I was going through Sakshi’s blog, which I happened to land upon today and found myself spending more and more time reading her posts…
I really liked something she wrote in one of her post’s “Live-In relationship vs Marriage” and I quote:
The love that we all want from a partner is not possible without both having the commitment to try to make it last. Cooperation, compromise, that sort of thing. There’s a saying, “Happiness in marriage is not so much FINDING the right person as BEING the right person.”
If it’s easy to change one partner for another, where’s the incentive to develop staying power in a relationship? Instead people will think “I’m upset at my partner which means I’m with the wrong person. I’m going to get out so I can hook up with the right person.” It’s human nature, and and i think that this approach is creating increased numbers of people without the ability to sustain a long-term relationship.
It’s definately an eye-opener. So simple and true!
I’m gonna go back to reading some more of her posts :)
i think this is one of the best threads i’ve come across in a long time… totally exemplifies the idea of “web 2.0″!
read this one surabhi’s blog. quite true and very inspirational… something i should put up on my wall cause i need a constant reminder of this:
The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think, say or do. It is more important than appearance, gift, or skill. It will make or break a company…a church…a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… The only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our attitudes.
