Have you lost hope that your relationship will survive?
Hope is the bi-product of perseverance! That is why when you really love your partner, you should never give up!
Success depends upon your staying power. It requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work sacrifice, dedication and respect for your partner.
“More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope.” ~ Romans 5:3-4
Any relationship that lasts will have conflict and trouble. It’s how you handle it that makes a difference. It is incredibly important that you have an attitude of perseverance in your relationships. Perhaps it’s time to pour new energy into your relationship, showing your partner just how much they mean to you. Never give up on your relationship!
“Adversity, and perseverance and all these things can shape you. They can give you a value and a self-esteem that is priceless.” ~ Scott Hamilton
A marriage is supposed to be a lifetime commitment; it is a pledge to do whatever it takes and whatever is necessary to keep your relationship together. Everyone has issues come and go in relationships. You need to know that there is nothing that cannot be forgiven. I repeat… nothing! It’s important to be committed to not to have issues in your marriage cause you to give up.
“Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.” ~ John Quincy Adams
If relationships were easy, than everybody would have one and no one would get hurt. That’s not the way the world works. If you want yours to last, you have to be willing to put in extra effort and get relationship coaching when the issues are beyond your expertise. There is no shame is requesting assistance.
There are many things you can do that will help you save your marriage and make it stronger. You both have to be willing to make the effort to sit down and calmly talk about your relationship issues or with the aid of a relationship coach.
“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no help at all.” ~ Dale Carnegie
In my experience, many of the issues couples face is that they hold on to being “right.” Letting go of being right is not the same as giving in. It’s the holding on to your position without sincerely listening to the issue from your partner’s point of view that keeps you both stuck. Understanding this means you can move forward and experience a more genuine love relationship.
“Consider the postage stamp; its usefulness consists in the ability to stick to one thing until it gets there.” ~ Josh Billings
Take a stand for your relationship! Do everything to recreate a relationship that works for both partners. Work to restore your relationship by studying useful tips to satisfy the needs of you and your partner. You must speak life and commitment into our relationship. In the midst of troubling issues, reminding yourself and your partner of your commitment is a great help in helping to make a relationship work. Speak to each other in loving ways. Read good books, attend relationship seminars together. Work together. Never quit.
“There is no failure except in no longer trying.” ~ Elbert Hubbard
