Friend of mine once asked me what relationship is when she had problems with her own fears relate to her boyfriend long time ago.
So, I told her relationship is like two people holding a cup together.
In this case, the cup is not plastic as you can imagine.
Maybe China that really precious and beautiful but sensitive and fragile.
You can imagine how hard to hold a cup with two people.
We need to keep balance, and when one hand gets tired another hand needs to support another hand and make sure to not drop it.
I believe that we can say same thing for our any relationship.
Unfortunately or fortunately, relationship cannot really visible.
This is why often we get misunderstood and makes things complicated.
But, if you imagine that our relationship is a beautiful cup that we wanna treat well and keep the beauty forever, then we know what to do.
Building relationship is taking a time and effort.
Sometimes, maybe not so beautiful, maybe ugly.
But, both parties need effort to the relationship works.
We all have egos, prides and fears, but if you know how your cup is precious, then, please think about what is the benefits to keep that egos that affect the cup.
So, please look at your heart to release them and build strong relationship with your loved ones.
You don’t have to be in rush to do that.
But, take one steady step toward to the cup.
If you do that, then, your partner knows how you value your relationship even taking a time. Because, true love can overcome any difficulties.
And this makes the holding hands and the cup stronger than before.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NIV)
