(Share) Love and relationship

During a seminar, a woman asked," How do I know if I am with the right person?"

The author then noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so he said, "It 

depends. Is that your partner?" In all seriousness, she answered "How do you know?" Let 

me answer this question because the chances are good that it's weighing on your mind 

replied the author.

Here's the answer.

Every relationship has a cycle… In the beginning; you fall in love with your partner. You 

anticipate their calls, want their touch, and like their idiosyncrasies. Falling in love wasn't 

hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didn't have to 

DO anything. That's why it's called "falling" in love.

People in love sometimes say, "I was swept of my feet."Picture the expression. It implies 

that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something happened TO YOU.

Falling in love is a passive and spontaneous experience. But after a few months or years of 

being together, the euphoria of love fades. It's a natural cycle of EVERY relationship.

Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always 

welcome (when it happens), and your spouse's idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive 

you nuts. The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship; you will notice a 

dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or 

even angry subsequent stage.

At this point, you and/or your partner might start asking, "Am I with the right person?" And 

as you reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that 

experience with someone else. This is when relationships breakdown.

The key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it's learning to love 

the person you found.

People blame their partners for their unhappiness and look outside for fulfillment. 

Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes.

Infidelity is the most common. But sometimes people turn to work, a hobby, friendship, 

excessive TV, or abusive substances. But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside 

your relationship. It lies within it.

I'm not saying that you couldn't fall in love with someone else. You could. And 

TEMPORARILY you'd feel better. But you'd be in the same situation a few years later.

Because (listen carefully to this):

The key to succeeding in a Relationship is not finding the right person; it's learning to love 

the Person you found.

SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. You have to work on it day 

in and day out. It takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it demands 

WISDOM. You have to know WHAT TO DO to make it work. Make no mistake about it.

Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your partner), 

Just as there are physical laws Of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for 

relationships. If you know how to apply these laws, the results are predictable.

Love is therefore a "decision". Not just a feeling.

Remember this always: God determines who walks into your life. It is up to you to decide 

who you let walk away, who you let stay, and who you refuse to let GO..

Moral of the Story : "If its not working , make it work ! toil hard"
