“Relationships need a lot of hard work.”
Is it just me or do we hear that line all the time?
Guess what? A good relationship must actually be easy.
A happy, healthy, and long-lasting relationship is built on a fertile soil of love, compatibility, good character, and commitment. The nurturing of such relationship sure takes consistent effort. Hard work? Nope.
The problem with encouraging the association of a relationship with hardship can lead to accepting striving, struggling, and sometimes plain misery as normal aspects of developing a close bond with a special someone.
If you want to harvest a happy, healthy, and long-lasting relationship, invest in seeds of ease and comfort, and commit to consistent but reasonable gardening efforts.
If a relationship takes "hard work", it’s best to do a graceful exit before making a life commitment.
