Through the combination of our education, training, and personal life experiences, we've learned to create the relationship of our dreams and to help others create theirs. And don't get us wrong, we still have upsets, get frustrated, and question each other, but now we know how to navigate those challenges. We know how to communicate with each other, we know how to support each other, we strive to love each other, and recognize each other's strengths and lift each other's weaknesses. We've learned the practice of not taking things personally. Our commitment is to work through whatever comes up, no matter what. We are a team, and we tackle our problems together instead of against each other.
Now we've put in the miles to foster a healthy, loving, supportive relationship, but it didn't happen by accident, and it certainly didn't happen overnight. We didn't just get "lucky." We worked HARD for it. And it's not done. We've learned to listen, to forgive, to apologize, to be honest, to acknowledge each other, and to discover something new about each other daily so that we are always growing. Now that we're not spending time and energy working shit out, we get to USE that energy being romantic, creative, playful, silly, loving, and joyful (and our kids reap the benefits too...).
