Five Things You Should Not Expect to Get From Your Relationships (Unless You Already Supply All of Them For Yourself)

Today's post comes in close connection with yesterday's post titled Five Things Relationships are Good For. While it may appear that both posts have been written tongue-in-cheek, that is, in fact, not the case. I'm trying to make a very serious point. What we get from relationships - the great benefits we get from them - tend not to be what we are expecting, and conversely, what we should not expect from them, tends to be precisely what we do expect from them. That, of course, explains why so many fail...

If, however, we use relationships to grow and learn, then they can be so much more than what our televised sit-coms and romance novels try to make us believe they are. A relationship is one of the swiftest roads to the self, to inner growth and to great love, if only we could understand this.
  1. Happiness
  2. Fulfilment
  3. Satisfaction
  4. Security
  5. Happy-Ever-After
