Because of this, our marriage is better than it ever has been, and it continues to get better. It hasn't been easy, but it has been beyond worth it.
Seems simple? Well, it shouldn't because it's not supposed to be. Marriage is work, but when you put in the effort and have selected the right person to begin with, it's the best investment that pays the best dividends you could ever ask for.
REMEMBER: "The garden isn't greener on the other side of the fence. It's greener where you care for it and water it."
The same is said for marriages. You have to be proactive by watering and “tilling the soil”. You have to give a shit, every, single, day. Otherwise, the weeds take over and things die.
But it is this sort of proactivity and willingness to work on ourselves, and our relationships don't start when you are married. It begins today with you.
Instead of tackling your relationship problems (or a lack of relationships) alone, assuming that you know how. Be honest. When you humbly admit you have some issues and that you could benefit from guidance and help, you are not afraid or ashamed to hire a professional.
And the best kind of professional is someone who studies relationships as I do for a living, someone like a relationship coach. Relationship coaches are professionals who help people in this area of life. They know this terrain and the bonus is they are skills that transfer into all life areas.
