Relationships are hard work. You need to invest and give attention to it. You have to nurture and make time for it. Our partners are heaven sent because at one point in our lives we prayed for them. We prayed for the relationship to happen.
We highlight them in our stories. We told them the wonderful things that they do for us. How great they are and how positive life is whenever we are with them. All the happy things, everything bright and sunshiney. We drowned other people of the happiness we have or maybe just kept quiet about it. We protect the people we love.
Everyone is close to perfection until you or they were out of the relationship. I admire our human capacity to close our eyes to flaws and short-comings of our partners. Are we blinded by love? Or are we just scared to see the truth that we cannot accept? I am amazed on how we can just let the issues pass and make everything okay because we don’t want our relationship to be tainted with arguments and petty fights. We persevere amidst the issues. We protect whatever it is that we have because we think that this might be the last.
That’s the thing – this is usually the root of it all. The root of abuse and the start of us fading away into the relationship we thought is good for us. We are so scared of losing the feeling of being loved or wanted or we are just simply scared of losing.
The truth is ,that’s how we do it.We protect the people we love as much as we can until we can no longer take it. We protect the people we love until we no longer love them. We protect the people we love until they hurt us. We protect the people we love until they walked away and left us broken.
We protect the people we love,until they cross the line.
