If there is something missing in your relationship, it’s what you’re not giving. I don’t know what’s missing, I don’t know what you long for; but I know you have it to give. Because LOVE has it to give. The courage to drop your defenses. The passion to fan a dying romance. The faith and fortitude to try again–to stop nagging, to stop defending yourself, to stop opposing each other. The patience to be present and listen. The wisdom to accept your partner unconditionally. The strength to stand up for what serves you and let go of what doesn’t. The freedom to be who you are! You can find them all in love! And love is what you’re made of.
You don’t have to find them all at once, though. You can’t! You can only find what you have the faith to claim. Exercise the faith you can muster. As you claim what you’re able to believe for, you grow your faith. Then, you can claim more. And when you have given what’s missing, you will have it in your relationship–even if it means moving on to another relationship.
It’s not about finding a better way; it’s about following the way you already know! Give what you want to get. Sow what you want to reap.
