We don’t develop courage by being happy every day. We develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity. – Barbara de Angelis
Just the other day, I took a taxi ride after a midnight movie with a friend.
As I struck a conversation with the driver, he said wearily, “It’s tiring driving at night. It’s not like others understand.”
Me:“Yeah, but it’s worth it for your family.”
Him: “Yeah! Everything I’m doing for my family is worth it.” (His face lighted up)
Me: “Your wife must be very happy.”
Him: “I’ve been married for 30 years. There’s no perfect wife. It takes time to work on it. It took 30 years. There’s no perfect person in the world. You are not perfect. You can’t expect a perfect wife. But you can work things out. It takes time. And effort.”
He’s happily married with three kids. I didn’t get his name as I was listening too in-depth on his stories.
It was a short 10 minutes ride, but he imparted a powerful lesson on relationship. As with any relationship, you need to put in the time and effort.
You may not find the perfect person, but you may find the right person for you. The perfect fit for you. Someone who understands you. Someone who accepts you as you are. Someone whom you love and loves you the same.
Relationship is not something to be taken for granted for.
It is something that you need to work on, put in effort. Every. Single. Day.
What would you do to improve on your relationship? Remember, it may not be easy. But it would worth every effort that you take.
