Finding Your Ever After

Dec 29, 2007
Admit it, most of us have once dreamed of snagging our fateful Prince charming when we were still very young girls playing with dolls and portraying fairy tale princesses. As we grow up, we meet a lot of prospects and more often than not we wish that we have finally found the one that we have been waiting for. But "ever after" we unfortunately discover is just made-up by storybook writers and do not really come close to real life situations. More often than not, we find fair maidens sighing head on their hands or sadly, most of the time crying their hearts out because things have not worked out as they hoped they would. Although there are no earmarked guidelines in finding Mr. Right, here are a few matters that you can look into that may give you an idea or two on whether you are on the right track.

You are still you. When you find that you have maintained your individuality and have your self worth in check in spite of being in a serious devoted relationship means that you are maturely prepared for commitment. It is important that you keep a life outside and beyond your cozy company of two. Couple hood does not mean that you have to let go of yourself and portray a whole new person as John Doe's girlfriend. Indulging and maintaining your passions when you were single will psychologically keep you healthy and up on your feet. Your moods will not only be fresher and better but the green light of envy does not show itself too easily too. This is because if you are too consumed and focused on your relationship, jealousy easily works its way effortlessly into your system. You cling too much and that is not good for any relationship. Let go and be free. You not only give yourself a new perspective but you also give you and your partner space and time to breathe and be your own identity.

When your partner is able to bring out the best in you would mean that your bond is definitely heading in the right direction. Love, they say, is such a wonderful thing and it should no less than bring great and beautiful results. That happy love feeling should morph you into being a funnier, smarter, nicer and more beautiful version of yourself. Inspiration ought to bring about positivity and more energy in all aspects of your life. If you are getting grumpier and haughtier by the day, then there must be something wrong. The relationship could not be as good for you as you have been led to believe. Better look at the relationship's facets that are making you miserable and correct them as early as you can. If this does not work, then it may be best to forego and allow yourself to move on to something different.

You know you are in a good relationship when you can fight but kiss and make up every time. Arguments which are quite common are the zest of relationships. Each of us is uniquely different and these differences may clash over time. With spats, we are able to know more about our partners and the discussion after allows us to understand and accept the other person's distinctive characteristics. With each clash, you get to grow with your partner and be able to establish a more meaningful and stronger relationship that is not only built on your similar interest but also on the recognition of your differences.
