Communication with your partner shouldn’t just be about talking to one another everyday. It should always be about conveying your feelings and emotions honestly to one another without fear of being judged or looking weak. Everyone wants to be reassured that the person they fell in-love with still loves them immeasurably. Assuming that they should know how you feel about them doesn’t always yield the best results and when you’re in a relationship with someone, getting carried away with the fact that they’re already in your life can lead to complacency, which in turn leads to uncertainties.
When was the last time you wrote your partner a love letter? Or reassured them that your love for them is eternal?
Complacency often leads to us taking our partners for granted. They start questioning if we’ve gotten tired of them or if there’s someone else in the picture. Don’t assume that your partner knows exactly how you feel. You have to be intentional about expressing your truest feelings with your lover each and everyday.
There are no days off in a relationship. Constant effort has to be put in everyday and reassuring your partner of your love for them has to be a priority. Telling your partner you love them at random moments of the day can be so reassuring to hear. Reassurance helps us deal with insecurities . And knowing that the person you fell in-love with still loves you passionately helps curb any fears you may have towards your relationship.
Practice reassurance this week. Make conscious efforts to WOW your partner with love. Don’t be too comfortable that you forget to keep toasting (chasing after) your partner/lover. Keep that same energy you used in getting them to fall in-love with you and maybe even turn it up a notch or two from time to time.
Love is an energy force that needs to be maintained and improved on daily. Don’t get so used to someone that you forget to appreciate them for who they are in your life.
- With Love, From Love.
