work for you.

Your partner is there to complement you, rather than “complete you”.
