One lady said to me one of the best, most unexpected things I found out about my husband is the incredible sense of peace he gives me. I’ve never before been in a relationship where I’ve felt so calm and at ease all of the time.
Sometimes, we get in a relationship pattern of fight, make up, fight, make up. And it’s terrible because we start to think this is what relationships are supposed to be like. But they’re not. The right relationships are supposed to fill you with an overwhelming sense of content and peace.
If you don’t feel peace in your relationship (and conversely, if your partner makes you feel stressed), then you should assess whether you want to keep going with them, because it’s probably not the right relationship for you. The strongest couples, acceptance doesn’t require a conversation… it’s a given.
Your partner should make you feel like every single part of you is awesome. They should even help you like the parts of you that you haven’t liked in the past. If your current significant other doesn’t make you feel completely accepted all the time, then it’s likely your relationship won’t last.
